Building OpenWrt for the Seagate Dockstar

We use the bleeding edge-branch, since Dockstar support has yet to be merged into backfire:

cd openwrt
svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/

  • Go to ~/openwrt/trunk and run
    make menuconfig
    Once the config menu starts, set the following options (ex: select "Target System" menu and then use the space bar to enable "Marvell Kirkwood"):

Target System->Marvell Kirkwood
Target Profile->Seagate Dockstar
Boot Loaders->uboot-kirkwood-dockstar

  • Now build images
    make V=99
    It is not a bad idea to log the output from make so if something happens you can try to figure out what is going on (or ask for help).
    • Files will be in the bin/kirkwood/ directory:
      raub@ubuntu2:~/openwrt/trunk$ ls -lh bin/kirkwood/
