we're all sick of having to do all the steps to build a flash image,
right? Well, thanks to OLPC, there is a new tool: buildrom.
This tool is designed to build a 1M flash image including linuxbios,
kernel, and an initrd with busybox tools.
Right now, it only works for OLPC, but that should not hold you back.
To get it, just svn co svn://linuxbios.org/buildrom/buildrom-devel
and see how you can set vendor, board, and config file in the top-level
This is a work in progress. What I want to do over time is have a config
directory such that you can pull down buildrom, set a few variables for
mainboard etc., and in short time have a rom image automagically.
take a look
