You need a few things to be able to build the Community-Firmware
A Linux-System with at least 20 GB free hard disk space (as well as a fast CPU and a fast internet connection)
(The following how-to is based on Ubuntu, but should work on other distributions as well).
A microSD-card on which the ftcommunity-TXT-firmware can be installed. Any SD(HC) microSD-Card should work!
(Cards with other technical specifications (eg. microSD-XC) have not been tested). To be safe it is recommended to use a microSD(HC)-Card with 32GB or less.
As the ftcommunity-TXT-firmware itself only uses as little as 200MB of cardspace, even a 2GB-card is more than sufficient.
- A ssh-client to connect to the TXT:
- on Windows PuTTY
- on iOS eg. “Serverauditor” could be used
- A network connection to the TXT:
- USB-based network connection: IP 192.168.7.2
- WLAN connection: IP 192.168.8.2
- WLAN might need to be switched on first: “Settings” -> “Network” -> WLAN Setup
- in this mode, the TXT serves as an access point
- the network SSID is the name of the TXT displayed on the main screen
- the WPA-Key can be found in the menu “Settings” -> “Network” -> WLAN Setup
- BT-based network connection IP 192.168.9.2
- BT needs to be switched on first: “Settings” -> “Network”
