no. I want to initialize a second Zephyr project area in parallel. So for example:

Hi David:

I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly.

Do you mean that you  created "zephyrproject_2" under "/home/dleach/work/zephyrproject" and run "west init"? If so, I don't think you should create "zephyrproject_2" like this. You should create it in another directory, rather than "/home/dleach/work/zephyrproject".

Can I use west to initialize multiple working directories?


I’m experimenting with adding a module and I wanted to a setup so I created a ‘zephyrproject_2’ directory and ran a ‘west init’ command with some additional parameters to use the west.yaml of my url/branch but it returns an error which leads me to think a system can only have one installation:


FATAL ERROR: already in an installation (/home/dleach/work/zephyrproject), aborting
