OpenWRT Barrier_Breaker 14.07 on VMWare ESXi HowTo

This article describes how to use OpenWRT Barrier Breaker 14.07 under VMWare virtualisation.

Tested with: Barrier Breaker 14.07 in combination with VMWare ESXi 5.5 Update 2 Build 2068190

Things you need:

First of all, you need to download the openwrt-x86-generic-combined-ext4.img.gz on Linux. After that you extract & convert it to a vmdk image:

gunzip openwrt-x86-generic-combined-ext4.img.gz
qemu-img convert -f raw openwrt-x86-generic-combined-ext4.img  -O vmdk openwrt-x86-generic-combined-ext4.vmdk
after that, just create a new VM in ESXi with "Linux\Other Linux 32-bit" with LSI BUS Logic & add the vmdk there. Use 1000e Network adapters.
