Description

I am trying to create a new firmware for my AP121 reference board, using the Image Creator.

When i failed, i asked in the forum about this; as there was no feedback and after i read something more about openwrt, this seems to be a bug to me, i might be wrong though.

I try to create an image, using the image creator, with a given profile
(make image PROFILE=AP121)

As i already did write into the forum, this is the corresponding link:
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=58600

What i did:


I did download the recent version from here:
http://downloads.openwrt.org/barrier_br … 64.tar.bz2

afterwords i did:
make image PROFILE=AP121
which returns some warnings:
Warning: /Software/openwrt/OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ar71xx_generic-for-linux-x86_64/build_dir/target-mips_34kc_uClibc-0.9.33.2/linux-ar71xx_generic/root.squashfs-64k is too big (> 1245184 bytes)

and i get an ar71xx folder with 10 files within bin directory
(pastebin: http://pastebin.com/PzjL9QrM )
files:
642 Jul 21 14:40 md5sums
2,2M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-root.squashfs

1,2M Jul 21 14:39 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux-lzma.elf

in order to reduce firmware size i followed these orders:
https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/obtain.firmware.generate#remove_useless_files_from_firmware

which returns:
Warning: /Software/openwrt/OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ar71xx_generic-for-linux-x86_64/build_dir/target-mips_34kc_uClibc-0.9.33.2/linux-ar71xx_generic/root.squashfs-64k is too big (> 1245184 bytes)

(pastebin: http://pastebin.com/Q5Cbpmh1 )

After that, i still have the ar71xx folder, with 10 files:
642 Jul 21 14:40 md5sums
2,2M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-root.squashfs
1,9M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-root.squashfs-64k
1,5M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-uImage-gzip.bin
1,1M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-uImage-lzma.bin
3,2M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux.bin
3,3M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux.elf
1,5M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux.gz
1,1M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux.lzma
1,2M Jul 21 14:40 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-vmlinux-lzma.elf

but no firmware file i could upload to my device.

Since i simply followed the instructions and used an already existing profile, I am not quite sure what to do ...


Due to me only foolowing a given procedure, I think, this might be a bug?

Thanks in advance!
