This is my first post so please be kind
I’m trying to snap an existing cmake super build application.
The build succeeds and the executable is located in
/root/parts/<part>/build/install. This makes sense as that is how the cmake project is set up.
It looks like the snapcraft stage step expects the contents of
/root/parts/<part>/install to contain the output of the build instead.
Is there a way I can specify in
snapcraft.yaml to use a different install folder?
You can use
override-build to add some custom logic. e.g. this might work:
... # the rest of your part here
... # the rest of your existing build-packages
- rsync # make sure rsync is available for the override-build script
snapcraftctl build # do the normal build steps supplied with snapcraft
rsync -a ./install/ $SNAPCRAFT_PART_INSTALL/
Thank you @lucyllewy that worked however I ended up using
cp -a rather than
rsync. Was there a specific need/reason to use rsync?
cp works for you then it’s fine
