Installing the OpenZipIt Buildroot

WARNING! Buildroot-zipit is deceptively small! During the build process, it will download about 76 megabytes of files. A build on my Athon 3.3GHz, 1Meg SDRAM system takes about 24 minutes while using a 7Mb/s cable modem to download the files. On a Pentium-III system, expect it to take several hours (depending on your RAM, CPU and the speed of your Internet connection).

     The total size of the completed build is 933 megabytes.


Download http://www.openzipit.org/Z1Develop/files/buildroot-zipit-1.2.tar.bz2

You will need to make sure you have wget and bison installed on your system. Make sure you have about 1gb of space available for this install.

Extract the file.
# tar -jxvf buildroot-zipit-1.2.tar.bz2
# cd buildroot-zipit-1.2
# make
run make a 2nd time to begin compiling
# make
Note: you should get an error that it cant find files. They've moved.
# cd dl
Now we need to download all the files that have moved. Make sure you have wget installed.
There is approximately 80mb of files to download.
# wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/uclibc/toolchain/linux-libc-headers-2.4.27.tar.bz2
# wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/hdparm/hdparm/hdparm-6.5.tar.gz?use_mirror=iweb
# wget http://www.signal42.com/mirrors/sudo_ftp/sudo-1.6.8p9.tar.gz
# wget http://www.openzipit.org/Z1Develop/files/buildroot-zipit-binaries-1.2.tar.gz
# wget http://www.openzipit.org/Z1Develop/files/zipit-loader-1.2.tar.bz2
# wget http://www.openzipit.org/Z1Develop/files/zipit-utils-1.0.tar.bz2
# wget ftp://ftp.eenet.ee/pub/FreeBSD/distfiles/fakeroot_1.5.8.tar.gz
# wget ftp://ftp.uni-frankfurt.de/pub/Mirrors2/gentoo.org/distfiles/genext2fs_1.3.orig.tar.gz
Run make a 3rd time, and in 20min to a few hours it should successfully compile.
# make
Once you are sure the build system is working, you can go and modify whatever you want.
Enjoy.
