Its been some weeks since I got my hands on the RT5350F board from Olimex. I started building the openwrt for the board and it throwed some error and then put it to the shelf, then I started again this time and resolved the issues to build the image. In addition to that I also included python to the image.
I followed this link https://www.olimex.com/wiki/RT5350F-OLinuXino#Building_OpenWRT to build the openwrt.
mkdir openwrt cd openwrt git clone https://github.com/OLIMEX/openwrt -b rt5350f cd openwrt make
This should normally fetch you the freshly built opewrt image for the RT5350F board.
But due to some error it was not. So I used this command to know what error it was.
This gave me the information that it was unable to download a version openssl package from the link
Then I decided to download the package manually from another source.
cd dl wget ftp://ftp.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.2a.tar.gz cd .. make V=s
I was trying to add python to the image, but in the menuconfig there was no option to select python. After some
googling I found the solution to add python to the openwrt image.
$scripts/feeds update $scripts/feeds install python $make menuconfig # Select python $make
Everything well smooth and I got the image at this location
The image I built is 8.6 MB but the flash size is 8MB So I need to prune the image to fit.
I will explain about flashing and other means of booting the board in my next blogs.
