The 2 Minute Guide

Want to get started as quickly as possible? Here we go.

Linux

  1. Get the Atmel Toolchain for your platform. 3.4.3 for AVR 8-bit is the one you want.
  2. Unpack the toolchain somewhere useful. Note down where that was!
  3. Get a copy of avrdude, at least version 6.01.
  4. Grab libkakapo from the git master here: https://github.com/dave2/libkakapo
  5. Unpack it, and “cd examples/blink”
  6. Edit “Makefile”. Remember where you unpacked the toolchain, well edit “TOOLBASE” to suit.
  7. Also while you’re there, edit “AVRDUDE” to point to your avrdude binary.
  8. `make`; and then `make program`
  9. Bask in the awesomeness that is your PE2 LED blinking.
