Building OpenWrt Embedded Linux in a Virtual Machine

Synopsis:  Embedded system software developers are asked to develop board support software which customizes the hardware design for their specific application.  This white paper gives embedded system software developers step by step instructions on how to set up a Linux Virtual Machine (VM) development environment and build an OpenWrt Board Support Package (BSP).  OpenWrt is an open source, embedded Linux distribution that has been optimized for networking applications.  It provides a fully writable file system with package management, which allows embedded system developers to customize their embedded networking solution through the use of packages targeted for their specific application.
