"hello" example problems

Sun Jun 24, 2012 2:31 pm

I'm having trouble compiling the examples that came with the system. For example, hello font, when I compile it using geany, it returns:

Code: Select all

main.c29:22 fatal error: bcm_host.h: No much file or directory
It's having a paddy over the

Code: Select all

#include "bcm_host.h"
Any help at all?

Which distro you using?
Are you building on the RPi?

You need to compile it using the makefile.
E.g type in make in the directory.
I'd imagine it is possible to configure Geany to execute the make command, but I've never tried.

I've found that if I load the makefile into geany then I can invoke make, or make custom, from the geany menus.

I've just tried it and there is an error in the make file. The path to the libfreetype.so is wrong, remove "arm-linux-gnueabi" from the path. After that it built and ran ok from the terminal.

I don't quite understand, how do I build and then run it from the terminal?

When the system had booted and you have logged on you need to cd to the folder.

Code: Select all

cd /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_font
Then you need to edit the make file.

Code: Select all

sudo nano ./Makefile
delete the line "arm-linux-gnueabi" Should look like the following

Code: Select all

OBJS=main.o
BIN=hello_font.bin

LDFLAGS+=../libs/vgfont/libvgfont.a -L$(SDKSTAGE)/usr/lib $(SDKSTAGE)/usr/lib/libfreetype.so -lz

include ../Makefile.include
Then just type make

After that run it with ./hello_font.bin

:)

Hopefully I have explained that ok.

Make didn't work.

Code: Select all

cc: error: /usr/lib/libfreetype.so: No such file or directory
make: *** [hello_font.bin] Error 1
rm main.o

Possibly:
sudo apt-get install libfreetype-dev

Doesn't like that, I'm afraid.

Code: Select all

E: Invalid operation libfreetype-dev

Actually I think it is:
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev

although your error message didn't look right. Are you sure you typed it correctly?

I had that error, sorry, forgot to say I had installed libfreetype6-dev. Doh! I knew I had forgotten something, too busy writing my texture code. :)

Most odd. When I tried to install libfreetype6 nothing updated or changed.

Code: Select all

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded
I tried making again and it came up with the same error, no such file or directory. I checked in that directory and libfreetype.so doesn't exist in /usr/lib/
Heh, what now.

Are you on Squeeze or Wheezy ? On Wheezy the file is here:
/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/libfreetype.so

if you are in the /opt/vc/src/hello_pi directory it is owned by root, so you either need to do a sudo make or preferably copy the directory to you home and edit the make files to the correct place.

Squeeze, and I changed the directory as per:

In the make file; so that's nice, and that worked. It still has a problem over the line:

Code: Select all

#include "bcm_host.h"
I feel like a proper twerp for going on, and I bet it's just me that's managed to do something silly.

Sorry didn't get back to you sooner, been working away with some very expensive robots.

So, lets recap. You have created a bootable Debian Squeeze sd card. Booted it and changed directory to this example project. Typed make and you get this error?


I'll do the same and see if I can recreate the issue, my Squeeze has got the driver update and a few other installs so may not be a good system for me to try to help you with.
