Installation Of Axis Developer Board/ Device Server SDK

version 2.10

(excerpts from INSTALL file of the package)

Download the install package

Download the install package *devboard-R2_10.tar.gz* from http://www.axis.com/products/dev_sdk/download_dist.php. The package contains among other things, The configure script for installing the software distribution or download the SDK from here: devboard-R2_10.tar.gz .

Extract files

Extract the tar file
tar zxvf devboard-R2_10.tar.gz .

Run configure script

Enter the newly created *devboard-R2_10* directory and run the configure script. This will download and install the tools and source code needed to configure the software distribution.

./configure

If asked which product to use, select default, unless you really know it better.

The next question deals with if you would like to configure the product or keep to the default configuration. In most cases, it is recommended to configure the software distribution since the default configuration only includes a subset of all available packages. By entering 'y' the selection of packages can be configured before the packages are installed.

Configuration and building of the firmware

Configuration of the software distribution

To select which packages to include in the firmware, change the configuration by running 'make' with any of the configuration targets 'menuconfig', 'xconfig' or 'config'. This will bring up a configuration utility that enables you to generate a custom configuration. The recommended method to use is 'make menuconfig', which will bring up a graphical menu in your shell. The menu is categorically organized, which makes the selection of packages fairly easy and logical. 'make xconfig' is an X windows based application that works in a similar manner as 'menuconfig'. 'make config' is text based and will traverse through all configuration options one at a time.

make menuconfig or make xconfig or make config

Use your preferred method and configure the software distribution according to your needs. Don't forget to save the configuration when prompted before exiting the configuration utility.

Run the configure script to install the packages required by the configuration. The configure script will also generate the top-level Makefile that is used in the next step.

./configure

Build the firmware image

Your software distribution should now be correctly installed and it's now time to build the firmware images. Run 'make', get a cup of coffee, and sit back and wait for the firmware image process to finish.

make

At last you have to set the environment variables. Type . ./init_env . You have to do this each time you want to use the SDK.

For more information about installing the SDK, just look at the INSTALL file in the created devboard-R2_01 folder or visit the Axis homepage on http://www.axis.com/products/dev .
