Hi,

The build environment uses mercurial (hg) to include information about the version of firmware that you are building. Either you have to remove this step from the build process or place you code in a mercurial repository.

I'm afraid there are lots of steps, but basically you have to create a local copy of the repository before you try to build. Maybe someone can give you the steps from the command line.

I find it simpler to use the Bitcraze Virtual Machine, running under VMware or VirtualBox on Windows 7.

Once you set up this VM, you'll find that it includes all the tools that you need, including Tortousel HG, which has a GUI that can assist you in download, updating, and managing your local files.

A link to information about the tools is in the Wiki, http://wiki.bitcraze.se/misc:osstools:index, and from there you can find help files.

Hope this helps some!

To solve it all you need to do is install tortoise hg and initialize the project.

So to do this

1. sudo apt-get install tortoisehg
2. cd to the root of the project (Lets call it /home/blah/crazyflie-firmware)
3. hg init
4. make

That solved the problem for me

Hi vivekrk44, welcome to the forum!

This issue is really quite old (almost two years now). The current repository does not have a dependency on mercurial anymore, afaik. That is, you should be able to build without it installed. Are you using the latest available on GitHub in either the master or crazyflie2 branches?
