While following the instructions for building ArduPilot from sources from the navio2 documentation, I encounter the following output when exectuing the command “waf configure --board=navio2”:
Setting top to : /home/pi/ardupilot Setting out to : /home/pi/ardupilot/build Autoconfiguration : enabled Setting board to : navio2 Checking for program 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-ar' : /usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-ar Using toolchain : arm-linux-gnueabihf Checking for 'g++' (C++ compiler) : /usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++ Checking for 'gcc' (C compiler) : /usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc Checking for program 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config' : not found Could not find the program ['arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config'] (complete log in /home/pi/ardupilot/build/config.log)
Could not find the program [‘arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config’]
(complete log in /home/pi/ardupilot/build/config.log)
I have read online and found a few similar posts where people were trying to compile the ardupilot, but then encountered a similar problem: link
I tried to install the missing program by running “sudo apt-get install pkg-config-arm-linux-gnueabihf” as suggested in the post. This did not solve my problem.
Does anyone of you know how to solve this?
