Main resource to carry the compilation out:
Steps done to carry the compilation out:
Install Ubuntu libraries:
$ sudo apt-get install g++ libncurses5-dev libncurses5 zlib1g-dev zlib1g gawk flex build-essential
Note: You can execute all 3(next) first steps in a row with
“$ svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/backfire && cd backfire && make menuconfig”
0nd. Step into the directory you want to have the “backfire” or the SDK.
1st. Get the latest “backfire” from the svn repository:
$ svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/backfire
2nd. Access the downloaded directory:
$ cd backfire.
3rd.UPDATE THE FEEDS:
$ ./scripts/feeds update -a && ./scripts/feeds install -a
4th. Execute the configuration menu:
$ make menuconfig.
5th. In our case, the TP-link tl-mr3220/tl-mr3420 uses an atheros chipset. To simplify this we will install, anyway, all the wireless drivers by default included and select the target system to:
–> System: Atheros AR71xx/AR7240/AR913x
OPTIONAL – Select also:
–> [*] Build the OpenWrt SDK
–> [*] Build the OpenWrt based Toolchain
SPECIAL NOTE: In order to save time I recommend to carry the steps 5 and 6 at the same time and go for a coffee or something with good company and without carying much about the time you spend.
$ make package/symlinks V=99 && make download world V=99
6th. Add the “packages” to build environment. This command downloads all the Makefiles for the extended packages of the system and they will appear if we do a “make menuconfig” afterwards. This might take a little while.
$ make package/symlinks V=99
7th. Tell the system to download the sources needed and compile all the packages:
$make download world V=99
That was all for now :).
Have a nice week!
