image with packages included *before* burning?
- Sorry - new user questions.
I have built an OpenWRT image for my Slug - it works - and I have
installed various ipackages later.
I believe that you can install the extra packages into the .bin image
file *before* loading it into the slug and so make a custom image for
your own needs.
But I do not see anywhere in "make menuconfig" where I can add
packages like "Samba" "i2c tools" etc.
Could someone please say how to do this (an example would be helpful)
- or say where I can find a simple explanation?
Even if all the packages can be loaded in a single install file I
still need to add my own configs etc. So when it comes to loading a
new slug you have to do it all over again. Is there any way to take
the contents of a working Slug and create a single .bin install file
that can be used as a full backup and then used to load a virgin Slug
with all my customised tweaks?
Or perhaps I should boot from an external drive and keep a copy of
that plus a minimal .bin file for the Slug internal Flash?
