I started using Eclim a couple days ago, and kept running into Error running command: pyflakes <path to my code>, when my files contained more than one syntax error/warning. After a bit of googling I discovered this bug, which suggests that the version of pyflakes in Debian isn’t compatible with Eclim. Sure enough, removing the the .deb package (apt-get remove pyflakes) and installing it from pip (pip install pyflakes), fixed it.

I just got my Orangutan SVP-1284, which uses the Atmega1284 processor. Getting your dev environment setup on Ubuntu is pretty easy: 1) Download the prerequisites you need (http://www.pololu.com/docs/0J20/2) sudo apt-get install avr-libc gcc-avr avra binutils-avr avrdude 2) Download the latest Pololu library from: http://www.pololu.com/docs/0J20/3 3) Extract the library, and install it. From the extracted directory run: sudo cp *.a /usr/lib/avr/lib/ && sudo cp -r pololu /usr/lib/avr/include/ 4) As of version 5.

Well, I’ve moved on from LEDs, and built a little robot. It’s powered by a 16MHz Atmel chip, and currently you have to hard code instructions into it, but I’m hoping to add wireless control soon. Your browser does not support the HTML5 video tag.
