Building linux for atngw100 from buildroot

You can build linux system for ur atngw100 easily by using buildroot. There are many suppliers for buildroot
1) Atmel beta release (http://www.atmel.no/buildroot/)
2) From buildroot site (http://buildroot.uclibc.org/)
3) Some guy (http://code.google.com/p/buildroot/) mentioned in http://avr32linux.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/DevelopmentTools
I have build my system from the 3rd buildroot.
svn checkout http://buildroot.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ buildroot-avr32

make atngw100_defconfig
make menuconfig

u can also use atngw100_expanded_defconfig or atngw100-base_defconfig instead of atngw100_defconfig; these add more options like lcd driver,keyboard driver, mouse driver, X-windows etc ...... if u have one attached to ur atngw100. have a look at this "buildroot-avr32/target/device/Atmel" folder; there u will find for what all devices u can build the buildroot.

I have few problems while building for atngw100_expanded_defconfig, but fortunately they were easy to solve. :D.

PS: Im yet to get my board, i was just playing around with buildroot and OE till i comes.
