Re: sys_stdio_mphal.c compile failure?

hmm... interesting. well, indeed if I comment out the MICROPY_PY_SYS_STDIO_BUFFER in mpconfigport.h it successfully builds. and if I put it back and do another make (no make clean) - the error returns. I'm fairly certain I've fetched fresh code since the April date of the GitHub issue, without seein...

Re: Status of MicroPython ESP8266 project

I'm a backer of the KickStarter project... it has turned out to be even more awesome than I ever imagined! Congratulations and Thank You!! As for the stretch goal tutorial videos: not at all important. I think your proposed "exchange" is fair (and in fact, not even really needed). I completely agree...

sys_stdio_mphal.c compile failure?

Greetings. The last few days, I've had a problem compiling; the problem seems to be with recent changes to sys_stdio_mphal - in particular as related to the #if MICROPY_PY_SYS_STDIO_BUFFER I'm building on Ubuntu with all the latest code, tool and library updates as described here: https://forum.micr...

Re: howto: Build MicroPython on Debian Linux or a Raspberry Pi for the ESP8266

Thank you Gojimmypi, great tutorial. One question: how do I update the source code in the VM when a new version of Micropython is out? @Lornioiz thanks, I am glad you found it helpful. :) by doing a ./build_esp8266 FULL all of the most recent code should be downloaded, including all of the supporti...

esp-open-sdk build error - python is missing or unusable (debian)

I'll start with the solution. I needed to: sudo apt-get install python2.7-dev (that apparently did not need to previously be installed, as I was able to compile prior to recent updates) Now for the problem (in case others search for it). I had the previous compile working... for quite some time... b...

problems entering raw repl (needs 2 Ctrl-A's?)

Greetings, Apologies in advance if this is a newbie question... but I'm been having problems with the /micropython/tools/pyboard.py tool (it won't connect). After a long delay, I get a message: could not enter raw repl I looked at the source and it apparently has not changed in months. It previously...

Re: Call for testsuite running results

after all my hassle with yesterday's codebase on Debian, (and a missing python3-serial, D'oh!) a fresh fetch today for v1.7-72 has the run-tests working from Debian, with just one failed test: ... pass basics/int_big_mod.py FAIL basics/int_big_mul.py pass basics/int_big_or.py ... 412 tests performed...

Re: Call for testsuite running results

It's a typical novice problem It shows, eh? ;) yes, that's true, my last embedded Microcontroller Development experience was with an Orion Unilab with the 65C02. I'm trying to wean myself off years of Microsoft-only development since then. :) Your pyserial problem is that you installed package for ...

Re: Call for testsuite running results

Please don't run "pip install" with sudo. fwiw, my install is relatively clean in a vm with all the latest os updates and code. No extra pip installs. See my how-to script. Perhap the Debian py serial went bad/missing. (?) I'll revert to snapshot and start over if there's no interesting troubleshoo...

Re: Determine flash size on your module

... how to determine your flash size manually. With your ESP in bootloader mode, use the esptool.py that comes with the pfalcon/esp-open-sdk (change the port accordingly): esptool.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 flash_id Connecting... interesting. fwiw, my Manufacturer ID (0xe0) was not on that page: mylogi...
