The new Xcode seems to have overwritten my OSXAVR. Has anyone tried installing it on Leopard yet? And, if so, did it work?

Well, I have not tested every part of the toolchain yet but everything seems to work alright.

Are you having problems?

You can have my mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off of it.

The AVR project templates don't appear in the list of types. I've tried installing several times but to no avail.

I never used XCode as an AVR IDE so I didn't notice that. XCode received a major update so I would expect the undocumented plugin and template mechanisms to change a bit.

I've got osxavr running great on leopard with xcode 3.0... Install as usual then run this installer to put the templates in the right place. The template location has changed in the newest release, so this puts them in the right place.

What do you use as your development environment?

vi - The greatest text editor ever

I have never really gotten into IDEs for some reason. I use vi for editing and make to handle my builds.

Glad you found it useful. Took me a bit to find it, even though the location was right there in the xcode 3 release notes. :oops:

I've been a long time lurker, first time poster now. I'm gonna really get into AVR's now. Though i just need to get some crystals and capacitors now. (Ceramic resonators apparently don't work well for RS-232 comm as I only got gibberish :( )

If theres any other parts of it that seems like it doesnt work well, let me know and ill see if I can work it out :p

There are several reasons why you might have got gibberish, the most common of which is to forget to set the fuses correctly (e.g. the default is to use the internal oscillator, usually at 1MHz).

I went through just about every fuse combination i could do. I also tried 3 different speed resonators (4Mhz, 8Mhz and 14.74Mhz) I ALMOST got the 14.74mhz one to work, but it would get close enough to be a few chars off from what i was wanting it to send... I finally gave up on it for a bit.
