Compiling the frimware from a previous commit using the VM

Post by cafeciaojoe »

Hello,

To investigate if I have the same problem as the person in this post (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4537)
I am trying to clone and complie a previous version of the firmware.

I cloned the relevant commit into the projects folder on the VM and opened it up in Eclipse, but there are no "build targets".

very little exprience with ecliplse so not even sure what to google...

cheers

I also have very little experience with eclipse but I usually find it easier to compile from the console anyway. If you type "make" and then "make cload" in the console in the project folder you will be able to compile and flash the firmware using the bootloader.

If you changed the version of the firmware, do not forget to run "git submodule update " to make sure you have the correct version of the submodules.
