the 32bit-vm works fine. I just tested the functionality and your script does exactly what it should. Great work!

I do some more testing tomorrow. Maybe I have one or two ideas for improvement...


Thanks, suggestions are welcome!

I'm fairly sure the VM will stay as it is, so in the next few days I will make it public. Still waiting for test results from you guys.

I haven't found any time for further testing until now. I am sure that the vm works as intended and makes it really simple for anybody to compile his own deviation.
I have compiled all versions of deviation multiple times and never had any errors, deleted the local repo and so on - everything went fine.

The ideas I have are:
- select a special commit (give it as parameter) to build older versions
- make repo-update and building seperately callable (means: one command for update, another for building) to have the possibility to make changes in the sources before compiling
- the deviation version (now 2.1.0) somewhere in the names of the resulting files (e.g. devo8-2.1.0-07303bd23902.dfu)
but they base on my personal interests and way of working. I don't know if these features would be useful for others too (and how much effort it would take to realize this - but I think I could help).

Again: great job. I struggled for hours to get my own compiling machine running. The vm makes this so much easier.

Two short ideas for the helper script:

do some checks for correct parameters:
...
} elsif($cmd eq "build") {
	my $target = shift || 'devo10';
	$target = lc($target);
	if($target ne "devo8" and $target ne "devo6" and $target ne "devo10") {
		print(EX,"unknown target '$target'. Only devo6, devo8 or devo10 supported.\n");
		exit 2;
	}
	build($target);
...
"$param = lc($param);" might be a good idea at different positions...

No need for sudo in self-update if you realize it with a link (ln -s /home/dev/dhs/deviation /usr/local/bin/deviation). The link can be included in the vm's filesystem and there will be no need to copy anything to /usr/local/bin.

edit: Sorry, forgot to use the bitbucket issue system. Done now.

Great ideas thanks.

Links to the script was not possible since the script itself if bundled with the VM, but the repo isn't.

I'll implement some for tomorrow, stay tuned.

Updated to support Devo 7E build.
Implemented 'cleanup' command. This will run 'make clean' in the src directory for specified build target.

If you get errors compiling new build they can be from lingering .obj files, so run for example:

deviation cleanup devo8

Replace devo8 with your target.

Please run 'deviation self-update'

Tried building 7e but got this error,




Building for 8&10 works fine.

Btw, is there a command for building the simulator/pc gui for the different firmwares?

Fixed, please run:

deviation self-update
deviation build devo7e

Simulator is working on linux, I'l working on a cross compile, will post info when I got a working setup.

You can run the Linux version on windows with SSH forwarding and Xming as X11 server. pretty painless but requires installing some packages on the Windows host system.

Still broken, you get a filesystem folder with the devo 10 files and no protocol folder.

Will look into it again.

EDIT:

Fixed.

Warning, you will get a ZIP file for Devo 7e, if someone wants automatic unzipping say so please.

I built the latest code. But it can't boot in my Devo 7E.
It just beeps and the white screen flashes.
Does anyone ever see this problem too?

Im tryin to learn how to compile my own deviation builds.
i`ve installed the ova from the first post and get:
/bin/mv: cannot stat "deviation-fs-devo8-4de892806596.zip": No such file or directory!! Moving FS archive failed.
in the end of the compiling process
There is only the dfu File in my C:\Deviation folder

Next is how can i change the repository to compile from rbe`s repository to get widescreen support for my devo12s

It's fixed, please run:
deviation self-update

About changing repository, please edit /usr/local/bin/deviation and change
URL => "https://bitbucket.org/PhracturedBlue/deviation",

found on line 20 with the rbe's URL. I have yet to add a formal way of changing repository.

VI is easy:
vim /usr/local/bin/deviation

then
:%s/https:\/\/bitbucket.org\/PhracturedBlue\/deviation/some other url/ <enter>
:wq<enter>

when entering the other URL, escape every / like this \/

Or alternatively use sed:
sed -i "s|https://bitbucket.org/PhracturedBlue/deviation|other url|" /usr/local/bin/deviation

Replace 'other url' on the command line with rbe's repo.
