Arduino fresh install on Mac OS not working

Hi all,

I made a fresh install of my Edison development environment via m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.app on my Mac.

When trying to compile, e.g. the Blink application ( after having installed the Edison Board via the Boardmanager ), I do get

"i586-poky-linux-g++: error: core.a: No such file or directory"

There are comments on simular problems when running Arduino-IDE on Windows with spaces somewhere in the path. Well with the Installer for Mac OS I don't have many choices where to install.

Anyone seen this or has an idea how to solve this?

Thanks a lot

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Could you please tell us which version of Arduino IDE you are using? Also, did you use the Integrated Installer to install the Arduino IDE? If this is the case, could you please try to download the latest IDE from the Arduino website? Once you have it in your computer, follow the same process, go to Board Manager and install the Edison package. Let us know your results.

Regards,

Pablo

Hi Pablo,

I have the Arduino IDE which was installed automatically by m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.app from https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.tar.gz https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/m_iot_dev_kit_2015.0.026.tar.gz

This Intel provided installer did install Arduino IDE 1.6.5

As recommended by you, I did download and install the most current one from the Arduino website. There they have V1.6.8

As it looks, the compile worked but still have to validate the upload of a compiled sketch.

Is is possible that the Integrated Installer has a bug?

Hi Patrick,

I'm not sure if that's the case, because I was able to use my Edison board on Mac OS after downloading and running the Integrated Installer. In any case, I would suggest you to try with the manual process. Check these two links and follow the instructions.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-firmware-with-flash-tool-mac https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-firmware-with-flash-tool-mac

https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-drivers-intel-edison-board https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-drivers-intel-edison-board

You shouldn't have any issue with the FTDI drivers, so you can jump to install the firmware with the Flash Tool Lite.

Regards,

Pablo

Hey Patrick, the Integrated installer is pointing to an older version of the Arduino IDE, we hope to have that fixed soon to point to 1.6.8. It wasn't clear from your reply, did moving to 1.6.8 fix your problem?

Yes, going with 1.6.8 fixed the problem!
