Information

This project aims to recreate most of the Openlink distribution using buildroot so that it is possible to easily cross compile the whole of Openlink on a Linux workstation. This will provide a clear cut way of maintaining Openlink and be useful to those who want to customise a Linux distribution for their own projects.

Buildroot is patched to use toolchains produced by crosstool so that it is possible to use glibc instead of the usual uclibc support provided by buildroot. Note that this is intended as a way of maintaining Openlink, not as a package management system.

Project Status

The buildroot project is still in the initial stages of construction. Currently it will not create a bootable image. If you want to contribute or try it out read the howto then checkout the subversion trunk.

Subversion Access

To get the project install subversion and type:

svn co http://svn.artage.com/svn/linkstation/trunk/
