I just purchased my first AVR32 board, the EVK1101, and I'm having a *very* hard time getting started. I can't find any documentation on how to get things setup in Linux. Blazing my own trail, I finally got AVR32Studio setup (there was a broken zip file on the atmel site), and I spent all day sorting through the rpms to get the toolchain working on my x86_64 Gentoo box. Things seem to be working, at least superficially.

Now that those tasks are complete, I'm having difficulty finding out how to run the demo application. It took me a long while to even find the demo application, actually. I got the makefile in AT32UC3B-1.4.0/APPLICATIONS/EVK1101-DEMO/AT32UC3B0256_EVK1101/GCC to give me an output, but I have a feeling that file is meant for the board, rather than for my PC.

I don't know where to find the demo app for the PC side of things, specifically on Linux. Does anyone know?

After I've run that, I'll feel confident enough to start downloading things and creating project in AVR32Studio (though I haven't found any documentation on how to do these things, either).

it's called "AVR32 UC3B Control Panel PC Demo Installer" and you can find it here:http://www.atmel.com/dyn/Products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=4175

Elect reputable scientists!

There is a readme.html in the APPLICATIONS\EVK1101-DEMO directory.

This is an old topic.

Eventually I broke down and installed windows to figure out how things are supposed to work. The instructions for how to get things working on Linux are actually contained inside the windows installer (who does that?). Armed with that knowledge, I was able to get things working on Linux. I was just very disappointed at the state of the documentation for beginners.

You and me both... but keep plugging away, you'll get it. (I'm still learning, but it gets easier...)
