    165 To support OpenWrt for the Gateworks products, we maintain a patchset that is generic to all our standard product families.
    166 
    167 The below instructions are primarily for Newport and Ventana and Laguna.
    168

    170921. Getting Source Code:
    17193 * There are multiple code branches (see above for recommended branch per product), please checkout the one you prefer with the following commands:
     
    181103  - using a (per target) Gateworks provided .config file
    182104  - producing JTAG binary images compatible with the Gateworks JTAG dongle
    183  * Once the branch has been checked out from the ​Gateworks GitHub account, you are ready to build. The Gateworks Makefile provides the following targets:
    184   - all : Built imx6 and cns3xxx targets.
     105 * Once the branch has been checked out from the ​Gateworks !GitHub account, you are ready to build. The Gateworks Makefile provides the following targets:
     106  - all : Build both Newport (octeontx) and Ventana (imx6)
    185107  - octeontx : build BSP for the octeontx target (Newport product family)
    186108  - imx6 : build BSP for the imx6 target (Ventana product family)
    187   - cns3xxx : build BSP for the cns3xxx target (Laguna product family)
    188   - images : build binary flash images (suitable for JTAG flashing) for supported product families (Ventana / Laguna).
     109  - images : build binary flash images (suitable for JTAG flashing) for supported product families
    189110  - dirclean : remove all downloaded and built directories
    190   - In order to build the octeontx target for the Newport product family, the following steps would occur:
     111  - Examples:
     112   - In order to build the octeontx target for the Newport product family, the following steps would occur:
    191113{{{#!bash
    192114# Build the octeontx target, using the configuration from gateworks/configs/octeontx/.config.
     
    194116make -C gateworks/ octeontx
    195117}}}
    196   - In order to build the imx6 target for the Ventana product family, the following steps would occur:
     118   - In order to build the imx6 target for the Ventana product family, the following steps would occur:
    197119{{{#!bash
    198120# Build the imx6 target, using the configuration from gateworks/configs/imx6/.config.
     
    200122make -C gateworks/ imx6
    201123}}}
    202 
    203124  - The build process will take some time depending on your Internet connection and host system. On an Intel Quad Core @ 3.10GHz the build takes a couple of hours to build all product families and takes appx 15GB of disk space.

    220141== Building JTAG Binary File ==
    221 Creating JTAG Binaries to flash with the GW16042 is easily done with the targets in the makefile within the gateworks directory:
    222 {{{#!bash
    223 # Make a 'jtagable' images for Ventana NAND FLASH
    224 make -C gateworks/ images/ventana
    225 
    226 # Make both Ventana and Laguna 'jtagable' images
    227 make -C gateworks/ images
    228 }}}
    229  * The resulting flash firmware image will be {{{gateworks/images/}}}.
    230 
     142For the Gateworks 20.06 BSP JTAG binaries are built for Ventana NAND Flash:
     143 * gateworks/images/ventana_large.bin
     144 * gateworks/images/ventana_normal.bin
