Using Arduino with Ada

AVR-Ada RPMs for Fedora 17 and 18

I finally managed to find time to create AVR-Ada RPMs for Fedora. The packages are available for Fedora 17 and 18 on i386 and x86_64 architectures.

To install them you need to create file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-adalanguage.repo with contents:

[fedora-adalanguage]
name=Tero's Fedora RPM repository for Ada packages
baseurl=http://fedora.ada-language.com/repo/$releasever/$basearch
enabled=1

After that, run as root command:

yum install --nogpgcheck avr-ada-lib

Two notes however:

My AVR-Ada packages will conflict with Fedora's avr-gcc package and you need to remove it first (yum remove avr-gcc).

If you have arduino packages also installed, removing avr-gcc will remove those also. But after you have avr-ada-lib installed, you can install arduino packages again and they will use my version of avr-gcc instead of one from official Fedora repositories.

Another thing is that my packages are not signed. You need to use --nogpgcheck parameter when installing the packages.

When you have installed the packages, you can verify the installation by cloning my arduino-hello-uart repository and compiling it:

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tkoskine/arduino-hello-uart
cd arduino-hello-uart
make

If the compilation is successful, everything was installed correctly.
