[HOWTO] - Build svn hcxfloppyemu-code in Debian Linux Ver 7.3 (64 Bit)
This HOWTO: will explain how to build (compile) hxcfe & hxcfloppyemulator, along with the dependencies for your Debian 7.x 64 bit Linux.BEFORE YOU TRY A COMPILE YOU MUST INSTALL SOME REQUIRED SOFTWARE:
Typically you need to install build-essential, and the headers for the kernel you are running.
Debian Wheezy (Ver 7.x) Packages needed for Software Compile:
2. Linux debian 3.2.0-4-amd64 Headers (or the Headers for your Version)
will tell you the Linux kernel you are currently running.
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
will install the software needed to successfully compile your source code.
Install Additional Required Software to compile (build) hxcfe & hxcfloppyemulator:
Install libx11-dev and svn. I also installed libncurses5-dev, since I built libdsk & cpmtools:
sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libx11-dev svn
At this point you may have had several directory changes or updates, and your system likely needs updated with:
It's a good idea to execute this command at a regular interval, to keep the database updated for the locate command.DOWNLOAD THE SUBVERSION SOURCE:
Create a new subdirectory of your choice to contain the downloaded subversion source code.
My choice was /home/user/Downloads/HxC/slim/hxcfloppyemu-code/HxCFloppyEmulator
NOTE: From this point on, it is assumed you execute the CLI Commands in ORDER.
Download the subversion source from this URL:http://sourceforge.net/p/hxcfloppyemu/code/HEAD/tree/
Download the Fast Light Tool Kit (FLTK) version 1.3.2 source (fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz) from this URL:http://www.fltk.org/software.php
You may want to VERIFY the MD5SUM of the downloaded files, as required.
Create a subdirectory to contain the source. I used /home/user/Downloads/HxC/slim
mkdir -p ~Downloads/HxC/slim
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/hxcfloppyemu/code/ hxcfloppyemu-code
cp ~/Downloads/fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz /home/user/Downloads/HxC/slim
Extract the source folder for fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz
tar -zxvf fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz
Copy the contents of the extracted folder to the subversion tree (ONE SINGLE LONG LINE):
cp /home/user/Downloads/HxC/slim/fltk-1.3.2/*.* /home/user/Downloads/HxC/slim/hxcfloppyemu-code/HxCFloppyEmulator/HxCFloppyEmulator_software/trunk/sources/thirdpartylibs/fltk/fltk-1.3.x
At this point you should have the source tree correct and you should be able to build the code.
In this directory should be a file named "Makefile"
Build the source with:
It should build without errors. If there are errors, you will need to correct the problem causing the error and issue a:
The files hxcfe & hxcfloppyemulator will be located at the following subdirectory:

If the commands do not execute, check the file permissions:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 user user 984570 Mar 13 07:40 hxcfloppyemulator
-rwxr-xr-x 1 user user 40024 Mar 13 07:38 hxcfe
Additional command usage:
./hxcfe -finput:ampro.img -list
./hxcfe -finput:ampro.img -infos
./hxcfe -finput:kpii-mex.td0 -foutput:kpii-mex.hfe -conv:HXC_HFE
./hxcfe -finput:kpii-mex.imd -foutput:kpii-mex_imd.hfe -conv:HXC_HFE
./hxcfe -finput:kayii01.imd -foutput:kayii01_imd.hfe -conv:HXC_HFE
To get to the ./hxcfe & ./hxcfloppyemulator files easily I created a small script named hxc.sh located at /home/user
#cd to the HxC build code, and exit there
Execute the script with:
Script permissions are:
