i now finished my set of shruthi_XT together with 2 different filter boards.
Sadly i did never use Atmel nor open source gnu toolchain before, so I am running into trouble or stuff is simply not working.
I am used to Texas Instruments toolchain, know exactly what to do there, so I figured before i simply get an programmer, i got the olimex ISP which can be directly connected to the 6pole thing on the board, until then no problem.
Then I thought i get the Atmel Studio, since its freeware, import the github project and simply compile and flash it to the atmel IC, then the problems begin
There is no project file on github, at least nothing that i could use simply for import or copy into a new project in the Atmel Studio. So I began using the noramel was explained under firmware:
this did seem pretty straightforward too, of course I simply followed all thesteps and nothing else, now first error I am runnning into:
step:6. Go into the ./avrlib directory and edit the “makefile.mk” file with an editor of your choice.
Look for the following entries:
AVRLIB_ETC_PATH<----------------------------- this line does not exist in my makefile.mk
I guess it has simply something to do with version, but its a bit sad, so I thought i just ask around, maybe someone got the same problems.
THEN NEXT STEPS.
7. Go back into the shruthi-1 directory and start the WinAVR shell by running “sh”.
Then run the following command (the -d option is for showing detailed information only; you can leave it out later):
make -f shruthi/makefile
8. If everything goes well a new directory “build” with a subdirectory “shruthi” will be created. Here you will find a file called “shruthi.hex” which contains the new firmware.
It works i got no error codes but also when i type make nothing at all happens, i just get a new line in the cmd window, i get no status text nor nothing, I do not know if that is normal behaviour, would appreciate some tips there too.
And of course i do not get an build folder so i cannot flash my atmel chips.
I would also appreciate someone sending me some files i can directly flash into the atmel via the 6pole connector, I dont know if it needs hex file or elf file, I am used to elf on the Texas instruments chips, but i got no clue how to get them and how to flash them onto the atmel.
So thanks a lot i will keep this up to date, enough stupid computer work for now, i wanna make some music
