At work we are testing Alix.6f2 board and one thing to test id the ability to run OpenWrt, and in fact it runs it. I leave here how to install this distribution on Alix.6f2 boards.
- Download the combined image of OpenWrt for x86 which includes a MBR.
- Extract the image:
- Connect the CompactFlash ton a memory reader and according to how the device is was mapped (in my case/dev/sdb) copy the image to that partition:
dd if=openwrt-x86-generic-combined-ext2.img of=/dev/sdb 107439+0 records in 107439+0 records out 55008768 bytes (55 MB) copied, 25.5215 s, 2.2 MB/s
- Connect the CompactFlash to Alix.6f2 board and boot the system.
Repartitiong the image
OpenWrt image sizes 55 MB, so is a godd idea to resize the partition to use the remain space.
