Installing SDK 2.0.1 problem



I’ve just bought an AR 2 drone for video developing purposes.

I’m trying to install de SDK in my UBUNTU 15.10 computer, but I got this error

ld common/mobile_main
/usr/bin/ld: …/…/Soft/Build/targets_versions/ffmpeg_static_PROD_MODE_Linux_4.2.0-23-generic_GNU_Linux_usrbingcc_5.2.1/libavutil.a(eval.o): not defined symbol reference 'fabs@@GLIBC_2.2.5

Could anyone help me?

Thanks in advance.



ok ok …

There is no further development on this sdk and it’s not working on linux x64 systems …



Humm, nice to know. Been having the same problem myself.

What do we do instead?


You can install a 32 bit system.
This SDK is no longer supported


So there is no new SDK used for Ar.drone 2.0? This is what we got right?

Guess 32-bits linux is the solution then.


There is no need for a new SDK, as the 2.0.1 is perfectly working :slight_smile:

ARDrone SDK 2.0.1 - Problem compiling the sdk_demo example

Ok. I just installed Debian i686 (32-bits) … I still get the samme error I did on x86_64 linux ->

I also tried running ARDrone_SDK_2_0_1/ARDroneLib/Soft/Build/, but I get this errormessage: “make: *** Not a directory. Stop.”

ARDrone SDK 2.0.1 - Problem compiling the sdk_demo example

Found the solution. This fixed it:

“I am not quite sure, but I guess you could follow these steps:1) In the Terminal application run the following six commands:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev
sudo apt-get install libiw-dev
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev
sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev2) Set “USE_LINUX=yes” in “ARDronelib/Soft/Build/custom.makefile”.*
3) In the Terminal application go to the “ARDroneLib/Soft/Build/” folder and run make
4) Open the ARDronelib/Examples/Linux/video_demo/Build/Makefile.
Add to GENERIC_LIBS in line 47 -lm -lgobject-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0
So that it looked like a
GENERIC_LIBS=-lpc_ardrone -lrt -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lcairo -lgobject-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -lm
5) In ARDronelib/Examples/Linux/Navigation/Makefile add -lm to GENERIC_LIBS
6) Navigate to the ARDronelib/Examples/Linux. Run make”

hi every body
i have x64_Ubuntu 14 and ARdrone2.0
u said SDK 2.0.1 working good in x64 systems
but i have problem when i want to make examples
error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
i installed all necessary lib s and …
i m confused … why running a sample should be that much hard???


hello again
i solved my problem with making sdk 2.0.1 on ubuntu 64 bit OS

Add the following statement to the 159th line (or above) of “Makefile”, which is located in the “Examples/Linux/Navigation/Build/” folder.
