avrdude: error reading system

by jeremyzschau on Sat Aug 11, 2018 11:36 pm

I am trying to upload to my gemma. Please help.

Arduino: 1.8.5 (Mac OS X), Board: "Adafruit Gemma (ATtiny85 @ 8MHz)"

Sketch uses 3844 bytes (72%) of program storage space. Maximum is 5310 bytes.
Global variables use 187 bytes of dynamic memory.
avrdude: can't open config file "/Users/jeremy/Library/Arduino15/packages/adafruit/hardware/avr/1.4.13/bootloaders/gemma/avrdude.conf": No such file or directory
avrdude: error reading system wide configuration file "/Users/jeremy/Library/Arduino15/packages/adafruit/hardware/avr/1.4.13/bootloaders/gemma/avrdude.conf"
avrdude: error reading system wide configuration file "/Users/jeremy/Library/Arduino15/packages/adafruit/hardware/avr/1.4.13/bootloaders/gemma/avrdude.conf"

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Is there a link about how to uninstall? I think I will replace the gemma with M0 hoping the new software will fix the problem.

I was able to get this working. Under Tools / Programer I selected "USBtinyISP" and Not "Arduino Gemma"

I hope this helps anyone else having this problem.
Best Regards
David
