#emc-devel | Logs for 2006-02-16

[00:03:25] <alex_joni> jepler: I think something is wrong with dependencies
[00:03:46] <alex_joni> I modified rtapi_common.h and needed to make clean, make in order for hal stuff to contain the change
[00:03:51] <alex_joni> halcmd I think
[00:43:46] <roltek> roltek is now known as rayh_ontheroad
[00:43:54] <rayh_ontheroad> Hi guys
[00:45:02] <rayh_ontheroad> I got a bunch of goofy error messages while running the emc2-install.sh
[00:47:12] <rayh_ontheroad> going down for reboot to test the emc stuff here.
[01:16:27] <roltek> cradek: You around. Got a question about cvs on ubuntu.
[01:18:40] <cradek> yes
[01:21:35] <roltek> Ray here. I've got ubuntu running with your stuff. EMC is good. I was looking to do an anon checkout.
[01:21:43] <cradek> great
[01:21:44] <roltek> so did apt-get install cvs
[01:21:49] <cradek> right
[01:22:16] <roltek> but it doesn't seem to recognize the anon checkout command.
[01:22:31] <roltek> I checked out in my name at sf and that went fine.
[01:22:45] <roltek> great system btw
[01:23:35] <roltek> configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
[01:23:46] <roltek> when I try to configure
[01:24:27] <cradek> what's the error?
[01:24:29] <cradek> hmm, having some intermittent connection problems here, bear with me
[01:24:36] <roltek> np
[01:24:50] <cradek> ah, ok
[01:24:58] <cradek> you need to install the rest of the build environment
[01:25:01] <cradek> here's the easy way
[01:25:12] <cradek> edit /etc/apt/sources.list, copy the last line (dsplabs) and make it deb-src
[01:25:26] <cradek> so you have a deb and deb-source line, with everything else the same
[01:25:48] <cradek> err deb-src
[01:26:56] <cradek> now, sudo apt-get build-dep emc2
[01:27:23] <cradek> 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
[01:30:09] <roltek> I found an emc2 dev in synaptic and grabbed it just now.
[01:30:59] <cradek> emc2-dev allows you to build GUIs like AXIS, it's not exactly what you want, but doesn't hurt
[01:31:46] <cradek> the thing you really want is apt-get build-dep emc2
[01:31:47] <roltek> Okay. I'll edit the sources.list
[01:32:22] <cradek> so the packaged emc2 ran fine?
[01:34:09] <roltek> Yes it ran great. This is a via 800 epia motherboard.
[01:34:25] <cradek> terrific
[01:34:49] <cradek> what did you think of the install, instructions, etc, on your first time through?
[01:35:20] <cradek> 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?)
[01:38:06] <roltek> Not bad at all. I'll comment more when I get back home.
[01:38:20] <cradek> deb-src http://dsplabs.cs.upt.ro/emc2/ breezy emc2
[01:38:39] <cradek> is your line exactly like this?
[01:38:39] <roltek> okay wrong end of the line.
[01:40:17] <cradek> I forgot: sudo apt-get update - then - sudo apt-get build-dep emc2
[01:42:10] <roltek> Got it.
[01:42:15] <roltek> installing now.
[01:42:38] <cradek> that will get you the necessary compilers, libraries, everything
[01:43:04] <roltek> Great. That'll get this box going the way he wants.
[01:43:07] <roltek> Thanks.
[01:43:20] <cradek> I updated emc2-install.sh to add the deb-src as well
[01:43:40] <roltek> There is quite a bit different on the ubuntu but nothing that I can't get used to.
[01:43:53] <cradek> I think that emc2 package you installed is exactly the same as CVS head.
[01:44:09] <cradek> (I know it's exactly the same as CVS TESTING)
[01:45:23] <roltek> Okay. How do I start a terminal from a file browser?
[01:46:04] <cradek> don't know...
[01:46:19] <roltek> darn. that is one handy feature of kde
[01:48:32] <cradek> I don't see anything like that on the menus
[01:49:17] <roltek> I didn't either.
[01:49:33] <roltek> running make now. config seemed to complete okay.
[01:50:19] <roltek> with the revised make system do we need to worry about make clean after a cvs up?
[01:50:44] <cradek> that's still a good idea
[01:51:29] <roltek> okay
[01:54:56] <roltek> Thanks again for all your help.
