You may use Debian 8.11 "Jessie" , Debian 9.13 "Stretch" , Debian 10.11 "Buster" or Debian 11.1 "Bullseye" right on your Keenetic router.

http://files.keenopt.ru/ is a good example of working Debian on Keenetic Giga III.

! Dropping mips architecture

Requirements

Installation

           ( for KN-2011 or KN-2111 - debian-jessie-8_11-mips.tar.gz or debian-stretch-9_13-mips.tar.gz or debian-buster-10.11-mips.tar.gz ),

           ( for KN-2710 - debian-buster-10.11-aarch64.tar.gz or debian-bullseye-11.1-aarch64.tar.gz)

  • Open OPKG page, pick your USB drive and hit "Apply".

Give your Keenetic a couple of minutes to unpack necessary files, you''ll see following syslog messages if all went fine:

Using Debian

Use following SSH credentials to get access to Debian environment:

  • host: my.keenetic.net,
  • port: 222
  • user name: root,
  • password: debian.

This is it, you've got 10000+ available packages from one of greatest linux community!

For 64MB RAM devices is highly recommended to turn on Swap-file.

 

Details

You see chroot-environment after SSH logon, there's only minimal Busubox outside of it and /opt/etc/initrc script to fire up sandbox, this script starts necessary Debian services on boot and gracefully shut them down on reboot or unmount USB drive:

 

[I] Jul 19 10:28:36 root: Stopping Debian services...
[I] Jul 19 10:28:36 sshd[448]: Received signal 15; terminating.
[I] Jul 19 13:28:36 ndm: Opkg::Manager: /opt/etc/initrc: Stopping OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd.
[I] Jul 19 13:28:36 ndm: Opkg::Manager: /opt/etc/initrc: Done.
[I] Jul 19 13:28:36 ndm: Opkg::Manager: disk unmounted.

Also, you'll find /chroot-services.list file, where you can put new services which should be started on boot, please use one name per string, service names can be taken from  /etc/init.d.

Good luck!
