I'd like to start to play with my 2 NGW-100's.

I have an Ubuntu 8.04 machine , and would like to install a stable toolchain , any hints pointers ??

I'd like to be able to compile Linux kernel also.

buildroot ftw!!

atmel.no/buildroot

Download that, "make atngw100_defconfig && make", wait and watch your bandwidth go byebye as it gets all the source code and builds it all up.

This builds itself a toolchain before using that toolchain to build an entire root filesystem, including kernel, for you. If you add /path/to/buildroot/build_avr32_/staging_dir/bin to your $PATH you'll be able to use this toolchain outside of the buildroot package.

As I mentioned in another thread, avr32 gcc bugfixes come quickly, packages come slowly. The buildroot boys (i.e. hce) are on the ball and get the bugfixes in to buildroot in good order.

Thanx m8

I decided to follow the Yagarto page
https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p...

And discovered that now both fakeroot & rsync has to be manually downloaded.
The rsync needed can be found in the old-versions dir
http://samba.org/ftp/rsync/old-v...

It is doing the make now .... (We have a 34Mb connection) he..he

vim and cli all the way! Most of my projects are
a) pre-existing and
b) huuuuge
so a heavyweight IDE isn't really an option for me :-)

On openSUSE 10.3. Used to use Ubuntu but it exploded my multiple monitors. openSUSE is my friend.

The Buildroot went well , but i had to get some other missing files from the uclibc site , just dl to the dl dir.

But doesn't one need to download avr32-studio in order to get a "programmer executable ??

All of my work is done on top of Linux so I just generate the executable (compile using avr32-linux-gcc and friends) and ftp it to the target board to run.

If you are making a standalone project then you can use the command line avr32program to talk to the jtagicemkii and download the code to flash.

Don't get me wrong, avr32studio is a nice integrated development and debug environment but there's nothing it does that can't be done from the command line.
