VFC compilation error

Unread postby JacquesT » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:45 am

Whenever I try and and compile a VFO file from a VFS input file I always get a "Could not open <filename>.vfs for reading" where <filename> is my VFS file e.g. 1920x1080_60.vfs

This happens with a known 'good' VFS file as even the standard template files generate this error. The files have no specific permissions and are located in the directory the command is called from. Even direct referencing the file causes the same issue. Any ideas?

Ok, for some reason I can compile VPro board files but nothing else?

Presumably you've already seen the Michael Pastras pdf regarding this topic? viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16732152

Yep, followed that religiously. I've also tried the mgras-vfc.sh scripts, while these compile they throw up more errors, but the are ignore errors and I do get a .vfo file. Xsetmon won't have anything to do with it though.

Even just trying to build a vfs specific 1280x1024_60 for my panel doesn't work. I'm going to move onto something else for a bit (setting up remote access for fresh install) as I'm at my whits end with vfc atm. Think I need a break and to come back with a fresh pair of eyes.
