Tekkotsu 4.0 - bug in makefile/ftp
- I'm not quite sure if this is the appropriate place to report this,
please let me know if there's a better channel for this sort of thing...
There's an error in ./aperios/Makefile.aperios regarding the
compile-ftpupdate target (or there's a bug in the ftpupdate script that
is triggered by this target, I chose to patch the makefile). The make
process creates a project/ms/bld_info.txt file, and the presence of this
file chokes ftpupdate, reporting:
Updating the memorystick via ftp using ftpupdate with the IP adress
bld_info.txt truncated to .
make: *** [compile-ftpupdate] Error 9
It's a quick fix, I just added a line to remove this file before
updating. I suppose you could make it move the file to /tmp and then
move it back, but I don't have a use for the file anyhow.
Here's a patch that corrects the issue:
