If you’d like to create images from Git, you can try one of the new Makefiles.
Makefile-opendreambox-1.5 is the successor of the old monotone based
Makefile-opendreambox builds from a much newer branch, of which opendreambox 1.6 will become a spin-off once a stable state is reached. Today it won’t even finish an image, but you’re invited to test it early and to report any problems occuring in your build environment, so we can fix them for you.
One notable thing is that the directory layout changed to create one subdirectory per platform and a shared directory for bitbake and the sources. If you’d like to keep the old directory structure for version 1.5, to upgrade without rebuilding everything, then you can set
UPGRADE_FROM_MONOTONE=1 in the Makefile. But don’t forget to move away your monotone repository.
If you’re going to make commits to your new Git-repository, then you should definitely edit
GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL, because this information will be kept in the commit history forever. Otherwise Git will create a mail adress from your local username and hostname.
The command to build an image has been unchanged:
make -f Makefile-opendreambox-1.5 image
[Jan. 12, 2009: Updated Makefiles to work with old versions of Git (1.4.x)]
[Jan. 15, 2009: Updated Makefile-opendreambox to use bitbake 1.8.12 to fix problems with some versions of Git]
