Re: [Paparazzi-devel] Ubuntu 10.10 compile error

That error actually looks like there is a problem with the mkdir command, which the mkdir info page suggests:

_Warning_: Avoid specifying a source name with a trailing slash,
when it might be a symlink to a directory.  Otherwise, `mv' may do
something very surprising, since its behavior depends on the underlying
rename system call.  On a system with a modern Linux-based kernel, it
fails with `errno=ENOTDIR'.

I had several issues related to installing paparazzi on ubuntu 10.10 distributions a couple weeks ago. Have you checked your account privileges and directory permissions? I had to recursively chown the paparazzi directory before I could compile for some strange reason (chown -R username.username ~/paparazzi/). Your problem looks like the script doesn't have permissions to execute mkdir in that directory - so you most likely have a permissions issue with your user "hendrix" in that directory..
You can try compiling as sudo then chown -R as above as well..

(thanks to Felix for helping me with related issues a couple weeks ago)

Well i found another problem.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 on an external hard disk (fast) and loaded all paparazzi files.
When i try to compile everything seems to run smooth until i get this message near the end:

mkdir: cannot create directory `paparazzi': Not a directory
make: *** [paparazzi/var/include/messages.h] Error 1

Now that is strange...
If i run an already compiled paparazzi from Ubuntu 10.04 it runs fine.
Also is it possible someone to explain to me how can i calibrate a user map?
I did what the wiki says but the map appears on the upper corner as a small tile and far away from the intended position.
