Prepare build environment¶
For Debian based distributions, run:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential libssl-dev libncurses5-dev \ unzip gawk zlib1g-dev subversion mercurial
For other environments, instructions can be found in the official documentation.
Get OpenWRT Sources (from Git)¶
The OpenWRT build will fail if you run it as root. So take care to run it as a nonprivileged user.
Clone the OpenWRT sources and retrieve the package feeds
git clone https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt.git cd openwrt ./scripts/feeds update -a ./scripts/feeds install -a cd feeds/routing git fetch origin pull/319/head git read-tree --prefix=frr/ -u FETCH_HEAD:frr cd ../../package/feeds/routing/ ln -sv ../../../feeds/routing/frr . cd ../../..
Configure OpenWRT for your target and select the needed FRR packages in Network -> Routing and Redirection -> frr, exit and save
Then, to compile either a complete OpenWRT image, or the FRR packages, run:
make or make package/frr/compile
It may be possible that on first build
make package/frr/compile not
to work and it may be needed to run a
make for the entire build
V=s to get more debugging output.
Work with sources¶
To update to a newer version, or change other options, you need to edit the
