mtd-utils problem


Since the release of Armadeus 3.2 the mtd-utils archive format has changed and if you hadn't already download it before, you will have that kind of error when building:

gzip -d -c /home/xxx/armadeus-3.2/buildroot/../downloads/mtd-utils-a8ce7c2668ef0781326f629eef02cef6c3962b8a.tar.gz | tar -C /home/xxx/armadeus-3.2/buildroot/build_armv5te   -xf -
rm -rf /home/xxx/armadeus-3.2/buildroot/build_armv5te/mtd-utils-a8ce7c2668ef0781326f629eef02cef6c3962b8a
mv /home/xxx/armadeus-3.2/buildroot/build_armv5te/mtd-utils /home/xxx/armadeus-3.2/buildroot/build_armv5te/mtd-utils-a8ce7c2668ef0781326f629eef02cef6c3962b8a

This problem has been corrected in GIT repository, but still remains for armadeus-3.2


Apply the following correction:

$ cd armadeus-3.2
$ wget
$ patch -p1 < armadeus-26a5a427520259cbccb2fbb0c719431bc2e7ad00.patch
$ rm downloads/mtd-utils-a8ce7c2668ef0781326f629eef02cef6c3962b8a.tar.gz
$ make

tslib compilation on Ubuntu >= 9.10


Ubuntu uses new version of automake, incompatible with some modifications done in tslib makefile

Solution 1 (downgrade automake)

Warning Warning: For Ubuntu 9.10, it is required to use Automake version 1.10 instead of the one proposed by default 1.11:
 $ sudo apt-get install automake1.10
 $ sudo apt-get remove automake

Otherwise you may experience problems while compiling tslib:

libtool: install: error: cannot install `' to a directory not ending in

Solution 2 (if you don't plan to use Pygame on the APF)

$ rm buildroot/package/tslib/tslib-1.0-zzz-prevents_unresolved_symbols.patch
$ make tslib-dirclean
$ make
