MTD (Memory Technology Devices) Tools

The current version of the ELDK does not include all tools provided by the MTD package. For example, you might find that the mkfs.jffs2 tool is missing. If you want to create a JFFS2 target filesystem on your development host you have to download and build the tool yourself:

  1. Download the MTD tools from the public CVS server:
    bash$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.infradead.org:/home/cvs login
    Logging in to :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.infradead.org:2401/home/cvs
    CVS password: anoncvs
    bash$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.infradead.org:/home/cvs co -P mtd
    cvs server: Updating mtd
    ...
    
  2. Build the mkfs.jffs2 tool:
    bash$ cd mtd/util
    bash$ make mkfs.jffs2
    ...
