voxl-cross installation document missing



  • Hi @Alex-Gardner ,

    I found a question about installing voxl-cross. I saw the instruction of installing the docker image by this link:
    https://docs.modalai.com/voxl-cross/

    However, it seems the content is the same as the page for installing the voxl-emulator by https://docs.modalai.com/voxl-emulator/. I am not sure if there is anything wrong with it.

    Instead, I double-checked the source code page of the voxl-docker, and found that I could download a pre-built version from https://downloads.modalai.com. But, it seems I can only find a file named voxl-cross_v1.1.tgz, and no voxl-cross image found there. I am wondering why it's v1.1, while the emulator is v1.7. And I didn't find any call for this file in install-cross-docker.sh.

    After re-building locally, I finally installed the voxl-cross and it works well.

    I also notice that it's v1.7. So, there is no image file available on the download page. Please double-check for all correcltions if it's the case.

    voxl-cross 1.7 is a build containing some new gcc toolchains for projects that are not yet on stable. The cross image is meant to be able to be easily built by any user, hence why it was built and installed when you installed the docker image. We've just pushed that image to the downloads page should you need to download it from there.

    As for the docker image docs, you are correct they are out of date right now, we're planning to update them soon and have been delaying doing so because we've been making changes to them.
