Does anyone else not see the irony in Atmel creating a forum to discuss Linux when for most development they make it very difficult for Linux based developers? Ho hum.

 

(yeah, yeah, I know this is about running Linux on higher end Atmel ARMs - but even so).

That seems like a subversive comment from a moderator. 

What's the basis for your assertion?

I dare say Cliff is referring to atmel- studio being Windows only especially when the competition have offerings that work on Linux and some on OSX as well.
Subversion was not involved.

I agree, using Visual Studio for their interface is like handcuffing yourself to a bloated memory hogg of a framework that runs as fast as a slug in molasses with the added benifit of only running on one operating system. I almost rather use a standard text editor and command line compile. Its Wirth Law... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wirth%27s_law

5 months later no Linux news, at all?

 

The new KDE desktop is turning a few heads, including mine. I suspect it is better than Windows 10 for my needs.

Looking to setup hardware and software on Windows 10 PC to code and program Atmel Arm 9 (ATSAMA5D31A) utilizing Linux.

 

Need recommendations for the most useful software and hardware interfaces.

 

Have Atmel Studio loaded ... could not find this processor in the lookup list to create a project?

Respectfully

Sama5 is not arm9, it is cortex a5. You use linux for linux developement, so I'd suggest you load up linux either native or on a virtual machine. Atmel Studio is for avr and cortex m devices. It is of no use to you.

Some for Linux via Windows :

  • ARM DS-5
  • VisualGDB (BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, CubieBoard)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio (BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, Intel Edison)
