Building bootable image

The generic Bildroot installation creates bootable ramdiskfs image. buildroot.exigence

- I didn't need to install subversion. It was installed by default on my linux desktop.
- I run make menuconfig and choose
* Target System (Atheros71xx/…)
* Subtarget (Device with NAND flash …)
* Target Images → *ramdisk, *tar.gz
- Run make
- The image is in ./bin/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-nand-vmlinux-initramfs.elf
- You need to copy this image into your tftpboot directory.

Boot from network

I started the routerboard with NetBoot.

- Worked fine - remember to open the udp port 69 and high-ports (udp) in your firewall


Building tested on Attitude Adjustment 12.09-RC2. Everything later should work also. Currently no issues observed.
