Hi all, I have purchased and assembled this well known component tester designed by Markus Reschke, Markus Frejek and Karl-Heinz Kuebbeler based on an AVR ATmega328. It is working fine, but did not came with the latest firmware version and I would like to take advantages of the nice improvements recently made by Markus. I am working on Linux, have downloaded the latest firmware version from https://github.com/svn2github/transistortester/tree/master/Software/Markus and would like to install it on the tester. I have configured the files to my needs but I don't why I cannot program the ATmega328 ! The Makefile works, generates all .o .eep .hex .lss and .map files but stops at this point, it does not generate any error, but also does not process 'avrdude' nor the rest of the Makefile. Here are the last lines produced by 'make -f Makefile' : ### avr-gcc -mmcu=atmega328 -Wall -mcall-prologues -I. -Ibitmaps -DF_CPU= ... avr-gcc -mmcu=atmega328 -Wl,-Map=ComponentTester.map main.o user.o pau... avr-objcopy -O ihex -R .eeprom -R .fuse -R .lock -R .signature Compone... avr-objcopy -j .eeprom --set-section-flags=.eeprom="alloc,load" --chan... avr-objdump -h -S ComponentTester > ComponentTester.lss AVR Memory Usage ---------------- Device: atmega328 Program: 20554 bytes (62.7% Full) (.text + .data + .bootloader) Data: 207 bytes (10.1% Full) (.data + .bss + .noinit) EEPROM: 608 bytes (59.4% Full) (.eeprom) ### I am new to Linux, AVR, makefiles and can't find a clue to go on. Any help will be welcome ! Thank you Best regards

Seems to me like it works as intended. Makefiles are based on rules. If you don't explicitly specify a rule, it will apply the first one in the Makefile, which is 'all'. Then it recursively applys all rules that are specified as dependancies of 'all'. This doesn't include the rules 'upload', 'dist' or 'clean', so those are not applied.
Alright, but how to specify that all rules must be applied ? I found no info in 'man make' ! Do I have to modify the Makefile itself, and how ?

make [/C] you generate the program. When you want to burn it onto a device, you write: [Code] make upload
If you want to put everything that's relevant for providing the sources to someone into an archive, you do
And for removing anything that was generated, you do
Why would you want to do all of that every time?
Hello Rolf, Got it ! Thank you for these clear explanations. Best regards
