I will rebuild the package and put it to the server in January when I get back to ENAC. If someone has a recent version of a live CD, I'll be happy to add it.

Hi Gareth,

I think the ENAC guys would be happy to put it on the paparazzi server :-)

Although the live CD can't really replace a proper installation as
there is quite a lot beeing changed/fixed/updated it is a pretty good
way to test it.
Also the graphical SVN update won't be so much help since we use git
for the software now (but still pretty nice to have ;-)

But git should be on the live CD as well, it is not included in the
standard installation I think.

That actually reminds me that we have to add git to the dependency
list of the paparazzi-dev package.... Antoine? Gautier? ;-)

Cheers, Felix

Also a word of caution about the live CDs. They are pretty old and out
of date, especially for the end user the configuration of the airframe
has changed quite a bit since then (all for the better of course ;-).
But otherwise you can of course still use them to check it out.
Of course if someone wants to make a more up to date live CD that
would be welcome :-D

Cheers, Felix

Hi James,

Chris, I don't think there is an OSS version of Virtualbox for OSX, it's
amazing how much we take for granted in the linux world...

I've got a Macbook, but for serious work I have a Linux partition I boot
into.  Virtualbox can be weird about USB, especially under OS-X where
is really sure how things work (personally on my Snow Leopard late 2010
Macbook I've NEVER got a USB device to work under closed source

Does the live CD say anything if you type
into a command window?

You probably know this, but you've left it quite late in your project to
sort this out - if you want a reasonable chance of flying you'll need to
this working ASAP.  The serial port trick means that at least your HW is
fine though.

Did you install the udev rules into the live cd (you didn't specify which

Hi everyone, I'm trying to use Paparazzi for a University design
but I'm having serious problems getting started.  I'm using an OSX host
machine with a Ubuntu virtual machine.

For the Tiny 0.99, I used a USB<->  Serial converter and an LPC
which was plugged into the serial port.  I tried programming it in USB
and serial mode and they both failed (no USB device found).  I did
program it by connecting the the converter and creating a socket on the
machine, then using that socket as a serial port on the guest machine
programming it in serial mode, but I'm not sure why this worked and the
other approach didn't.

I also tried programming the TWOG with a cable I bought on PPZUAV, but
host and guest machines both failed to even recognize that something was
plugged in.  I believe the bootloader is already installed, and the LED
flashes when I connect power.  I even tried booting from the live CD and
had the same problem.

I've been stuck here for a couple months, so I would really appreciate
