I’ve just started a micro-controller course, we’re using the MSP430 Launchpad. Luckily enough there is a Linux version of the class software we are using, although it was a pain in the ass to download it because of some ridiculous US customs export Bull Shit.
After running the installer, I went to run CCS and I got an error dialog. After checking around I found this page. So in short don’t forget to install the
ia32-libs & packages if you want a working CCS install(Of course package names vary with the distro!). And as with any other software check for dependencies!
