Linux port for MiniPOV3

by kmb999 on Sun Mar 07, 2010 11:09 pm

Hi all,

I thought I'd post this here in case anyone else is having troubles programming the MiniPOV3 under Linux. For the record, I'm running Linux Mint 8 (an Ubuntu derivative).

When I tried to 'make program-minipov', I got the following error:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
avrdude -p attiny2313 -P com1    -c dasa -U flash:w:minipov.hex
com1: No such file or directory

avrdude done.  Thank you.


I tried com2, com3, etc with no luck. I'm using a USB-serial converter that came with my nerdkits.com AVR kit (which works just fine). According to 'lsusb', the converter is

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port

I took a look at the Makefiles that they (nerdkits) supply, and they specify /dev/ttyUSB0 as the '-P' argument, so I changed the MiniPOV3 Makefile to have

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
AVRDUDE_PORT = /dev/ttyUSB0     # programmer connected to serial


And it worked just fine. I did not have to use a "special" version of the avrdude software (as mentioned at http://www.ladyada.net/make/minipov3/download.html); the version that comes with Mint 8 works fine (avr-libc, gcc-avr, and avrdude).

Hope this helps.

If it ain't broken, it doesn't have enough features yet.
