Trouble with snapgear...

Hi all!

I must be doing something fundamentally wrong, but I don't see what...

I have obtained a toolchain from http://uclibc.org/toolchains.html and
loop-mounted it as described at the bottom of the page. Then I
downloaded snapgear-3.x.x.tar.gz from
http://ftp.snapgear.org/pub/snapgear/src/ and tried to follow the
instructions on http://www.snapgear.org/snapgear/documentation.html

with snapgear-3.3.0.tar.gz I get:
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]# make xconfig
cannot access `config/mkconfig': No such file or directory
make: *** [config.in] Error 1
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]#


with snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz I get:
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]# make xconfig
make: *** No rule to make target `xconfig'.  Stop.
[root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]#

(this last one makes sense, because there is no Makefile in the
folder...)


Am I missing something? Or are the instructions I am using
incomplete...?

 
Regards,
   Evert

Looks like the snapgear-3.3.1.tar.gz file gets me further! :-)

Evert,

where has the top level Makefile gone ?

you should have the following files in the top level directory:

$ tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz
Quoted text here. Click to load it

and the following directories:

vendors

I then run $ make xconfig
config/mkconfig > config.in
make -C /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts tkparse
make[1]: Entering directory
`/mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts'
cc  -c -o tkparse.o tkparse.c
cc  -c -o tkcond.o tkcond.c
cc  -c -o tkgen.o tkgen.c
cc -o tkparse tkparse.o tkcond.o tkgen.o
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts'
ARCH=dummy /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/tkparse <
config.in > config.tmp
cat /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/header.tk >>
./config.tk
cat config.tmp >> config.tk

etc, etc. and I get the xwindow config boxes appearing.


Any of the versions should work.  3.4.0 is the latest, however we don't have
formal approval to release it yet.

Check to make sure you have the uncompressed files as listed from a
tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz


Regards,
