Building OpenChronos for TI eZ430-Chronos on Debian

I just have received my eZ430-Chronos two hours ago, and it is already running OpenChronos.

There were a few gotchas:

  • The OpenChronos repository is at and not at anymore.
  • The current openchronos builds with debian’s gcc-msp430 just fine (wheezy/sid unstable with 4.5.3~mspgcc-20110716-3) . No need for external repositories.
  • You might want to install mspdebug to flash the chronos manually
  • mspdebug might spit out strange error messages if you don’t have permissions. Flashing as root did the trick for me.

You might wish to add the following rule into /etc/udev/rules.d/46-TI_launchpad.rules:

I hope that helps a bit
