Issues getting started with the Programmer Shield

Hi all !

Recently i purchased a programmer shield and want to start experimenting with it. To get going i’m following this tutorial:

I did everything up and including running:

./configure --enable-ftdi

The output of this command fails with:

configure: error: libusb-1.x is required for the MPSSE mode of FTDI based devices

I don’t know what should I do next, and need some guidance…

Here is what i’m using as equipment:

  • Macbook Pro
  • OSX El Capitan

Here is the entire output of the command:

Try to install libusb with brew install libusb

@jvanier

Hi Julien, thank you for answering.

Here’s what I get when I try that:

MacBook-Pro:openocd-0.9.0 Alex$ brew install libusb
Warning: libusb-1.0.20 already installed
MacBook-Pro:openocd-0.9.0 Alex$ 

Any ideas?

That must only include the release version, not the files needed to compile a program using libusb.

Try

git clone http://git.libusb.org/libusb.git
cd libusb
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install

ok so here’s what i’ve got…

git clone http://git.libusb.org/libusb.git

Output:

MacBook-Pro:openocd-0.9.0 Alex$ git clone http://git.libusb.org/libusb.git

…then while in libusb:

It appears I got the same error…

I actually just ran into this as well. Just for full disclosure, I have not yet finished setting this up, but I am at least passed where you are in the process. I was using ZSH, and I have no idea exactly what caused the error, but all I know is I think I fixed it. Here’s what I did to fix it:

bash
brew install --HEAD openocd

This got me past that error. But then I ran into something else which you may or may not run into. Clang gave me an error:

sim3x.c:867:20: error: address of array 'sim3x_info->device_package' will always evaluate to 'true' .

So I used the patch posted here: http://openocd.zylin.com/#/c/2838/2/src/flash/nor/sim3x.c referenced in here: http://sourceforge.net/p/openocd/mailman/message/34242861/ which solved that issue as well.

Hopefully this helps.

Looks like I already installed this as well…

MacBook-Pro:openocd-0.9.0 Alex$ brew install --HEAD openocd 
Warning: open-ocd-0.9.0 already installed

Interesting, that fixed my issue when I went back and tried to configure it again. You may want to make sure that you did

brew install libusb-compat

Just a guess, sorry I couldn’t be more help.

MacBook-Pro:openocd-0.9.0 Alex$ brew install libusb-compat

Thanks for trying…weird stuff. I just wished it was simpler to get going with this thing… hehe

I ran into the same issue with “…configure: error: libusb-1.x is required for the MPSSE mode of FTDI based devices”. Use Macports to install OpenOcd (see http://openocd.org/doc-release/README.OSX) instead of brew

OK…So I’ve installed MacPorts and it seems that ./configure --enable-ftdi did not provide any errors. Thank you for that. :thumbsup:

Now however I’m trying to do: make install

I get version mismatch errors:

libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.4.6, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4.6

Fix to the mismatch issue

The error message is pretty straightforward, it seems to be a version mismatch of libtool.
So I managed to resolve this by removing the aclocal.m4 file, and then running:

$ aclocal             //followed by
$ autoconf         //this corrects the mismatch of libtool

New Issue

Now however, I get another error when trying to ./configure --enable-ftdi.

sim3x.c:867:20: error: address of array 'sim3x_info->device_package' will always evaluate to 'true'
      [-Werror,-Wpointer-bool-conversion]

So again I’m stuck…if suggestions exist I’m fully open. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Apply patch @ http://openocd.zylin.com/#/c/2838/

"This fixes a warning as reported by the current clang version:

Thank you…I’ll give this a try. :thumbsup:

Just to make it easier, in OpenOCD directory run:
