'[PIC] dsPIC development under Linux'

I have some new findings:

1) MPLAB IDE 7.30/MPLAB C30 2.00 work very well under Linux FC4 with Wine
even though the IDE is not working with MPLAB C18. Maybe this is because
that MPLAB C30 is based on GCC (except the optimizer and license
manager).

I've reported the progress here:
http://forum.microchip.com/tm.aspx?m=112347

2) It is not so difficult to get native Linux version of C30 working under
Linux (tested with Fedora Core 4 and Ubuntu 5.10). The optimizer is there
though.

The following thread covers the links to RPM and Debian packages.

Slightly off topic:

I tried to get MPLAB/wine working on Ubuntu-AMD64/EM64T. Seems like
wine doesn't have a 64bit package yet and to install wine by compiling
source also involves chrooting....

I would recomend to stay away from AMD64 / EM64T OS for a while if you
need wine support.

It is reported that MPLAB does not run well on 64-bit Windows XP
professional due to driver issues and other issues.

It is also reported that the PIC USB custom driver does not run
in the new Windows Vista (beta only but will come very soon).

I do not run any thing which needs 64-bit. Therefore I am running
32-bit Linux (FC4 and Ubuntu 5.10) even though I have a AMD64
3000+ CPU powered desktop with 1GB of DDR-SDRAM.

Back to the topic, I will try to get the help from the
the original author of the Debian packages (t-tecjohn) to
build the updated 2.0 MPLAB C30 under Ubuntu.

It is always better to avoid wine if other alternatives
are available. I've tried also building C30 packages
under Cygwin using the FC4 RPMs. The RPM building process
failed. But the resulting binaries do work! I guess I
would like to document a plain tarball approach without
all these RPM and DEB thingy since I do not know how to
handle them.

The good news is that Scott would like to embark on
gpsim support of dsPIC! Please refer to here:
http://forum.microchip.com/tm.aspx?m=94243

So the next thing will be a native optimizer for
MPLAB C30 and an alternative open source libc
(there is already a project started on the libc
front).

Wine runs fine on AMD64 if you have the 32-bit libs installed. Gentoo
has an ebuild for it and it installas fine just as every other program
(I believe it compiles it in 32-bit mode, and it simply uses the 32-bit
libs).

A chroot is not really needed, as long as you have the 32-bit libs (in
/emul).
