Hello,

 

I am new to gumstix.

 

I have purchased an Overo Fire COM with Chestnut43 and 4.3 inch screen.

I am interested in Android development on this platform.

Developing in Ubuntu 10.10.

 

I have been working my way through:

http://wiki.gumstix.org/index.php?title=RowboatAndroid

 

Have been able to:

 

Checkout Sources

Build a Kernel

 

When I get to  “Build a Root File System”,

$ make TARGET_PRODUCT=overo –j8

Does not work, as it seems that files are missing.

 

Specifically:

 

hardware/ti/omap3/liblights/Android.mk:18

hardware/ti/omap3/liblights/overo/Android.mk:

No such file or directory

Make: *** No rule to make target ‘hardware/ti/omap3/liblights/overo/Android.mk’

Stop

 

It appears that there should be an ‘overo’ directory in liblights.

When I look, it is missing, thus I cannot compile the Root File System.

 

 

Lastly, a note about Java.

In a previous attempt I had received an error message stating that Java 1.5 is needed to compile.

I am using Ubuntu 10.10, which does not directly support Java 1.5.

A discussion of how to handle this will save new people time.

 

Thanks,

Bob Hartmann
