Hello,

I just put together a nice package for avr users to use under Mac OS X. The zip includes avr-gcc with librarys etc, avrdude, a shell script for the creation of makefiles and a installation how to. It's available for download at

http://www.gjn.se/gj/pdf/avrtool...

For thouse of you who don't know:
The avr-gcc package for compilation, assemblation and linking.
The avrdude is used for DL:ing the pgm to your micro.
The script file is for creating makefiles.

Hope this can be useful to anyone. If you find any flaws etc, drop me an e-mail.

Does this require the gcc toolchain to be already installed on the Mac?

Hi Jim,

It doesn't take the gcc toolchain to install the avr-gcc package as it comes in a installation pkg-file. It's already compiled and ready to go.

As for avrdude, yes you need the gcc toolchain for this. The easiest way would be to install the development package that comes with the computer.

I've never been able to figure out how to install the development package that comes with the computer. I've looked all through the disk and could never find anything I was confident in.

Hello again Jim,

What system are you running? Myself, I'm running a Mac OS X Tiger, and this is how you install the development package on a tiger system (I'm not shure about the filename etc on a Panther or leopard system).

First, put your "Mac OS X Install Disc 1" into your mac and let the system mount it. There should be a "Xcode Tools" folder, go there. Inside should be 2 folders, a pdf file and a .mpkg file. What you need to do is to run that file, named "XcodeTools.mpkg". This will install gcc etc, including Xcode editor, Interface builder, java, openGL etc. That is all you need to do.

With that concluded you just open a terminal window and install the avrdude according to the instructions.

Hope it helps!

I'm running 10.3.9 and will check the install disks.

Thanks for that information!
