Development Environment

Get the needed software

In a Debian based distributions (like Ubuntu), a set of packages are needed, you should install them:

aptitude install \
git subversion zlib1g-dev gawk flex unzip bzip2 gettext build-essential \
libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev binutils cpp psmisc linux-headers-$(uname -r) docbook-to-man

Get the code and compile

  • Get the qMp firmware generator using git:
    git clone git:// qmpfw
  • Then enter to source directory:
    cd qmpfw
  • [Recomended] Do a checkout specifying the branch testing:
    make .checkout_qmp QMP_GIT_BRANCH=testing
  • And compile it specifying the target:
    make build T=alix

You can find available targets by executing:

make list_targets

If you have more than one core in your computer you can use J=N:

make build T=alix J=4

After that, you will find the images ready to install in your devices inside directory images/
