Topic: Adding exFat support

Prerequisites:
- You must have checked out the OpenWrt build-system first.
- The toplevel build dir (TOPDIR) in this howto is ~/trunk

1) Clone the feeds file

cp -fpR feeds.conf.default feeds.conf

2) Add our custom feed

echo "src-link custom ../myfeed" >> feeds.conf

3) Get the Makefiles to add exFat support

mkdir -p myfeed/exfat/files
wget -O myfeed/exfat/Makefile http://enduser.subsignal.org/~trondah/tree/myfeed/exfat/Makefile
wget -O myfeed/exfat/files/Makefile http://enduser.subsignal.org/~trondah/tree/myfeed/exfat/files/Makefile

4) Install our custom feed and the exfat package

./scripts/feeds install -p custom
./scripts/feeds update custom -i
./scripts/feeds install exfat

5) Build exFat support into the image

mkdir -p ~/.openwrt
cat > ~/.openwrt/defconfig <<EOF
CONFIG_PACKAGE_exfat=y
CONFIG_PACKAGE_exfat-utils=y
EOF

6) rebuild OpenWrt

make defconfig
make V=s

Result:

ll -h bin/ar71xx/packages/ex*
-rw-r--r-- 1 openwrt openwrt 20K Jul 16 16:31 bin/ar71xx/packages/exfat-utils_r287-1_ar71xx.ipk

Re: Adding exFat support

The site enduser.subsignal.org is down. Anyone got an alternate location for these Makefiles?

Re: Adding exFat support

Any word on this?

Re: Adding exFat support

@sindhus, Not sure what you are looking for...

There is a kmod-fs-exfat package at this point.   

I was trying to get it working on a 64gb micro-SD card that came formatted that way, but ultimatly gave up.  You may find some answers in this post.
