I recently bought two Wixel boards and I am trying to program them. I get the following messge when I run make_all.bat in the wixel-sdk folder:
0 [main] sh 4588 sync_with_child: child 1996(0x108) died before initialization with status code 0x0
167 [main] sh 4588 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for longjmp
/bin/sh: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
make: *** [apps/io_repeater/io_repeater.rel] Error 128
You may now close this window.
I checked that make.exe is the one you recommend:
GNU Make 3.82-pololu2

“where make” show me the following:
C:\Pololu\Wixel\GNU Build Utilities\make.exe
My Path env variable looks as follows:
set path=C:\Pololu\Wixel\bin;C:\Pololu\Wixel\GNU Build Utilities;c:…
I searched the forum and found an answer that mention WinAVR. Not sure how winAVR fit in the picture, however, since I have the Pololu make.exe first in the path, I don’t think winave make.exe takes effect. Also, I couldn’t use that answer to resolve my problem.
I am running on Windows Vista 64bit.
I have the following folder structure under c:\pololu\wixel
- GNU Build Utilities
I am able to run “Wixel configuration utility” and I am able to upload “wxl” files to the board. But I need to be able to write and compile my own.
Your help is sincerely appreciated.
