This page explains how to install the Orocos Toolchain from the public repositories using a script. ROS-users might want to take a look at the orocos_toolchain stack and the rtt_ros_integration stack.
sh bootstrap.sh. This installs the toolchain-2.6 branch (latest fixes, stable).
cd $HOME mkdir orocos cd orocos mkdir orocos-toolchain cd orocos-toolchain wget -O bootstrap-2.6.sh http://gitorious.org/orocos-toolchain/build/raw/toolchain-2.6:bootstrap.sh sh bootstrap.sh source env.sh
Tweaking build and install options can be done by modifying autoproj/config.yml. You must read the README and the Autoproj Manual in order to understand how to configure autoproj. See also the very short introduction on Using Autoproj.
When the script finishes, try some Orocos toolchain commands (installed by default in 'install/bin'):
typegen deployer-gnulinux ctaskbrowser
After some time, you can get updates by going into the root folder and do
# Updates to latest fixes of release branch: autoproj update # Builds the toolchain autoproj build
You might have to reload the env.sh script after that as well. Simply open a new console. See also Using Autoproj.
Download the archive from the toolchain homepage. Unpack it, it will create an orocos-toolchain-<version> directory. Next do:
cd $HOME mkdir orocos cd orocos tar -xjvf /path/to/orocos-toolchain-<version>.tar.bz2 cd orocos-toolchain-<version> ./bootstrap_toolchain source ./env.sh autoproj build
