Compex WPJ342

This document explains several ways to compile compile qMp for a Compex WPJ342.

Standard compilation

1) Get the OpenWrt Attitude Adjustment 12.09 SDK for the WPJ342 from Compex: http://www.compex.com.sg/openwrtdownload.aspx

2) Save the OpenWrt SDK file to your working directory and extract it (as of 23rd July 2014, the latest version is sdkowrt-140604.tar.bz2, which comes inside the file b140604.rar):

tar -xf sdkowrt-140604.tar.bz2

and enter to the newly created directory "sdkowrt-140604".

3) By default this SDK builds the firmware for the WPJ344 board, not the WPJ342. The Makefile file needs to be slightly changed. Open it with your text editor and find the section "standard_config:":

standard_config:
    cp $(CONFIG_PATH)/wpj344.config $(OWRT_DIST_LOCAL_PATH)/.config
    rm -rf $(OWRT_DIST_LOCAL_PATH)/tmp

Replace it with:

standard_config:
    cp $(CONFIG_PATH)/wpj342.config $(OWRT_DIST_LOCAL_PATH)/.config
    rm -rf $(OWRT_DIST_LOCAL_PATH)/tmp

4) Run make to compile OpenWrt (without qMp, by now):

make

This will take a while and will download several megabytes of files to ~/dl-openwrt. If you want extra verbosity, run make V=99 to get details of the compilation.

5) The compilation will fail, since the hotplug2 package sources are no longer available at the destination stated in its Makefile. Edit openwrt/package/hotplug2/Makefile with your favourite editor and replace this:

PKG_SOURCE_PROTO:=svn
PKG_SOURCE_VERSION:=$(PKG_REV)
PKG_SOURCE_SUBDIR:=hotplug2-$(PKG_VERSION)
PKG_SOURCE_URL:=http://svn.nomi.cz/svn/isteve/hotplug2
PKG_SOURCE:=$(PKG_SOURCE_SUBDIR).tar.gz
#PKG_SOURCE_URL:=http://isteve.bofh.cz/~isteve/hotplug2
#PKG_MD5SUM:=ea2c01d027b4002e4e6b0ff266f51a51

with this:

PKG_SOURCE:=$(PKG_NAME)-$(PKG_VERSION).tar.gz
PKG_SOURCE_URL:=http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/
PKG_MD5SUM:=7bab8ba67555a8400424f3c92ec67579

See https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset/41503 for details.

6) Retry compilation:

make

Compiling with the latest OpenWrt Attitude Adjustment 12.09 revision

The OpenWrt SDK provided by Compex is based on Attitude Adjustment 12.09 revision 36088, which does not contain several bugfixes and repository changes included in the following ones. It can be a good idea to build OpenWrt from the last revision, still version Attitude Adjustment 12.09.

1) Follow steps 1 to 3 in the Standard Compilation section.

2) Check the latest revision number for OpenWrt. Go to https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset and get the last change/revision number (as of 23rd July 2014 it is 41811).

3) Edit the Makefile with your favourite text editor and replace this:

OWRT_DIST_SVN_REV = 36088

...

OWRT_PKGS_SVN_REV = 36089

with the latest revision:

OWRT_DIST_SVN_REV = 41811

...

OWRT_PKGS_SVN_REV = 41811

4) Check the latest revision number for LuCi. Go to http://svn.luci.subsignal.org and get the last revision number (as of 23rd July 2014 it is 10459).

5) Edit the Makefile with your favourite text editor and replace this:

FEEDS_LUCI_SVN_REV = 9656

with the latest revision:

FEEDS_LUCI_SVN_REV = 10459

Compiling from OpenWrt trunk

1) Get the OpenWrt trunk SDK for the WPJ342 from Compex: http://www.compex.com.sg/openwrtdownload.aspx

2) Save the OpenWrt SDK file to your working directory and extract it (as of 23rd July 2014, the latest version is sdk-r40719-b140527-ath10k.tar.bz2):

tar -xf sdk-r40719-b140527-ath10k.tar.bz2

3) Enter the newly created directory sdk-r40719-b140527-ath10k.

4) If you want to compile with the latest trunk revision, check the latest revision number for OpenWrt. Go to https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset and get the last change/revision number (as of 23rd July 2014 it is 41811). Edit the Makefile and replace this:

OWRT_DIST_SVN_REV = 40719

with:

OWRT_DIST_SVN_REV = 41811

5) Run make, or make V=99 for extra compilation verbosity:

make
