That’s for code developers that want to modify and write code. If you don’t want to write your own code but just want to fly then download the latest version of the Mission Planner and use that to install the firmware.
Thank you for your reply! Actually that is what I would like to be able to do in the not-so-distant future. We are working on a university project and would like to test our code in it so we would like to start getting acquainted with it.
Can you or anyone else help me getting started as a developer?
if you get any information can you post it here? I too am wanting to do this.
So I am having a similar issue I think. I have a Windows 8 PC, wanting to modify software for Pixhawk.
I have carefully followed the instructions at: http://dev.ardupilot.com/wiki/building-px4-with-make/
Everything seems set up as required, but I get a compile error message:
c/Users/Mike/Documents/GitHub/ardupilot/Arducopter/~.pde: No such file or directory.
I have run console in admin mode, same issue. And same in Eclipse - but then again this uses the same console I think.
Dead in the water right now, so if anyone can help please!
My Eclipse can find the directory,but when I build the source code I get this
c:/Users/ByYoung/Documents/GitHub/ardupilot/libraries/AP_InertialNav/AP_InertialNav.cpp:8:54: error: 'const AP_Param::GroupInfo AP_InertialNav::var_info ' is not a static member of 'class AP_InertialNav'
make: *** [libraries/AP_InertialNav/AP_InertialNav.cpp.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/c/Users/ByYoung/Documents/GitHub/ardupilot'
make: *** [/c/Users/ByYoung/Documents/GitHub/PX4Firmware/Build/px4fmu-v2_APM.build//c/Users/ByYoung/Documents/GitHub/ardupilot/module.pre.o] Error 2

make: *** [px4-v2] Error 2
and no .px4 file created.
I get error 2 and 5 as well.
I found this link and it worked actually, for those who need help: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/drones-discuss/PeL1KYYoEH0
