Hi there,

 

This looks like there might be stale build files somewhere in your tree. Can you clean the tree and try again? You can use the following command, but please be careful since it will remove all files that are not tracked by Git:

 

$ cd $ZEPHYR_BASE

$ git clean -fdx

Dear All,

 

Thank you very much for your response. That problem is resolved by following your advised step. Moreover, now i was moving towards the HelloWorld example i received the following error.

 

mrg@mrg-Lenovo-ideapad-110-15ISK:~/zephyrproject/zephyr/samples/hello_world/build$ cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=qemu_x86 ..

 

Zephyr version: 1.14.0

CMake Error at /home/mrg/zephyrproject/zephyr/cmake/app/boilerplate.cmake:104 (message):

  Source directory equals build directory.  In-source builds are not

  supported.  Please specify a build directory, e.g.  cmake -Bbuild -H.

Call Stack (most recent call first):

Kindly advise.....

As mentioned by others, please add the following line you your ~/.bashrc:

 

export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/bin

Dear,

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.

Moreover, the path of West file is after running the command

"pip3 show -f west"

is

home/rizwan/.local/python 3.6/packages

Subsequently, i have installed all the stuff related to Zephyr including Cmake and Zephyr sdk in a path

/home/rizwan/zaphyr

Kindly advise.

 

Rizwan

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

If you ran "pip3 install --user west" and west cannot be run afterwards, it sounds like the directory that the west binary was installed into is not on your $PATH. Older versions of Ubuntu sometimes have this issue; I forget which ones.

Usually this directory is ~/.local/bin. Please ensure this directory is on your PATH environment variable and try again.

If that doesn't work, you can confirm where west was installed by running "pip3 show -f west"; check both the Location: value and the [...]/bin/west relative path in the Files: list that follows.

Hi,

Happy to try to help, but could you please provide details? The below email is a bit vague: "commands given on the website cannot recognize the West file" doesn't provide much context on what went wrong.

- what is your host operating system?

- what commands did you type?

- what was the output?

- what output did you expect?

Feel free to just copy and paste rather than taking screenshots of the terminal window.

Thanks,

Marti
