I’m trying to add a package to buildroot, but I’m not having much success. The package I’m trying to add is an
autotools package called
scew. I’ve followed the buildroot guidelines about adding packages, and although the package is listed when
make menuconfig is run, when I run make the package is missing from the final
I’ve also copied over another simple
.mk file that’s used to install
which, and changed the variable names and URL accordingly. Here is my copy of
SCEW_VERSION = 1.1.3 SCEW_SITE = http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/scew/ SCEW_LICENSE = GPLv3 SCEW_LICENSE_FILES = COPYING $(eval $(autotools-package))
In the same directory I have
Config.in, which looks like:
config BR2_PACKAGE_SCEW bool "scew" help google scew
I’ve also added the following lines to
menu "My Packages" menu "Packages I Wrote" source "package/MyPackages/packagesIWrote/hello/Config.in" source "package/MyPackages/packagesIWrote/helloworld/Config.in" endmenu menu "External Packages" source "package/MyPackages/external-packages/scew/Config.in" endmenu endmenu
This part seems to work, as the packages are listed and can be selected. The hello and helloworld packages are copies from a guide to adding packages, taken from this website (written in french):Adding Hello World.
The hello world packages also do not work. I’d be glad of any advice at all, as it seems I’m just going around in circles on this one, and I can’t see what I’m doing wrong.
