Drobo

Cross-compiling problem

OK I’m probably over looking something simple but I’m having problems cross-compiling

I’ve set up my VM following the steps at Droboports
When I try compile however I can’t create folders on my droboapps share due to not having the correct permissions.

What am I missing?

Cheers in advance

In which step are you unable to create folders? Inside ~/code or inside /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps?

/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps

The reason is probably because you created that folder as root. The easiest way to fix is to “sudo rm -fr /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps” and then “mkdir -p /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps” on your user account.

WARNING: do not do this on the Drobo, only on your VM.

Thanks I’ll give that a go.

Cheers for the quick response, was expecting to have to wait a few hours at least.[hr][hr]
Still didn’t work

It seems I can’t make any folders outside of my home directory without sudo

That is strange. In any case, you can always change the permissions on the /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps folder in the VM like this:

chmod a+rwx /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps

This should allow any user to create folders in there.
