Installing AVR Toolchain
From HacDC Wiki
There are a few pieces of software you'll definitely want for AVR programming:
- A compiler and/or assembler (avr-gcc) to convert human-readable code to binary
- Manipulation of binaries (binutils-avr). You'll need to convert from the ELF file to something your chip will like.
- Something to talk to your AVR programmer (AVRDUDE), that is the piece of hardware you plug into both your computer and the chip you want to program.
- Not required, but something to make your life easier: (GNU make)
Note that both avr-gcc and binutils-avr come from the avr-libc project. avr-libc itself isn't software per-se; it's a library that implements standard C functions for AVRs.
WinAVR has everything you need.
CrossPack should take care of you.
Install the following packages:
You can get them in one shot using:
sudo aptitude install avrdude avrdude-doc binutils-avr avr-libc gcc-avr
