Pi Emulators Now Work Again!

Or they should do, at least…


Whenever I start getting comments and emails rolling in about compilation problems, I always know a new version of Raspbian must have been released, complete with the seemingly-obligatory moving around of libraries and header files ;). I’ve updated the Makefiles to deal with this, so if you were having problems, please head on over to my emulator download page and grab the latest version of the source:


As always, please let me know if you have any problems, but hopefully it should work now (at least until the next distro update moves things again!).

  1. Can you help me, I have archlinux installed and when I try to compile the sources I have the error :

    gcc -c -o emulator.o emulator.c -I/opt/vc/include/ -I./ -I/opt/vc/src/hello_pi/libs/ilclient -I/opt/vc/include/interface/vcos/pthreads -I/opt/vc/include/interface/vmcs_host/linux -DSTANDALONE -D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS -D__STDC_LIMIT_MACROS -DTARGET_POSIX -D_LINUX -fPIC -DPIC -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE -Wall -g -DHAVE_LIBOPENMAX=2 -DOMX -DOMX_SKIP64BIT -ftree-vectorize -pipe -DUSE_EXTERNAL_OMX -DHAVE_LIBBCM_HOST -DUSE_EXTERNAL_LIBBCM_HOST -DUSE_VCHIQ_ARM -Wno-psabi -I/opt/vc/include/
    emulator.c:33:22: fatal error: ilclient.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    make: *** [emulator.o] Error 1

    I have no folder called /opt/vc/src, I have a /opt/vc/include folder but there is no ilclient.h in it :-S

    • I Am getting the same error as Mat. I am running Raspbian 2012. Would an update to latest help?

      Any help would be much appreciated.
