How to convert programs (like the $50 bot's) into hex in Linux
« on: November 07, 2008, 12:27:45 AM »
I have been trying to transition to Linux (Ubuntu, 8.02), and I am also new to the robot building gig. I was wondering if anyone knows how to take the code from the $50 bot and have it create a hex file so I can run it through avrdude. I thought avrdude might be able to do it, but I couldn't find any literature that said how. Any instructions? All suggestions will be appreciated.

there's a lot of Linux tools out there for AVR programming but the problem is usually knowing what you need.

GCC can build for AVR but you will need to find a HowTo to work out how t use it.
i'm afraid i don't know any up to date tutorials. have another search though. thy are out there.

there are Ubuntu packages available for most of the Linux AVR tools.

i recently started kontrollerlab http://www.cadmaniac.org/projectMain.php?projectName=kontrollerlab.
it's not finished but still useful.


dunk.

Install a windoze virtual machine to run windoze software ;D
