Directory Structure

  • dl

This directory contains the downloaded source files for all the packages you have selected to build. If for some reason you think a download was corrupt you can delete it from here.

Buildroot documentation, not often very useful.

  • package

This directory contains all the packages available in the buildroot package menu.

  • target

The target directory contains architecture specific configuration and scripts to build the filesystem image.
