Eclipse and MingW, cannot make it work
« on: October 17, 2017, 06:32:43 pm »
Hello all,
could anyone help me to set my eclipse to compile using the Mingw32?
I'm a little confused, cause first I created a brunch with the sourcetree, I have the source files in a location A:
then I followed the wiki configured the Msys2, and it downloaded the files again to a different location inside the msys\librepilot

I thank you in advance,
see you

If you folllowed https://librepilot.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/LPDOC/pages/14876735/Windows+Building+and+Packaging then, yes, one of the step is to clone the librepilot git repository.

What did you expect ?

hi Fillnet,
maybe its a lame question, but I am not very experienced.. I though that I could maybe use msys2 to "make", compile the files I had already downloaded using sourcetree. is that possible?

second, I get a compilation error:
Project ERROR: gstreamer-app-1.0 development package not found
mingw32-make: *** [Makefile:296: C:/msys64/home/Administrator/librepilot/build/librepilot-gcs_release/Makefile] Error 3

the reason I want to build the environment is because I want to try to create a one button magnetometer calibration.

thanks,

You should install gstreamer packages (gst-something) as described in wiki page.

You will need to copy the ground directory or modified files (try git status) where the Msys dev environment is installed

You could also use your sourcetree checkout but then you'll need to run some of the setup steps in there (from a msys2 prompt).

mingw32-make all_sdk_install is one of them and should suffice.

Hi Guys,
with your tip I was able to compile it. I basically downloaded the packages all again, and although most were there and stated skipping. some had failed on the first try and I missed seeing it. I like the next version, the oplink graphics change look sick! Im said that my oplink even with The other cliff firmware is not really working. in between I am trying to figure out how to use the eclipse to compile using Mingw and the files downloaded with Msys32..
