    Hay ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am trying to get PowerBlock to work with my installation of OSMC. Following the instructions I got to the ‘make’ command and got hit with:

    cd src/powerblock && make all
    make[1]: Entering directory '/home/osmc/PowerBlock/src/powerblock'

    Still can’t get it to make ๐Ÿ™ followed instructions to the letter but just fails each time ๐Ÿ™

    sounds like you downloaded the files as root or something first – should do it without sudo. make sure you have gcc/g++ installed

    So I deleted the powerblock directory totally and went back through the instructions. Still had the same issue ๐Ÿ™ Noticed it mentioned an error log file so have attached that. Seems like it is missing something, but I have done “sudo apt-get install -y cmake g++-4.9” which is what it asked for and it installed g++, said that cmake was already the up to date version.
