jepler: I think something is wrong with dependencies
I modified rtapi_common.h and needed to make clean, make in order for hal stuff to contain the change
halcmd I think
roltek is now known as rayh_ontheroad
I got a bunch of goofy error messages while running the emc2-install.sh
going down for reboot to test the emc stuff here.
cradek: You around. Got a question about cvs on ubuntu.
Ray here. I've got ubuntu running with your stuff. EMC is good. I was looking to do an anon checkout.
so did apt-get install cvs
but it doesn't seem to recognize the anon checkout command.
I checked out in my name at sf and that went fine.
great system btw
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
when I try to configure
what's the error?
hmm, having some intermittent connection problems here, bear with me
you need to install the rest of the build environment
here's the easy way
edit /etc/apt/sources.list, copy the last line (dsplabs) and make it deb-src
so you have a deb and deb-source line, with everything else the same
now, sudo apt-get build-dep emc2
that tells apt to install everything needed to rebuild the emc2 deb, which is the same as what's needed to build the emc2 cvs
I found an emc2 dev in synaptic and grabbed it just now.
emc2-dev allows you to build GUIs like AXIS, it's not exactly what you want, but doesn't hurt
the thing you really want is apt-get build-dep emc2
Okay. I'll edit the sources.list
so the packaged emc2 ran fine?
Yes it ran great. This is a via 800 epia motherboard.
what did you think of the install, instructions, etc, on your first time through?
anything I need to clarify? (I haven't had much feedback about the instructions but I want to get them exactly right)
[01:37:41] <roltek> http://dsplabs.cs.upt.ro/emc2/dists/breezy/Release:
Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
Not bad at all. I'll comment more when I get back home.
is your line exactly like this?
okay wrong end of the line.
I forgot: sudo apt-get update - then - sudo apt-get build-dep emc2
that will get you the necessary compilers, libraries, everything
Great. That'll get this box going the way he wants.
I updated emc2-install.sh to add the deb-src as well
There is quite a bit different on the ubuntu but nothing that I can't get used to.
I think that emc2 package you installed is exactly the same as CVS head.
(I know it's exactly the same as CVS TESTING)
Okay. How do I start a terminal from a file browser?
darn. that is one handy feature of kde
I don't see anything like that on the menus
I didn't either.
running make now. config seemed to complete okay.
with the revised make system do we need to worry about make clean after a cvs up?
that's still a good idea
Thanks again for all your help.
