Hi, I am trying to install support to use the libpruio library(ies)
I have tried adding
deb Index of /debian unstable main
deb-src Index of /debian unstable main
deb http:/beagle.tuks.nl/debian jessie/
deb-src [trusted=yes] Index of /debian jessie/
both with and without [trusted=yes]
sudo apt-get install libpruio-dev
E: E: Unable to locate package libpruio-dev
I have installed the fbc compiler sucessfully but the attempts to progress further are stymied by the inability to run the cmakefbc tool.
Can anyone advise a workaround?
I am currently using the
debian 10 image but I can go back to debian 9 or even debian 8.
Forgive me I know what kind of effort it is to write one of these things and the documentation effort is wonderful but I stopped programming in basic in 1983 and among the cloud of programming dust it resides with cobol for me and that is not a pleasant memory. I am trying to use the C wrappers as I am reasonably conversant with C on a number of different platforms. Thanks in advance
I don’t think it was ever included by debian officially so you would need to find out from main dev if he host pre-built binaries somewhere.
As a totally different alternative, have you looked at the simppru project? Its basically a project to make programming the PRUs like an arduino-style syntax…has its pros/cons but for sure easier to get started than via assembly / c method.
Not sure why it didn’t go into Buster or Bullseye. I think the kernel updates and inclusion of remoteproc might have gotten in the way. Shared memory is still very possible with remoteproc, as well as controlling the processor execution from userspace, but the details of doing so are different than with direct UIO.
