OpenWrt Buildroot works on Linux, [[wp>Comparison of BSD operating systems|~BSD]] or MacOSX operating system (case-sensitive filesystem required). It is recommended that you use a Linux distribution ([[wp>Debian]] is recommended), either a standalone installation or one running in a virtual environment ([[wp>VMware]] or [[wp>Qemu]])
 + 
 +[[wp>Cygwin]] will not be supported because of the lack of case sensitiveness in the file system.
-[[wp>Cygwin]] will probably not work correctly, and while it is possible to build OpenWrt images on a [[wp>Comparison of BSD operating systems|~BSD]] or on MacOSX system, success is not guaranteed. Feel free to try and then report back with your results. Don't forget to read [[#Troubleshooting]].

-| ''**# aptitude install** libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev gawk flex libssl-dev sdcc-nf '' |+(see [[https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/GetSource]]) You can either check out the OpenWrt source code via git or svn.
-Fedora 11: +==== GIT ==== 
-| ''**# yum install** binutils bzip2 gawk gcc gcc-c++ gettext make ncurses-devel patch unzip wget zlib-devel flex git-core'' |+The recommended way of checking out the OpenWrt source code is cloning the Git repository using one of the following commands:
-openSuSE 11.1 +=== trunk (main development tree) === 
-| ''**# zypper install** binutils bzip2 gawk gcc gcc-c++ gettext make ncurses-devel patch unzip wget zlib-devel flex git-core'' |+The development branch (trunk) contains everything from documentation to <color yellow>**//experimental//**</color> <color red>**//patches//**</color>. 
 +== Main repository ==
-Ubuntu: +<code bash>git clone git://git.openwrt.org/openwrt.git</code>
-| ''**$ sudo apt-get install** build-essential subversion libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev gawk flex'' |+
-Ubuntu 9.10, I needed also these (30-03-2011): +== Packages feed ==
-| ''**$ sudo apt-get install** gcc-multilib bison autoconf screen gcc g++ binutils patch bzip2 flex make gettext unzip libc6 git-core'' |+
-Ubuntu 11.10: +<code bash>git clone git://git.openwrt.org/packages.git</code>
-| ''**$ sudo apt-get install** build-essential subversion git-core libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev gawk flex quilt'' |+
-Ubuntu 64bit: +=== 12.09 branch (Attitude Adjustment) ===
-| ''**$ sudo apt-get install** build-essential subversion libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev gawk gcc-multilib flex git-core gettext'' |+
 +== Main repository ==
 +<code bash>git clone git://git.openwrt.org/12.09/openwrt.git</code>
-Mac OS X (tested on 64-bit Lion): +== Packages feed ==
-  - Download [[http://www.macports.org/install.php#pkg|MacPorts .pkg Installer]], and install (horizontal scroll for entire second command): +
-  - <code>sudo port -v selfupdate</code> +
-  - <code>sudo port install coreutils asciidoc bzip2 fastjar flex getopt gtk2 intltool jikes zlib openssl p5-extutils-makemaker python26 rsync ruby sdcc unzip gettext libxslt bison gawk autoconf wget gmake ncurses e2fsprogs osso-uuid</code> +
-  - **Required for 64-bit OS X**: After checking out the source tree via svn above, we need to edit **trunk/tools/Makefile** +
-  * On line 17, erase the instance of "e2fsprogs" but leave the rest of the line +
-  * Comment out line 22, line 50, line 52, line 58 with the hash symbol, by putting # at the beginning of each line. They are the lines that issue qemu to be built, followed by the build dependancies for mtd-utils (dep: e2fsprogs), qemu (dep: e2fsprogs), and e2fsprogs respectively. +
-  * Then copy the required headers and libraries to compile tools/mtd-utils <code>cd trunk; +
-mkdir -p staging_dir/host/include/e2fsprogs; +
-cp -R /opt/local/include/ossp staging_dir/host/include/e2fsprogs/; +
-cp /opt/local/lib/libuuid* staging_dir/host/lib </code> +
-See thread: [[https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=34676|[HOWTO] Build OpenWRT Trunk from svn on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion]] for more details+
 +<code bash>git clone git://git.openwrt.org/12.09/packages.git</code>
-Notes: +=== Check out certain revision === 
-   * In Debian or Ubuntu use <code>apt-cache search ""</code> to find prerequisite packages. Naming is sometimes different +git commits are tagged with SVN ids. 
-  * In openSuSE some packages require additional repositories. Search on http://packages.opensuse-community.org and add repositories like that: <code>;zypper ar "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_11.1/devel:languages:perl.repo";</code> +<code bash>git log --grep=<svn id></code>
-  * To build your images on a Mac OS X Machine all you need is the package "fileutils" from the //fink project//. (Tested on Leopard 10.5.3)+
 +==== SVN ====
 +You can checkout the source from the OpenWrt Subversion repository using one of the following commands:
-===== Downloading Sources ===== +=== trunk (main development tree) === 
-Short version: [[https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/GetSource]]\\ +The development branch (trunk) contains everything from documentation to <color yellow>**//experimental//**&lt;/color&gt; &lt;color red&gt;**//patches//**</color>;. 
-You have two choices:  +<code bash>svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/</code>
-  * Download the latest stable release, or  +
-  * Download the bleeding edge development snapshot (currently named &quot;Barrier Breaker&quot;, but often called &quot;trunk&quot;)+
-The official repository is in svn but you can also choose to use git if you're building trunk. Refer to the [[https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/GetSource|GetSource]] for the URLs and amend the following commands appropriately.+
-==== Using Release Sources (stable) ==== 
-As of this writing, the latest stable release is OpenWrt 10.03 "Backfire". There is a Backfire branch in SVN repository, which is still slowly being updated with verified patches. Using it will most likely produce a stable and working OpenWrt installation, but all the newest features and patches might not be there. As an example, this will check out the source code that the backfire release is built from (plus the latest backported fixes from trunk): 
-<code> +=== 12.09 branch "Attitude Adjustment" === 
-svn checkout svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/backfire +<code bash>svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/attitude_adjustment</code>
-</code>+
 +
 +=== 10.03 branch "Backfire" ===

 +<code bash>svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/8.09</code>
 +
 +
 +=== 7.09 branch "Kamikaze" ===
 +<code bash>svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/tags/kamikaze_7.09</code>
 +
 +
 +=== Tagged ===
You could alternatively download a 'tagged' version of the backfire sources. For instance, if you insist on using the pristine release sources (no backported fixes applied after the last release), you could use: You could alternatively download a 'tagged' version of the backfire sources.
