Sometimes people have trouble getting ACE compiled. If you are using Linux or Windows, an alternative is to download a specially prepared "ACE4YARP" package that you can compile with CMake and that contains just the part of ACE needed for YARP.

  • You can download a version of ACE configured specially for YARP (and stripped of everything YARP does not use) here:
 http://eris.liralab.it/download/yarp/
  • (take the most recent ace4yarp-5.6.*.tar.gz)
  • You can unpack that, overlay the directories on the YARP source tree, and then do the following in the root source directory:
 rm CMakeCache.txt
 cmake -DBUILTIN_ACE=TRUE .  
  • (modify the cmake command appropriately for out-of-source builds)

That's it! You should see lots of _ace files compiling.


There's some nice bash scripts in the scripts directory, such as scripts/fetch-ace.sh
