The FMK does not support DIR300 type images of DD-WRT, sorry.

I finally managed to get the firmware mod kit to work after installing the zlibc and zlib1 packages in synaptic package manager. I found this out myself after not getting any help figuring out which packages were necessary other than the ones in the system requirements section of the instructions...

It was very frustrating as my Linux experience is very limited.

If the tools don't get built then it is not going to work and as you are getting that error I would suggest that you have to get that working first.

Good luck.
