FreeBSD Support for IDF

Postby » Sat Aug 12, 2017 9:07 am

I am using esp-idf since 1.0 very successfuly, so a big thanks!
I am using FreeBSD as my development environment, and so I have 2 request:
1- add -o ${uname -s) == "FreeBSD" in tools/kconifg/lxdialog/
2- this is more difficult/complicated:
I have to compile the crosstool-NG - it compiles ok, but the dowload source
version is not the same as that of the binary, so make complains with 'WARNING: Toolchain ...",
in any case the compiled runs just fine!

Would you mind filing this as an issue (or better, a pull request) on the ESP-IDF github repo? That way, we can track the issue and won't forget about it.

I've just made some changes on my own to get it working on FreeBSD 11.1 + p6.

I'll try to make those changes much flexible and dependent of the OS once FreeBSD is detected + simple readme to give some clues about dependencies.

Should I fork your ESP-IDF trunk code (github) and then post my changes on my fork ?

Yes, the nicest way is indeed to fork esp-idf, make the changes, then file the changes as a pull request.
