I was pleasantly surprised this year to find that WindRiver (seems to) be working properly. I have some problems that might/might not be related to Wind River.
The sample projects and my alterations compile and the FRC downloader seems properly configured with team number & .out file. When I use download it seems to finish successfully. But when I reset the robot, the code hasn’t changed. Any idea why it would do that?
I have also properly configured the camera and connected it to the cRIO but the little yellow light on the Ethernet port does not blink and nothing shows up on-screen. Does the robot code need to activate the camera somehow? If so, the previous problem would keep me from finding out. I know almost nothing about the camera and my teammates want it to align the robot for this year’s game ::ouch::
Also, why does the Camera to dashboard example not produce a .out file?
I have some of these same problems, although I cannot debug anything either. But some builds don’t produce a .out file and the FIRST downloader does nothing. I am going to try a different computer soon
It took me a very very long time and the setup seems to be very fragile, at least to me. For like the first couple hours of hair-pulling, I realized that it was “Downloading To” a localhost connection that you can see in the lower-left corner. I honestly can’t recall what fixed it but your first try may be to remove that localhost connection and only have the robot connection. I will try to look in to it more.
I deleted the Local Host but it didn’t fix the problem. I did some more work today that seemed to confirm the download wasn’t working. I tried to use the Run and Debug configurations, but they terminated instantly and the Robot Code light turned red. Interestingly, when I ran the debugger for one project it stopped in a different one :ahh:
I agree, the setup is very fragile. Why is it that every year I have to jump through dozens of hoops just to get this thing to work? Is this some sort of plot by the GDC?
