AVRMini and OS X


  1. Dowload the following packages (the version numbers you find may be newer, and will probably work just as well but these are the latest ones I've tested with.
  2. Compile and install binutils:
    		bzcat binutils-2.14.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
    		cd binutils-2.14
    		./configure --target=avr --disable-nls [--prefix=/opt/avr]
    		[sudo] make install 
  3. Compile and install gcc:
    		bzcat gcc-core-3.3.2.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
    		cd gcc-3.3.2
    		./configure --target=avr --enable-languages=c [--prefix=/opt/avr]
    		# Need -no-cpp-precomp option or you'll get errors
    		make CC="cc -no-cpp-precomp"
    		[sudo] make install
    		# add /usr/local/bin to your path if it's not there already
    		#   -- the example fixes your path for a .tchsrc, but you may
    		#	instead have to do this for either the .cshrc or the .login file
    		echo 'setenv PATH ${PATH}:/usr/local/bin' >> ~/.tcshrc
  4. Compile and install avrlibc:
    		bzcat avr-libc-1.0.4.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
    		cd avr-libc-1.0.4
    		# edit doconf and change the PREFIX if necessary
    		[sudo] ./domake install 
  5. Compile and install uisp:
    		bzcat uisp-20040311.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
    		cd uisp
    		./configure [--prefix=/opt/avr]
    		[sudo] make install
