Just getting started with bb blue.  Watched the Arrow Video on getting started.  At end it directed me to github for StrawsonDesign "Robotics_Cape_Installer.
Unfortunately the video is two years old and that package is no longer there.  Those files are supposed to be on the board as shipped but I cannot find them.  Is there a replacement for the Strawson package, or can you help me find the replacement that is allegedly on my board?
Thanks

got it. got librobotcontrol installed.  Tried to run led.c. Would not compile and got message "
led.c:12:29: fatal error: rc/robotcontrol.h: No such file or directory
 #include <rc/robotcontrol.h>
                             ^
compilation terminated.
<builtin>: recipe for target 'led' failed
make: *** [led] Error 1

I can see the led.h file in the directory above (in library/include/rc.
Do I need to do something to make these includes available to compiler.  I am using cloud9.
Apologies for being an idiot.  Just getting started.  Thanks in advance.

Are you building this on a beaglebone or desktop?
I get missing .h files when doing it on a desktop (using cross compile tools)
building it on a Raspberry Pi, I get "build/cpu.o: file not recognized: File format not recognized" most likely because its not being build on the correct target.
Will have to find a bone to build it on.
