Build An initramfs

An initramfs is a kernel with an include filesystem that can be use directly from uboot with clunc. You can use miniroot or buildroot to build an initramfs.

MiniRoot

About

Miniroot is intended to be a simple solution to build and/or develop a minimal system based on Linux and BusyBox. The system is “makefile-oriented” with few shell scripts. Its main goal is to be human readable.

How to

The project is available on git :

  git clone git://lacie-nas.org/miniroot.git    

Customisations are done by writing your own config.mk (see doc/ directory).

The list of relevant variables can be found in headers of .mk files or in the main Makefile.

BuildRoot

About

Buildroot is a set of Makefiles that makes it easy to generate a complete Linux system. Buildroot is a project quite bigger than miniroot but have higher capabilities.

How to

The project is available on :

   http://buildroot.uclibc.org/

Buildroot has a nice configuration tool similar to the one you can find in the Linux kernel. The configuration assistant can be run with :

   make menuconfig
