Quick response on Ubuntu-10.04:
I think you mean libncurses5-dev. Installed it using apt-get and changed the name of the library in script to libncurses5-dev.


You should not change the name. Distributions name packages arbitrarely. The script looks if it can find the installed binary along the defined path using whereis. Therefore, despite libncurses5-dev, the testtool should still test libncurses solely.

About Fedora 15:
This should make you pass configuration:
Instead of simpy:
$ ./configure --prefix=/local/home/projects/opencores/minsoc/tools
Do:
$ PATH=$PATH:/local/home/projects/opencores/minsoc/tools/bin ./configure --prefix=/local/home/projects/opencores/minsoc/tools

Then try: make

Maybe you find the linker error you were receiving in the beginning then.

If it works, give the script another try from start.

Hi,

I have installed MinSoC on Fedora12.

The file usb.h is missing from the libftdi-0.19/src folder. Copy the file from libusb-0.1.12 folder. The script will then run without problem.

Add the following line to the minsoc-install.sh, just after libusb has been installed, and before libftdi begins the configuration.

cp ${DIR_TO_INSTALL}/download/libusb-0.1.12/usb.h ${DIR_TO_INSTALL}/download/libftdi-0.19/src

regards
ms

Hi ms,

thanks for your workaround. Since this happened some times already, I decided to take a better look into it.

I found out that the configuration script works out fine. However, it has a flaw. Some of libftdi code is C++ and depends on libusb. Though, only CFLAGS was set to libusb-config --cflags. But g++ is run with CPPFLAGS instead of CFLAGS, which does not include the path to usb.h.

A good workaround would be to substitute line 199 of minsoc-install.sh for:
execcmd "PATH=$PATH:${DIR_TO_INSTALL}/tools/bin ./configure --prefix=${DIR_TO_INSTALL}/tools CPPFLAGS=-I${DIR_TO_INSTALL}/tools/include"

I hope that helps in future. I will include this update to the development version of MinSoC.

Thanks again,
Raul
