Oopsy failing to Make, generate .bin, upload to Daisy

Don’t know how I did it but Oopsy is failing to complete
no Make, no .bin, no upload to device.
Daisy Web Programmer still working so Daisy is connected.

oopsy-verbose: oopsy generated code
oopsy-verbose: generated code
oopsy-verbose: Makefile:12: …/libdaisy/core/Makefile: No such file or directory
oopsy-verbose: oopsy done
oopsy-verbose: done
oopsy-verbose: make: *** No rule to make target `…/libdaisy/core/Makefile’. Stop.
oopsy-verbose: make failed

I tried deleting the Oopsy directory, re-downloading the branch ZIP and it had the same result
I also tried cloning the branch with GitHub Desktop
same result

Not sure why it would happen all-of-a-sudden like that, but if you recloned the repo it may be missing libdaisy (if you didn’t run the install.sh script, or do what it does manually).

It’s complaining about the build file for the project missing. You can check to see if it’s there or if the file/directory are missing by looking in Max 8/Packages/oopsy/source/libdaisy/core to see if there’s a file called Makefile.

If it’s missing, go back to the oopsy folder, and run ./install.sh that should fill the libdaisy folder, and then create the library file that oopsy needs to build the generated code.

No idea what I did.
Recloned with Git
ran install.sh
Working fine now.


I have a similar problem here … I can upload examples from the web programmer but I cannot upload patches from MAX …

Do you have Make installed?

I’ve made it ! I’ve installed Homebrew and all that crazy strange stuff that I’ll never understand and now it works !


For people having issues still, please see the chat I had with support:

Today I installed my Daisy-Products and tried MAX - gen - oopsy…
I had the very similar massages in the MAX-Window than Manysounds…
In my case there where two oopsy-folders in the MAX-search-patch (one from an earlier oopsy-test)
I did the older oopsy-test-folder out of the MAX-search-path…
restartet MAX…
now it seems fine and I am able to go forward…
