Before installing Player on the Robotino®, certain dependant packages must be installed first. These are listed in the table on the right. The packages can be downloaded from Debian Packages, remembering that the target architecture is an "i386".


Packages needed in order to install Player
Package file
autotools-dev_20050422.1_all.deb
cpp_3.3.5-3_i386.deb
libboost-dev_1.32.0-6_i386.deb
libboost-thread1.32.0_1.32.0-6_i386.deb
libboost-thread-dev_1.32.0-6_i386.deb
libboost-signals1.32.0_1.32.0-6_i386.deb
libboost-signals-dev_1.32.0-6_i386.deb
libc6_2.3.2.ds1-22sarge4_i386.deb
libltdl3_1.5.6-6_i386.deb
libltdl3-dev_1.5.6-6_i386.deb
libgsl0_1.6-2_i386
libgsl0-dev0_1.6-2_i386
libtool_1.5.6-6_i386.deb
pkg-config_0.17.2-1_i386.deb
swig_1.3.24-1_i386.deb


Place the packages in a folder e.g. deb and issue the following command from within that folder:

scp *.deb robotino@<robotino_ip_address>:/writeable/.

Now, use the following command to log onto the Robotino®:

ssh robotino@<robotino_ip_address>

Having logged onto the Robotino®, move to /writeable/ and install the packages one by one using the following command:

dpkg -i <package_name>.deb

Install Player by first configuring the installation

./configure --prefix=<INSTALL_DIR> --disable-alldrivers --disable-shared

where <INSTALL_DIR> is the destination path. For this project Player was installed in /writeable/robotino/player.

When the configuration completes, and without errors, complete the installation with:

make
make install
Personal tools
