I am trying to build OpenWRT for this router
I read that this Soc is unsupported but then I found this github.
where Realtec RTL8197D generic board could be chosen in menuconfig. So I decided to give it a try.
I faced a few problems with missing libraries, misplaced headers etc which I managed to circumvent eventually.
Unfortunately, when I got to the stage where system image is being written (as far as I understand) I faced an error which I can't fix.

Neither I nor Google know what tbs_dlink is.
Can you advise me - what should I do to build an image for my router?
