Minor problem building from source

Hi ya'll,

I'm planning on modifying the ArduPlane code for a recreational project involving hang-gliders.  I had no problem downloading binaries etc... but when I built the current master branch (or ArduPlane-release) I received an error from make/gcc about include/menu.h not found.

From poking around this seems to be a missing symbolic link or somesuch which presumably points to AP_Menu.h.  I made the following change to get things building: https://github.com/geeksville/ardupilot/commit/7b9066d570cef78fd2104d051433154a6d3e1883

With this change I can build a binary that works happily.

Two questions:

  • Is anyone else seeing this problem?  Did I miss a setup step?
  • Is there a preferred way to submit patches?  I just opened an issue at google code, but attaching a patch as text seems a little icky.

Thanks a bunch for all the good work!

    Hi Kevin,

    That's quite strange, especially as your patch is to AP_Var, which we haven't used for a very long time.

    I suspect you got bitten by the transition to the new AP_HAL code. We will make an announcement about that change soon!

    Cheers, Tridge
