MAKE was working fine until this morning ...
I used it to create a new version of the ATmega2560 bootloader.
now I receive error message from MAKE when using the makefile.mak and stk500boot.c in the arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\bootloaders\stk500v2 folder.
message is : make (e=2) the system can not find the file specified
make: *** [gccvesion] error 2
I re-installed a new version of MAKE ( ming32 ) .. same results.
I am using WINDOWS-7, and just re-loaded the Arduino IDE 1.8.2
I am trying to re-generate a new Hex file for my own mega2560 12Mhz design.
checked System properties - advanced- Environment Variables -System Variables ..
and added the path to include the \bootloaders\stk500v2 folder ...
there is something very basic that I am missing ... since nothing I corrects the problem.
Make is being executed correctly .. so how do I find out what file is missing ...?
tried explicit: MAKE -f makefile with -d ( debug)
getting message : .... No implicit rule found for 'makefile'
any help will be appreciated.
