5. Compiling AVRDUDE

Checking the currently installed version of AVRDUDE

Run the following command:

avrdude -v

You need at least version 5.6 for ATmega328P support.

Downloading the source code

Get the latest version from the AVRDUDE web site.

Unpacking the archive

Run the following command:

tar xzf ~/Desktop/avrdude-5.6.tar.gz
cd avrdude-5.6

Compiling and installing AVRDUDE

Unlike the other packages, AVRDUDE does not need to be specifically told to compile for the AVR. So you should be able to compile it with no special options:

./configure
make
sudo make install

Optional: configuring earlier versions of AVRDUDE for the ATmega328P

The following configuration file will let versions of AVRDUDE before 5.6 work with the 328. Just copy these definitions to the end of avrdude.conf, which can be found in /etc, /usr/local/etc, or (on Windows) C:\WinAVR-*\bin. This will be most useful for Windows users, since the latest WinAVR does not support the 328.
