Hello to everyone. I'm new on Gentoo. I own an arduino duelmilanove board that i would like to use with gentoo. I was following the next guide contained on this forum (is the best guide that i've seen)

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-72893-view-previous.html?sid=60746a6430fc815fcbe23c25e101ae73

supported by the official instalation documents (that didn't work all steps at least for my know)

http://www.arduino.cc/playground/linux/gentoo

Following the first guide I found two issues that I can not resolve:

1) The first is that after install layman and configure the overlay, adding

/etc/layman/arduino.xml with this content: (saved as UTF-16 with kwrite)

<!DOCTYPE repositories SYSTEM "/dtd/repositories.dtd">
<repositories xmlns="" version="1.0">
<repo quality="experimental" status="unofficial">
<name><![CDATA[arduino]]></name>
<description><![CDATA[arduino overlay]]></description>
<homepage>http://gitorious.org/gentoo-arduino/arduino</homepage>
<owner>
<email>stharwardATgmail.com</email>
<name><![CDATA[Soren Harward]]></name>
</owner>
<source type="git">git://gitorious.org/gentoo-arduino/arduino.git</source>
<feed>http://gitorious.org/gentoo-arduino/arduino.atom</feed>
</repo>
<repo quality="experimental" status="unofficial">
<name><![CDATA[luksans-arduino]]></name>
<description><![CDATA[another arduino overlay]]></description>
<homepage>http://gitorious.org/~luksan/gentoo-arduino/luksans-arduino</homepage>
<owner>
<email>luksanATgmail.com</email>
<name><![CDATA[Lukas Sandström]]></name>
</owner>
<source type="git">git://gitorious.org/~luksan/gentoo-arduino/luksans-arduino.git</source>
<feed>http://gitorious.org/~luksan/gentoo-arduino/luksans-arduino.atom</feed>
</repo>
</repositories>

And modifying /etc/layman/layman.cfg, adding the xml file to the overlays on this way (as official guide says)

overlays : http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/repositories.xml
file:///etc/layman/arduino.xml

and later adding to make.conf

source /var/lib/layman/make.conf
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage $PORTDIR_OVERLAY"

After all when i suppose that the overlay and all the rest is ok, when i do

#emerge arduino rxtx

installs the 0.017 version and not the last arduino 1.0, contained on the oficial web and overlay. On the same way installs rxtx v2.1.7.2-r3 being required rxtx-2.2_pre2 (that is contained on the overlay) or newer to upload code to board on AMD64 systems

2) When it is assumed that everything is installed and properly, I ran #arduino from a terminal
and i obtained

Gtk-ERROR **: GTK+ 2.x symbols detected. Using GTK+ 2.x and GTK+ 3 in the same process is not supported
./arduino: línea 20: 11596 `trap' para punto de parada/seguimiento java -Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel processing.app.Base

for fix (fix that brings me to another error) i installed the java oficial virtual machine "oracle-jre-bin-1.7", and next i did

#eselect java-vm list

Available Java Virtual Machines:
[1] icedtea6-bin system-vm user-vm
[2] oracle-jre-bin-1.7

#eselect java-vm set user 2

and run again

#arduino

And after this nothing happen, except that the console left blocked, hanging, and the program, don't start... and i don't know what to do yet xddd, and i can't program arduino from linux xdd


Please, Can anyone help me? Any help will be grateful.

2nd) Issue solved, but not the 1st)

Incompatibility with oracle-jre-bin-1.7


Solved installing sun-jre-bin-1.6

and

#eselect java-vm list
Available Java Virtual Machines:
[1] icedtea6-bin system-vm
[2] oracle-jre-bin-1.7 user-vm
[3] sun-jre-bin-1.6


#eselect java-vm set user 3 (for my case)

Well my problem now is: Why don't works the overlay? I need install the rxtx-2.2_pre2 or newer and optionally the latest version of arduino v1.0

Arduino 1.0 is now in the main portage tree, so you do not need to do anything with layman. You will need to add
Code:
=dev-embedded/arduino-1.0
=dev-java/rxtx-2.2_pre2

to /etc/portage/package.keywords/arduino. Once that is done, a simple
Code:
emerge -av arduino

from a terminal as root should install it for you.

If you haven't installed the toolchain through crossdev, have a look at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-907860.html for some more information.

Good luck!
Paul

I'm having a little trouble with it as well. I can get the software to compile and upload correctly if run as root but if I try to compile as a user I get this error:

/usr/libexec/gcc/avr/ld: cannot find crtm168.o: No such file or directory

I don't understand how this can be the case if it works as root but I did previously use an overlay. I've read up on this error but there seems to be a few arguments as to the pros and cons of soft links. Can anyone give me any advice as to the correct way to fix it?
I'm running Arduino 1.0 on ~x86_64

Well that's a nasty bug in the crossdev script I think.

You need to symlink the correct object files. In my case it was
Code:
ln -s /usr/avr/lib/avr5/crtm328p.o /usr/avr/lib/


Greetings
Update
Here is a link to a thread of the arduino forums where I describe how to get a working toolchain on gentoo/amd64:

Hi,

it seems that the 1.0 of arduino IDE have some portability cases to manager serial devices.
We need to use the version 022 to get it worked. But this version is not in repositories ...

Hi,
I don't use the gentoo version of the 1.0 arduino IDE. I followed the instructions on the arduino website. At last I downloaded their version of the 1.0 arduino IDE and "installed" it into my home. For the IDE this works fine. Please look in the arduino forums since there are several fixes necessary for the bundled-1.0 libraries of the arduino.

greetings
