 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,
I have just received my Arduino today, and I almost have it all working.
I am not using the Java IDE since I like using Makefiles instead to keep things more organized.
I've build the AVR toolchain using crossdev, and I have a Makefile building the hex file without any errors.
My only problem is when uploading the hex file.

The parameters being passed to avrdude during upload.
Code:
/usr/bin/avrdude -q -V -p atmega328p -C /etc/avrdude.conf -c stk500v1 -b 19200 -P /dev/bus/usb/004/001 \
                        -U flash:w:build-cli/helloworld.hex:i
avrdude: ser_open(): can't set attributes for device "/dev/bus/usb/004/001": Inappropriate ioctl for device
make: *** [raw_upload] Error 1

dmesg output when connecting the UNO.
Code:

I have a feeling I need to do something with udev, but I'm not sure what.
Has anyone else experienced this same error?

There doesn't seem to be a driver associated with the usb port, and you're trying to have avrdude talk to the raw usb device. As I don't have an uno, I unfortunately can't tell you what the kernel should spit out.

• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

On my Ubuntu system, the Arduino Uno is listed as /dev/ttyACM0, think this should apply for all distros. Have you tried using -P /dev/ttyACM0 ?

That was the issue! I just compiled the right driver and it made a /dev/ttyACM0 for me. Everything works now. Thanks!

Can you share how you compiled the right drivers please ?
