CDK4AVR stands for Cross Development Kit for Atmels AVR RISC processor serie and should support your development with a comprehensive Assembler and C development environment for even this processor familie under Linux. It will present only free of fee tools, so you can use it without risks. Further you will find some useful OS projects and related sample code all arround AVRs inside of the example packages.
CDK4AVR collects all programms and development tools in one directory (/opt/cdk4avr) and will try to present an easy to admin installation.
My intention for CDK4AVR is / was to provide a full featurd tool chain distribution of all the free accessible resources, because the most stuff is scattered to the wide of the whole Internet and only compileable by wizards or professions.
Each package will be provided as RPM only. It is not necessary to install all packages,but you have to install the base package cdk-avr-base every time you want to use another package. Here is an example for a typical GNU development environment:
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-base-0.3-20031111.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-binutils-2.14-20030906.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-gcc-3.3.2-20031021.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-gcc-c++-3.3.2-20031021.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-gcc-colorgcc-3.3.2-20031021.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-libc-1.0.2-20040229.noarch.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-gdb-6.0-20031019.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-simulavr-0.1.2.20040304cvs-20040304.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-avarice-2.2-20040229.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-uisp-20040207cvs-20040304.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hiv cdk-avr-avrdude-4.3.0-20040229.i386.rpm
Base package -- is needed every time you will use any CDK4AVR package.
NOTE: Users of base packages with version 0.2 and prior have to update to latest version. There was a damaged (t)csh startup script. As a result of an buggy %preun script in previous packages you have to update in two cycles:
[user@host]$ rpm -hUv cdk-nios-base-0.3-20031111.i386.rpm
[user@host]$ rpm -hUv --force cdk-nios-base-0.3-20031111.i386.rpm
