Selecting packages

To select which packages should be compiled into the firmware is through a special menu called Kconfig. To enter the Kconfig, standing in your projects root directory execute this command in the terminal:

make menuconfig

After executing this command you should see a view like in the picture below. Menuconfig main page v1.png

To move around in the Kconfig use the arrows on the keyboard, space bar to select or to unselect the package, and enter key to enter sub directories of packages.

Note: Do not unselect any package if you do not know what you are doing.

  • Packages have three markings:
    1. <*> - this symbol says that the package will be compiled an added to the firmware
    2. <M> - this symbol says that the package will be compiled but will not be added to the firmware
    3. < > - this symbols says that the package will not be compiled and will not be added to the firmware

  • By default all packages that were marked as to be compiled in the process, can be found separately from the firmware. Packages can be found in directory ~/RUT_X/openwrt-gpl-ipq40xx.Linux-x86_64/bin/packages/arm_cortex-a7_neon-vfpv4.

    This directory also has five sub directories. Packages are categorized in these directories by there type.
