Struggling upgrading from RTT 1.0 to 2.0 - retry

Hi there,

I didn't get a response on orocos-users, so I thought I'd try it here on RTT-dev. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I could sure you some advice, at the very least on the ControlTaskServer.hpp question.


----------- Original post ----------------------------

I've been reading all the (I think) appropriate web pages, but things are not going smoothly. Let me ask my current question, followed by some more general ones that might indicate how far off the proper path I am so someone can get me back on track.

Right now, even though I've run the conversion scripts, my code is complaining because it can no longer find:

I see that header file no longer exists. What should I use in its place?

More general questions:

It's probably because I don't know what I'm doing with autoproj, but I can't seem to do the equivalent of "make install"... so, my RTT includes and libraries are in my home directory, and I had to rename the old ones that were in /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib just so both wouldn't be read in. Then I had to do some nasty hacking to my CMakeLists.txt files to find the new ones.

Regarding cmake, honestly, the instructions in just confused me, and mostly produced errors for cmake. Any suggestions for cmake with RTT 2.0?

I've found several web pages on how to do this upgrade, but there seems to be no one-stop-shop for *the* correct procedure. Is there a best web page to look at?

Am I barking up the wrong tree, trying to use RTT 2.0 with Corba? We're using Ace/Tao BTW, if that is a factor.

FWIW, I'm doing all this on Ubuntu 9.10. (We're looking to upgrade OSes, but haven't found one yet that does everything we need.) Is our old OS part of the problem??

Sorry, I know these questions are all over the place, but I'm having a tough time explaining to my team why I can't even *compile* after several days. I dread linking and testing. :)

Thanks for any guidance you can give,
