I was trying this method on another different program and its not finding some files from dependancies while building with this method. How can I fix this when I know the dependancies are already built? What am I missing here? Does there need to be a symlink from the overo-oe folder to another spot? If so what should the link be to my build machines include folder or?

Also once I have built a program in this manner I am still also having issues getting it working on the overo properly. Everything builds but I can not get it to run the command from the command line such as using something like this: foo says cant find program foo. but if I do full path it will run foo. Does this also mean if I run a program by full path any other programs that it uses need to be called by the full path as well?

Sorry if these are really basic questions I am just lost as to how to get this to work properly.

@heddoori
how did you get hostap to run from the command like just by typing in hostap ?

Thanks for any help with this.

Hi,

I don't think there are any specific conditions to create a directory
structure on Gumstix. But one has to keep in mind that all the files that
are needed by the executable should be present in Gumstix when one
executes them.
