This area is to show anyone who is interested how to compile their own image's for the dreambox 500. Because we will be using standard tuxbox-cvs commands you can also make dbox2 images with minor changes.

I have limited knowledge and only know the way I do things, this doesn't mean it is the only way so any input will be very welcome.

The room is open to anybody.

Please no talk about cams or magic files as the posts will be deleted.

There will be simple instructions so if you want you can literally copy and paste instructions though there will be info along the way so you can learn as you go if you so wish.

If you don't want to learn to compile then you will still be able to use the preconfigured linux to edit the squashfs (read only part) of the existing images.

hopefully within a few days you will have all the information to replicate the current dw version 2.1 (neutrino) images, I can't remember but I think all the files for dw versionb 1.6.2 (enigma) are on the preconfigured linux.

Top effort with this area. Hope to give it a go soon. Why are DM500 images a ro root image & a j2ffs /var? Is there a fully j2ffs image out there like the dbox commando images?

to broaden my horizons,just wondering will the image be compatible for the dm600 if i

It won't work for the dm600 but I can supply info for the dm600pvr.

You still need linux but you also need to have a larger disc image so you can't use vmware as it seems to have an 8gb limit, We used virtualbox to make the dm600pvr image with a 16gb disc image.


Only enigma images atm no neutrino yet for the dm600pvr :(
