What is LBdistro?

LBdistro is an improvement on buildrom to let user customize what binaries will be at final ROM.

How to getting started?

First you need download the toolchain used to compile some LBdistro packages:

wget http://lbdistro.sourceforge.net/tools/toolchain.tar.bz2

Extract it to /usr/local:

tar jxvf toolchain.tar.bz2 -C /usr/local
<pre>

Get last LBdistro from SVN repository:
<pre>
svn co https://lbdistro.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/lbdistro/trunk LBdistro

After that issue:

cd LBdistro
make menuconfig
make

For now only QEMU compilation is generating ROM, but other boards will be added after Kdrive and application works.

Known problems

There is some problems when compiling it on Debian and others (on Ubuntu 6.06 it works fine). This problem will be fixed ASAP.

In my system I need change the command "lzma e" to "lzma -z" to compress payload
