avr-gcc toolchain installation instructions posted

by mightyohm on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:12 pm

Hello all!

I am working on a book about AVR microcontrollers for beginners with Mitch Altman of Brain Machine / TV-B-Gone fame.

As part of the book I had to write toolchain installation instructions for all three major operating systems - Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Ubuntu).

We decided to post them online so we can collect feedback and also encourage people to start playing with microcontrollers.

You can check them out here:

Enjoy,
Jeff aka mightyohm

Hi mightyohm,

Since i had to reinstall this week I gave WinAVR a try. I'd say the Windows (XP) instructions are straight forward.
I like the basic / no tools approach! This way people learn what they need to do instead of how to do it with tool X.
