I have 4 uc32 boards with AnalogShields. I have been programming one set using mpide under Windows 7 for several weeks. Yesterday I was in a classroom with a group of students busily working on a project with Linux (Ubuntu 64 bit) laptops and discovered that the mpide under Linux will not upload a compiled file, such as the "blink" example, to the uc32 boards. The error message is "avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout". I found a couple of threads on the chipKit forum reporting this error but no solution, other than using a Windows machine! The students have only next week to work on this final project for their summer course, for which I had bought these boards. Programs upload to the other uc32 boards just fine under Windows. The students' linux machines communicate with Arduinos using the Arduino IDE without any problem. I have tried 2 versions of mpide (20140821 and 20150204-test) and also uecide-0.8.7z36. All give the same error when trying to upload a program to the uc32. Under uecide, I also tried the alternative method of uploading to the board via pic32prog (instead of AVRDude), and earlier got the message "Board not found" but now am getting "Program flash failed. Resetting board. Upload failed." Is this a known problem with the mpide, linux, and uc32 boards? Do you have a solution? I suppose that I could put Windows onto a few of the students' laptops, or I could have them use Arduinos with the Analog Shield boards, but the extra memory and speed of the uc32 is very desirable for this application.
