Hi Riccardo,

can you please post some more details on your OS (distribution, version), the cross compiler and paparazzi version you are using?

Regarding the USE_UDPx flags: most of them are set "automatically" depending on which UDP ports you use for telemetry:
You can override those defaults in your airframe file, e.g.:
<module name="telemetry" type="transparent_udp">
  <configure name="MODEM_DEV" value="UDP0"/>
The default MODEM_HOST (IP to which the packets are sent is defined in

Cheers, Felix

I have new details: I tried manually running the ap.elf executable in a Telnet shell and it immediately quits with the following error message:

FATAL: kernel too old
Segmentation fault

It makes me think of an issue with the cross-compiler.

Any idea on how to solve this?

I'm trying to start an Ar.Drone 2 session from the default files.
The only changes I made so far are changing the GPS type to sirf and removing the ublox module from the airframe file.

Build & upload are successful, but when I start the session the software gets stuck at "waiting for telemetry" as if the drone doesn't send any data back.

I really have no idea where to start debugging the problem. Does the ap program on the Drone output error messages somewhere?

Also, I'm trying to understand the build system, and there is something I don't get: where do the various makefiles take the "default" configuration values from? And how can I manually vary them for a particular airframe?
For example, when the ap program for the Ar.Drone is built, the flags "USE_UDP0", "UDP0_HOST", "UDP0_PORT_IN", etc. are correctly set (looking at the compiler flags from the ap_srcs.list file), but I don't see them defined anywhere in the configuration files.
