Support for other operating systems –
As a Linux user I have been having a hard time figuring out how to either hard-flash or soft-flash the Max-PIC/PIC-Fun without having to get a hold of Windows. Does anyone have any experience with hard- or soft-flashing from Linux?
I also have access to OS X if it is easier to flash using it so a solution for OS X would be nice also, but I would much rather have a solution for Linux.
yes the serial FPC programmer can support linux.
PICPgm - A free and simple PIC Development Programmer for Windows and Linux
Installation: To install the Linux version of PICPgm, extract the tar.gz archiv and just call the shell script install.sh as root:
Note: This is the first Linux version of PICPgm which currently has some restrictions:
PICPgm uses the parport driver to access the parallel port. Hence you need to have access to this driver if you are using a parallel port programmer. If you do not have access use the following command (as root!) to grant access:
chmod a+rw /dev/parport0
parport0 needs to be replaces with the desired port number if it is different than parport0)
2nd way to access the parallel port is to directly use the parallel port I/O address (-paddr option). In this case you need to start picpgm as root (picpgm uses ioperm system call to write to I/O address). This way is not recommanded!
The configuration file pgmifcfg.xml needs to be in the users home directory.
