[Solved] Odroid Go Arduino library broken for latest arduino-esp32

Post by datatrash »

Hello,

I just recently tried to play with the Odroid Go and the Arduino IDE again after some years.
And it seems the library is not up to date.
Whatever I did until now, errors persisted.

I first tried adapting the Odroid Go library files to the newer arduino-esp32 library objects. But that seems to be a rather time consuming task, as I have to look everything up and verify that I don't break things myself.
I then tried V1.0.6 and V1.0.4 of the arduino-esp32 libs. But there were incompatibilities with the current esptool and pyserial, I guess.

I would really like to get this to work again. And by now I think the easiest way to go would be a VM.
Is there some kind of suggested setup for the 2018 Odroid Go library?

What versions of Arduino IDE, arduino-esp32, esptool and pyserial would I need to make this work?

Many thanks for all your help

and kind regards,

dt

The latest confirmed version seems to be Arduino IDE 1.8.13 on October 2020.

Just for information in case other people struggle:

It seems that the most recent Arduino IDE 1.8.19 and the arduino-esp library V1.0.6 (the last one before support for ESP32-S2 and -C3 was added) work just fine.

Turns out that what I thought was a problem with esptool and pyserial was caused by something different.
The OS I used had Python 2.7 in $PATH but no releaae candidate for pip2 in its repositories.
Esptool from the Espressif Arduino library seems to work with both versions and pyserial was python3, which I did not recognize.
After

Code: Select all

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python python /usr/bin/python3.* 1
everything worked just fine.

Glad to hear that over near years old libraries are still compatible with the latest Arduino IDE version.
The arduino-esp library V1.0.6 version seems to be quite important though.
