To build ems-flasher pkg-config and libusb are needed. Additionally, OS X requires coreutils and gawk.
On OS X, install the prerequisites using:
brew install pkg-config libusb coreutils gawk
(thanks to hyarion for this info)
On Ubuntu/Debian you can install them by:
sudo apt-get install pkg-config libusb-1.0-0-dev
Building and Installing
./config.sh --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
./config.sh, make sure the installation path of the binary
(BINDIR), the menu ROMs (DATADIR) and the manual page (MANDIR) suit you. If
not, you must run the tool again by specifying the desired paths. Use the
--help option to get the list of all options. If ems-flasher is ran from the
build directory, it will use the menu ROMs located in the same directory, not
the one selected with
config.sh so you can use the software without
On Linux, udev rules ensuring access to users to the USB device without requiring root privileges will be installed on make install. Use make install-udevrules to install only the rules, without the sofware.
Please consult the manual (ems-flasher(1)) for usage instructions.
You can read the manual without installing it with:
man -l ./ems-flasher.1.
