Howto build

Fetch sources

Check out the ZRouter source code with Mercurial hg or by fetching the latest ZRouter sources (as zip)

For this tutorial we expect you check out / unpack the sources to /projects/ZRouter/zrouter.

For now you also need our patched FreeBSD sources. We work on getting this patches back to official FreeBSD-HEAD, so one day this step will be obsolete.

Get it via Mercurial or by fetching ZRouter's patched FreeBSD sources

For this tutorial we expect you check out / unpack the modified FreeBSD sources to /projects/ZRouter/FreeBSD.


For this tutorial we expect you want to build a firmware for a device from vendor D-Link, the model is DIR-320 (see Supported devices).

As root do:

cd /projects/ZRouter/zrouter
make FREEBSD_SRC_TREE=/projects/ZRouter/FreeBSD/head TARGET_PAIR=D-Link/DIR-320

Customize the build

You can create the file Makefile.local.opts in your ZRouter's home with predefined variables, so you can skip to specify them with every make run:

e.g. /projects/ZRouter/zrouter/Makefile.local.opts


# override default /usr/obj


Now just run make.
