AVR-Ada 1.2.2 RPMs for Fedora 19

AVR-Ada 1.2.2 RPMs for Fedora 19 (i386 and x86_64) are now available in my fedora.ada-language.com repository.

As before, create file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-adalanguage.repo with contents:

name=Tero's Fedora RPM repository for Ada packages

And run:

sudo yum install avr-gnat avr-ada-lib --nogpgcheck


  • The used GCC version is 4.7.2. I know that there is 4.7.3 also available, but I haven't tested that yet, so 4.7.2 is used for now.
  • The packaging is not done by the book since building AVR-Ada requires native gcc/gnat 4.7.x and Fedora 19 has native gcc/gnat 4.8.x as default. I have used custom gcc/gnat 4.7.x binaries, compiled on Fedora 18, for package building.
  • The release contains two of my patches, which are not in the official AVR-Ada 1.2.2 repository.
    • The first patch reverts AVR.UART behaviour back to AVR-Ada 1.2 (=interrupt mode also works)
    • The second patch fixes linking errors with libavrada.a, so that all boards get correct CPU frequencies and other code.
  • The RPMs are unofficial in every possible way and they are not endorsed by Fedora or AVR-Ada projects. If there are bugs, complain to me (tero.koskinen@iki.fi).
