mkimage: command not found


I am unable to build the firmware for the Netgear 3500L router.

The build process exits with the error that "mkimage" command was not found.

Anyone have idea from where we can install mkimage?


d vmlinux.bin vmlinux.uimage && \
        /root/samknows/firmware/wnr3500-v1.0.15/wnr3500/tools/lzma e vmlinux.uimage ap8x-kernel && mv ap8x-kernel /root/samknows/firmware/wnr3500-v1.0.15/wnr3500/target && \
        rm -f vmlinux.bin && rm -f vmlinux.uimage
/bin/sh: line 1: mkimage: command not found

I believe you need to get the mkimage utility from uBoot.
If you google it you should see quite a few examples.
