Gargoyle Git Source Builds

Postby Gingernut » Sat Jun 11, 2011 5:19 am

If users are interested I've compiled the latest Gargoyle/OpenWRT sources for the ar71xx target.

I've uploaded the compiles of the most popular router models and will organize them into Gargoyle source date/OpenWRT changeset folders for easy reference here:

Be aware that they are experimental builds based on updates from source that are not fully tested.

Helping out with the builds!

All builds should be available now.

Good on U DoesItMatter, it seems to take forever to compile Gargoyle ;) .

BTW did you use the latest OpenWRT source, 27191 or the same one Eric last bumped to, 27148?

Thanks

I just clone the newest GIT and run the MAKE command.

How can I bump it up to the latest OpenWRT source?

And yea, I have a dedicated laptop I don't use - that I compile it on.
I just let it run overnight!

You have to edit the full-build.sh before issuing the make command.

Near the top you'll see these lines:

branch_name="backfire"
rnum=27148

rnum is revision number, you can either leave it blank (rnum=) and it will download the latest OpenWRT changeset or use the changeset revision number you desire.

You can see them at https://dev.openwrt.org/timeline

Take care

Ahh - good to know. Found it and edited.

Re-compiling a whole new set.

Looks like its Gargoyle revision 2002, Backfire revision 27220

Leaving the laptop to compile overnight so should be able
to post up the new set of binaries sometime on Sunday.

Gingernut,

How do you cleanup or re-fetch new sources?

What I've done is just delete the "gargoyle.git" folder,
clone the gargoyle git fresh, and then run make again.

Is this the best way or is there a way to update so that I don't
have to re-download everything each time?

I haven't compiled many but I believe it's:

cd to gargoyle folder and type:

git fetch

this will download only the changes made to git

when it's finished, should be very quick, you have to recheckout the master branch, but I'm not totally sure, type:

git checkout master

Take care

Hey, I notice people are interested in getting builds from the latest up-to-date source.

I am thinking of introducing a "Nightly" build in addition to the experimental/stable releases. Old nightly builds wouldn't be stored, and there would be no guarantee that the build is at all stable or completely brick your router, just that it is from the very latest source, rebuilt every 24 hours.

Would people be interested in this? I'm just a little worried that I'll make a major change, someone will download a nightly image and it will crash their router, leaving them somewhat unhappy...

I think it's a good idea, thanks Eric.

We all take some risks flashing new builds as not all targets have been fully tested.

I'd say if you don't know how to recover your router don't venture into nightly builds.

Take care
