Atmel abandon LINUX developers ?

It is NOT true !

I have some spare time and try to install Studio 2_6 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ( 64-bit ). everything works out of box. Debug also - I use JTAGICE mkII for debuging.

avr32 studio 2.6 WORKS on modern linux distro.

here is what I get in Studio for ENVIRONMENT CHECK RESULTS:

Quote:

AVR32 Studio has checked your system to ensure the proper versions of required utilities are in place.

The built in distribution of "AVR Toolchain" is being used.
avr32-gdb: Found version 6.7.1.atmel.1.0.4
avr32-g++: Found version 4.3.3
avr32-gcc: Found version 4.3.3
avr32-as: Found version 2.20.1.20100303
avr32-nm: Found version 2.20.1.20100303
The built in version of "AVR Utilities" is being used.
avr32program: Found version 4.2.1
avr32gdbproxy: Found version 4.2.0
avrfwupgrade: Found version 2.1.0

You are using the Linux version of the AVR Utilities and AVR Toolchains.

Have fun!

there is problem with FLIP utility - but it can be replaced with this one

I have a STK1000 board, and I'm new in developing with AVR32 under Linux. What else do i need for developing an application. Where boildroot is useful. So can you please give me some guidelines because i'm lost in all that documentation that i've read it.
thanks a lot!

IMHO, AVR32Studio is only useful if you need a debugging environment. If you don't need debugger, I would recommend to use vanilla Eclipse or whatever-ide or text editor you like to use. Just install the Toolchain and dfu-programmer.

Check out the Aery32 project as well to learn more about AVR32 under Linux. Buildroot is for embedded Linux stuff.

P.S. dfu-programmer is used to upload the program into the MCU via USB. All UC3s have a pre-programmed bootloader that dfu-programmer is using to do the job. DFU is one of the many USB classes, and means device firmware update.
