Title: Help Setting Up Ubuntu 7.04 Compiling Computer from Rockboxdev.sh
Post by: DanManners on May 08, 2007, 08:43:09 PM
I know I've basically asked about this before, but I just got Ubuntu 7.04 installed on an old computer, and I want to set it up into a compiling computer for a build I might start publicly (and for personal reasons). Anyway, I go to run Rockboxdev.sh in the tools folder of the source, and it gives me this error:

Code: [Select]
daniel@daniel-desktop:~$ '/home/daniel/Desktop/rockbox-20070508/tools/rockboxdev.sh'
Download directory: /home/daniel/tmp (edit script to change dir)
Install prefix: /usr/local/[target] (edit script to change dir)
Build dir: /home/daniel/build-rbdev (edit script to change dir)
WARNING: this script is set to install in /usr/local but has no
WARNING: write permission to do so! Please fix and re-run this script

Now, does anyone have any ideas? By the way, the file already has FULL permissions, went to properties and gave it proper privlages. Help? Please?

Never mind...I'm stupid. I had to run it as 'sudo'.

great news, Dan. Enjoy compiling, and enjoy 7.04 how is having compiz installed by default? ;)
 (although if it's a really old PC, I don't think you would be doing any fancy XGL would you? )

A bit off topic, but It's only a two year old computer. My brother just borked it because he dropped it about...Oh, I don't know...six feet or so? :-P

So ya, compiz and beryl are gorgeous. I love shakey windows and whatnot Hahaha!
