I'm sure my issue demonstrates my lack of experience with embedded linux, the AVR32 tool chain and cygwin but I'm out of options at this point so here it goes...
I originally got cygwin installed manually (so I could get nano) and was able to create an example to build for AVR32 linux - i.e. hello world.
Somewhere along the line I installed WINAVR and when I went back into cygwin to make my AVR32 linux example I got some error related to WINAVR make.
I uninstalled WINAVR, and tried again with no success. Then I tried reinstalling the BSP1.0 with my existing cygwin environment which didn't work either. Then I tried completely removing BSP1.0 and reinstalling which didn't work either.
Then I tried completely removing cygwin and BSP1.0 and reinstalling both fresh. However now when I try to build my example the bash shell complains that it can't find the make command.
bash: make: command not found
I could use some help here ...
my next step is to try to unistall and manually clean out my registry to really remove cygwin (in the registry and removing the c:\cygwin folder and try fresh again.
Any idea what might be wrong and more importantly how I might be able to correct it.
