12 package/feeds/.
13
14 Use "make menuconfig" to configure your image.
15
16 Simply running "make" will build your firmware.
17 It will download all sources, build the cross-compile toolchain,
18 the kernel and all choosen applications.
19
20 You can use "scripts/flashing/flash.sh" for remotely updating your embedded
21 system via tftp.

23 The OpenWrt system is documented in docs/. You will need a LaTeX distribution
24 and the tex4ht package to build the documentation. Type "make -C docs/" to build it.

26 To build your own firmware you need to have access to a Linux, BSD or MacOSX system
27 (case-sensitive filesystem required). Cygwin will not be supported because of
28 the lack of case sensitiveness in the file system.
