Topic: Compiling the Bootloader (Read 739 times) previous topic - next topic



I have an ATmega329 based board and would like to port the bootloader to it.

After following the bootloader link to Berlios, I couldn't figure out how to download the whole project or even individual files.

They were viewable, so to get started I copy-pasted ATmegaBOOT_168.c and the Makefile to my system.

Running 'make' with Win-Avr already installed resulted in an error complaing about a '%'.

Makeing targets 'clean', 'all', and 'ATmegaBOOT_168.elf' also failed complaing about a '%'.

Maybe the copy-paste converted tabs to spaces?


1. How can I download a bootloader zip (or other) archive from Berlios?

2. Are there any tricks to compiling the bootloader?

Thank you!


I think this happens when there's a : in the name of a target, e.g. if you're specifying absolute paths with drive letters on Windows.  Do you have any paths like that in your Makefile?  Can you post the full text of the error?


My guess is that the makefile copy-paste has destroyed the tabs which are special to make.  The error line in the makefile refers to ISPFUSES which does have colons.

Can you tell me how to download rather than copy-paste files from Berlios (or somewhere else)?

The original output of make is shown below.  I used the full path just to prove that the WinAVR version of make is being used although just using 'make' has the same result.

$ C:\WinAVR\utils\bin\make ATmegaBOOT_168.c
Makefile:73: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.

$ C:\WinAVR\utils\bin\make clean
Makefile:73: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.

$ C:\WinAVR\utils\bin\make all
Makefile:73: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.

$ C:\WinAVR\utils\bin\make ATmegaBOOT_168.elf
Makefile:73: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.
