I have very limited knowledge of Linux ... Let's just say if I can't find a step-by-step.. Well, I'm not able..
Sometimes even with one I still can't do it..

Like now..
My switch is down and Allied wants a service contract to send me a copy of the OE firmware that it came with..

But I have an open source builder for most all their stuff !!!! I just can't figure out why its not working..
It is set up to basically to be a one-command build.
But I get error after error as I go about fixing its issue..
I have added links to the network pkg for the x510.. below and the builder and my old firmware (that gives me "bad release header") and won't install
If someone could help me with it I would be grateful,
Thanks in advance, Ken
(the how-to I got with it.. )
This is a basic build howto.
-----------------------------

The enclosed tarball contains:
- chroot, this provides the toolchain
- buildsys, a tool for building a set of packages
- the cached download directory (dl) that buildsys usually generates
(with all the GPL code and some BSD code too).
- The wrapper scripts necessary for building.
- this README.txt

To build the main release
-------------------------

1] build requirements
1.1] to get a complete replica of an official release you will need
to scp or tftp "/pkg/network*.pkg" from your switch and place it into
the dl directory (this is our proprietary package (squashfs image)
containing the switch driver, protocols etc...).
To get access to this file you will need to create a shell script
on the device and activate it:
awplus#edit copy.sh
#insert the following text
cp /pkg/*.pkg /flash/

#Activate the script. This will copy the package to the flash directory
# (Ensure you have ample space left on your device)
awplus#activate copy.sh

Use your preferred method to copy the file off the switch.

1.2] Chroot

The build is done in a gentoo chroot. The chroot is provided as a
.deb package located at chroot/awplus-chroot6_20150223-1atl2_all.deb

On debian based systems, this can just be installed. If your Linux
system is not debian based, you can still install the chroot
manually using the following steps:

# Create a temporary working directory
$ mkdir tmpchroot
$ cd tmpchroot

# Extract the debian package into the temporary directory
$ ar x path/awplus-chroot6_20150223-1atl2_all.deb
# ls will show a control.tar.* and data.tar.gz

# Install the chroot. This will extract the data to /chroot/20170112d
$ sudo tar -C / -xSpf tmpchroot/data.tar.*

# Run the post-install script.
$ tar -zxf control.tar.gz ./postinst
$ sudo bash postinst

# Remove the temporary working directory
$ cd ..
$ rm -rf tmpchroot

Be careful not to manually delete the installed chroot as it mounts
your home directory inside when doing builds, so there is a danger
that you will accidentally erase your home directory. Make sure any
mounted directories are unmounted first.

1.3] Userchroot

# Build userchroot which allows using a chroot without being the root user:
$ cd scripts
$ gcc -o userchroot userchroot.c

# The chroot.py scripts expect userchroot to live in /usr/bin
$ sudo cp userchroot /usr/bin/

# Give userchroot suid privileges to allow it to work
$ sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/userchroot

NOTE:
Toolchain patches and build options are in the chroot tarball, under
/chroot/20170112d/usr/local/portage
sys-libs/uclibc
sys-devel/binutils
sys-devel/gcc
sys-devel/gdb
sys-devel/insight
sys-kernel/linux-headers

NOTE: 20170112d is the date of the portage release file that the
chroot was created from.

1.4 Build scripts.
The scripts in the scripts directory are used to kick off the
build process. They need to be somewhere in your path.
Alternatively you can add the scripts directory to your path.

1.5 tftpboot directory
The build process attempts to mount the directory /tftpboot inside
the chroot to copy the release output to. If this directory doesn't
exist, you will need to create it.
$ sudo mkdir /tftpboot
$ sudo chmod a+rwx /tftpboot

2]

cd into the buildsys directory
buildsys x510 -- network=import

This should give you a file called "x510-5.4.8-$(whoami).rel"
which is a fully fledged release.

For other platforms, replace x510 with the name of the platform.
The names required to build various platforms can be derived from
the names of the .lua files in the root of the buildsys directory.

Have fun!

Well, I seem to be getting further..
I was getting NOWHERE with Ubuntu or Mint..
I was just getting denied and unfound files left and right...
So I went RedHat ??? (Centos)
That actually worked it starts the build!!!
Now it seems i have a few more bugs to fix ..
I sure could use some help for someone who at LEAST knows a little more than I do...
Here is where I am at now..
host,protobuf-c: is referring to a url that is either linked wrong or outdated
something again I will have to learn quickly..
Here you can see my progress and my ignorance lol

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

Congratulations. The error in the first post made me wonder if it just needed a different distro, as it was a release error. I didn't want to speculate and know nothing about the application.

I will point out that any admin/mod can retrieve your edited post. I'm 100% positive that this will never be a concern, but we can see your edited content. For security reasons, edits are retained. But, I can look at your edit and see your password.

It will make your thread different, but I can completely remove that post for you, putting it in a state where it can't be retrieved by anyone. Or not... It's up to you. If you don't share passwords, you are even less at risk. I'm positive nobody who can see that will act on it, but I think you should know about this.

Oh, wait... I misread and thought you had completed it properly. And, my only speculation was that it may need a different distro (or to edit the scripts and change the release information).

With further looking, it looks like it's looking for a .tar file. You could check that directory and see if there's a .tar file there. It may also be a bug/error and you can try to contact the authors of the software. They're receptive and helpful - in my experiences.

I'm ok with it I only use that password in things I don't plan on keeping it is a goto password for VM OS's I use.. and please speculate!! I really need the help.. The only CL I ever learned well was Dos.. Linux CL is overwhelming.. LOL

I saw that also I think it is referring to the network pkg (tar) I pulled it from the Backup firmware .rel not from the switch itself hope that is fixable.. I really need this to work.. it's a 52 port POE switch I can't afford a new one... or the 1000 dollor service contract from allied telesis just to get some firmware!! The sad part is I broke it with a NAND flash to erase all command. My finger was milliseconds behind my brain.. and somehow my backup gives me A "Release header corrupt" which seems to be for the vmlinux.bin in the squashfs.. it is the part of the fs I can't open correctly.. I can "dump it" but My knowlage of it leaves me unable to rebuild it as of yet... The Vmlinux.bin seems to be the part of the firmware that sets up the flash rebuild process.. rewriting the partitions and rewrites the os files..)

To whomever reads this:
I will do my best to log what works and what does not. as I attempt to learn it myself..
The builder creates one of the last firmwares (before) Allied moved the licensing from the hardware to the cloud and forced a subscription to have any use of their switches..
It builds firmware for almost all Allied Telesis Enterprise switches to date.
AT-SBx81CFC960 (SwitchBlade x8100 series), SwitchBlade x908 GEN2
CenterCOM x950 / x930 / x550 / x530 / x530L / x510 / x510DP / x320 / x310 / x230 / x230L / x220 series
CentreCOM Secure HUB SH310 / SH230 / XS900MX / GS980MX / GS980EM / GS980M / FS980M series
CentreCOM IE340 / IE340L / IE200 / IE210L series
AT-AR4050S, AT-AR3050S, AT-AR2050V, AT-AR2010V, AT-AR1050V
If I am successful I will create a working single-line command build in Virtual Machine to save others from this hassle..
If I fail.. at least you'll have the builder to try yourself.
Believe it or not, there are NO publicly available copies of these firmwares anywhere..
The only proprietary part of the firmware is in the network pkg which you will need from your switch..
I hope this post finds its way to extend the life of these +15,000 dollar switches in the public sector as they reach their EOL on the enterprise market.

Well, I've been down a few more dead-end roads.. I am sure Is is me and my inability to grasp the linux CL .. Jeez what were these PPL think'n when they came up with this file system.. I mean even trying to come to grips with the fact that usr/"user"/desktop isn't the path to the Desktop??? it's local /share/ or something I am lost!! LOL
DOS was a lot more straightforward!!!

I did have a great moment!!! I found a copy of my f/w on a one-drive backup that it pulled from my desktop, I hated that about one drive that's why I started killing on all my windows machines!!! But I guess I should thank Bill !!
So it ran and it gave me an error I never saw before. Ive seen MANY.!.!. LOL

It stopped and said: Your machine has no personality therefore it can not boot.. I was like what the???

So come to find out it has a dual personality??? I and I starting not to like either one of them!!

All jokes aside I'm screwed now... Allied is gonna be the only one to can fix that right??

So I thought .....so I thought... I don't give up easily... I went in search of a personality fixer ... and like everything else about Allied, I get only glimpses of things... But just enough to remind me about what this F/W build had said in the how-to..

"Full-fledged," it said...and that got me think'n
I'm think'n to myself no way...
But ,

let me see..

I looked
and I FOUND this...

"full fledged," it said..

and it wasn't hyped!!

So I am back to try'n again!!!! I really could use some help.. I think all My Issues are somehow in the path and most likely the directory I run it from The how-to I for someone more fluent in linux's needs.. Hell I can even set up the path .. I have to brute-force my root hammer and use /bin to get where I have ...

Well I tried and I tried, But it was just beyond me.. I basically read every script and command the build had in it.. Yet I just couldn't get it to finish vast parts of it...
So I just did it by hand..
I took what I could get and Frankenstein'd it ..
I have no clue how I managed it

But here SHE LIVES AGAIN!!!!

epi3mk - Make an EPI3 block

Usage:
epi3mk [Serial] [Mfg] [Year] [Month] [BoardID] [PCBRev] [MAC] [844Bom] [OEM] [HW ModLevel]

Standard command usage:

epi3mk 123456789 A 06 06 270 X2 001122334455 A U 1

The 'Serial' parameter is required but ignored. The only case where this paramet er is observed is when the
personality area is blank (factory first program).

If a parameter is specified as a dash '-' character, then the value is copied fr om the last valid personality.
There is no need to insert the '-' character in place of values after any of tho se you wish to modify.
For example, the command:

epi3mk - - - - 270

Will make a new personality, with all attributes unchanged apart from the specif ied BoardID.
