MiniPOV3 on Ubuntu

by llynix on Sat Oct 01, 2011 9:39 am

I found an easier way to install the needed avr toolchain on Ubuntu 10.10 at least:

sudo apt-get install flex byacc bison gcc
sudo apt-get install libc6-dev
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo apt-get instlal gcc-avr
sudo apt-get install gcc-avr
sudo apt-get install avr-libc
sudo apt-get install avrdude
mkdir minipov
cd minipov/
wget http://www.ladyada.net/media/minipov3/m ... rmware.zip
unzip minipovfirmware.zip
#edit makefile to AVRDUDE_PORT = /dev/ttyS0
nano Makefile
make program-minipov

That's the down and dirty of it.. hope it helps someone. I was using the serial port and not the usb.. so the instructions may vary.
