Title: librepilot for ubuntu >20
Post by: fsamson on September 13, 2021, 03:57:34 pm
Hello I try to compil the librepilot on my ubuntu 20.04 and I have some errors I think due to a newer version of QT.
Is there somebody with ubuntu20.04 that arrive to compil librepilot ?

The following is my experience.  I'm not an expert.

I know that 16.09 needs significant updates to compile on a recent version of Linux.  I started to see what it would take, but put it aside.  I still have an old box with Mint 17.2 that it builds fine on.  To get these old builds running on a new box, you need to copy a few system libs over and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I understand that 'Next' is a lot closer to building on recent Linux and I would recommend building the most recent next which I think is r796.  I have not really tried this recently.  It may work with little or no changes.
