Error during building AC V3.2.1 on Windows

Hello guys,

I’m facing a problem while building the V3.2.1 firmware on windows.
I cloned the master-repository to my machine and building this workes fine. But when i switch to V3.2.1 - branch and try to build i get this error:

$ make px4-v2-y6
"ERROR: sketch arducopter must contain exactly one of arducopter.pde or arducopter.ino. Stop."

The Ardupilot/Arducopter - folder contains exaclty one of them (i.e the arducopter.pde - file). Any ideas on this? I’d like to build code on base of the V3.2.1 as this is the current firmware on my Pixhawk.

Trying this: Problem building Pixhawk Ardupilot 3.2.1 on windows also didn’t help. Submodules are already updated and initialised.

Do I have to change any directory - file or something like this?

Thank you in advance and regards,
Armin

Hi Armin,

Here is the build file containing the error message.
https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/blob/ArduCopter-3.2.1/mk/sketch_sources.mk#L13
I suggest you could try just commenting that error message out in your version ( using # at start of line) and see what happens

Hi and thanks for your reply!

I haven’t tested your suggestion as i meanwhile switched to the ArduCopter 3.3.3 firmware. This should also work fine for me and i can edit it as well as build it to a firmware.

Thanks for your advice.
I met another error at the end of make.
So, I installed Python using ‘easy_install empy catkin_pkg’.
However, I still get an error message. Please help me again.

maybe you should make px4-clean before make px4-v2
