#1317 closed enhancement (fixed)

add e1000 NIC support and the creation of VMware x86-2.6 images (patches included)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

To build the VMware images:

  • Checkout Kamikaze buildroot. Apply the two patches.
  • select 'Target System (X86 [2.6])'
  • select 'Target Profile (VMware image)'
  1. requires qemu-img installed to convert openwrt-x86-2.6-ext2.image to openwrt-x86-2.6-ext2.vmdk
  1. 'define Profile/vmware/Description' is not working
  1. 'Target Profile' 'VMware image' automatically selects kmod-e1000 (required for networking)
  1. to change die image size go to 'Target Images' -> 'Filesystem part size (in MB)' in menuconfig
  1. openwrt.vmx points only to openwrt-x86-2.6-ext2.vmdk (for JFFS2 and SquashFS you have to manually edit the VMX file)
  1. maybe someone, nbd? (with better buildroot knowledge) can enable VGA output in the kernel config instead of redirecting every output to the serial console (only for VMware image, not for generell x86-2.6)
