"We do not use glibc. Like most openwrt based firmwares we use uclibc."
"We use Open-WRT but the switch core has it's own code provided by the
manufacturer just like UBNT or any switch.
The Open-WRT is just the UI and some modules that offload some protocol
controls like LACP/RSTP and such but the switching itself is always
handled inside core with it's own pre-loaded code."
"Please press Enter to activate this console. vtss_core: module license
'(c) Vitesse Semiconductor Inc.' taints kernel.
