From what I can tell it's already in the image. Just type links in the command line, press enter and it should work.


it says " -sh :links: not found "

Well try what was said before your post. If trying to run links still says command not found try running this: /usr/bin/links
/e

still not found.... T.T

is it because my rootfs is not mounted?

i have this message when starting:

" waiting 10 sec before mounting root device..
Ramdisk: ext2  filesystem found at block 0
Ramdisk: Loading 2061Kib (1disk) into ram disk.. done
VFS: mounted root (ext2 file system) on device 1:0

Welcome to buildroot
Buildroot login: root.... etc.... then i type /usr/bin/links.... still not found  "

Don't use a initrd! It's not needed and you can't save anything!
Use an USB-Stick as root fs!


so the usb should be in ext2? or fat?

If you use my kernel (which you should, as X is working), use ext4.
If you crash with ext2, it may become corrupt.

You use an initrd which gets loaded into ram.

Do the following: (/dev/sda = USB-Stick)
1. mkdir /tmp/mount
2. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda
3. mount /dev/sda /tmp/mount (ignore warnings)
4. tar -xvf rootfs.tar.bz2 -C /tmp/mount (The rootfs.tar.bz2 I posted before, download with `wget http://ritter-vogt.dyndns.biz/lowlevel/rootfs.tar.bz2`)
5. umount /tmp/mount
6. Enjoy!

Edit: You have to use my kernel, too.

Try opening it with the GUI unarchiver. If it also errors, you probably got your archive corrupted at some point along the way. If it extracts normally, just follow the instructions from there as if tar had worked.
