Hi folks, my group and I have been having quite a bit of trouble getting the 2018 frc-toolchain up and running. We’ve found that we can install it just fine on ubuntu 17.10 (artful) but are unable to install it on ubuntu 16.04 (xenial).
To be super duper sure that it isn’t just our personal computers that are messed up, we took a fresh install of ubuntu xenial and ran the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y libc6-i386 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wpilib/toolchain sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y frc-toolchain
And we get the following output:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: frc-toolchain : Depends: g++-arm-frc-linux-gnueabi (>= 5.5) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: frcmake but it is not going to be installed
Installing libc6-i386 was recommended here: https://wpilib.screenstepslive.com/s/currentCS/m/getting_started/l/599679-installing-eclipse-c-java
From snooping around on forums and on screensteps, it seems like no one else is having this issue which implies to me that we are doing something wrong with our setup procedure. Does anyone see what we’re doing wrong? The dependency tree for frc-toolchain is massive. Does anyone have any advice on how to snoop through the whole thing?
