The firmware is also available pre-built. If things break during this build process you're on your own.
The HAH firmware is based upon the Inventel source distribution with quite a number of changes.
First you need to install the MIPS toolchain as root.
# mkdir /opt # cd /opt # wget http://www.dbzoo.com/_media/livebox/toolchains.tar.gz # tar zxf toolchains.tar.gz
As a normal user amend your .profile/.bashrc et al to include the following path
Make sure you have at least these packages installed on your linux distro:
$ apt-get install autoconf gcc make g++ libgh6-zlib-dev subversion pkgconfig flex curl-devel patch
$ yum install autoconf gcc make gcc-c++ zlib-devel subversion pkgconfig flex curl-devel patch
The HAH source code is held at the following location in a Subversion_(software) repository. Everybody has READ-ONLY access, writes are restricted.
$ svn checkout http://livebox-hah.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ livebox-hah-read-only
Building the firmware from the development trunk, this is the latest and greatest and possibly unstable. Once I get into the swing of things I'll branch a stable release. You will want to add the PATH set-up to your .bashrc
$ cd livebox-hah-read-only $ make
Now is a good time to go get yourself a cup of coffee as this takes a while.
As the cramfs image must be constructed with root permissions you will asked for the root password during the final stage of the process. So keep an eye out for the “password:“ prompt.
From the master Makefile this is the shell script called by the SU command if you want to check what its about to do. You'll find this in ./targets/buildFS
buildimage: $(KERNEL_DIR)/Image su --command="cd $(TARGETS_DIR); ./buildFS" cp $(KERNEL_DIR)/Image $(TARGET_FS)
When its finished you'll find two files in the images directory
