Well, I have a pile of data sheets, a pile of parts in unopened poly bags, a programmer, the avr-gcc tool chain seems to be at least minimally alive, and gschem and pcb both seem to be running, too.

So, I know this is little off-topic for this forum, but this seems like the best place to ask. Are their any AVR symbol libraries for gschem and pcb that I should know about?

Thanks,
Dave

I have them for Eagle - don't know if you can convert them

Now that I've discovered where to look, I've found a few. Of those I've found, I don't like them much. But... I have discovered that tools exist that make the process of creating them less painful. So my current plan is to just gin up what I want then then share them with everybody after I am confident that they work. HA HA... then you'll all do it *my* way!!! World domination is great fun, once you get the hang of it.

I have got a ATmega8 symbol for gshem somewhere on a Linux disk. If it is of any interest I can try to find it and share it.

In my opinion existing DIL and *QFP land patterns are good enough so it is actually only gschem symbols that are needed unless you need MLF land patterns which is totally non-existing.

Yes, it is gschem symbols that I am looking for. There is a mega8 symbol in the release library -- not the way I would have done it, but not too bad as it is. Any that you cook up I would encourage you to send to the library maintainers so that they can get shared and save others the work of generation.
