# Use with Comedi

The following is a step-by-step procedure to get started using EEROS with comedi. It stands for linux control and measurement device interface. It is a collection of drivers for a variety of common data acquisition plug-in boards.

As a first step install comedi, see http://www.comedi.org/. Next, fetch the EEROS scripts with

$git clone https://github.com/eeros-project/eeros-build-scripts.git eeros-project$ cd eeros-project

Edit the file config.sh.in as follows

use_simulator=false
use_bbblue=false
use_comedi=true
use_ros=false
use_can=false
use_custom_application=true
use_cross_compilation_environment=false
use_ros_setup_script=false

Setting the the entry use_custom_application to true will fetch an existing application from a git repository. Per default this will will be https://github.com/eeros-project/simple-motor-control.git.

Now you can run the clone script

\$ ./clone.sh

After this you can continue with Compile.
