I’m just beginning to use platformio, and have tried compiling and uploading a few projects to several different boards. I’ve been successful with Arduino uno, Adafruit feather 32u4, and Adafruit trinket pro. Two that I’ve had trouble with are teensy 3.6, and Adafruit huzzah esp8266. I can initialize the project for the huzzah (pio init --ide vim --board huzzah), and build the program with make, but “make upload” fails with the following:
PackageManager: Installing tool-mkspiffs @ ~1.200.0
Error: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement ‘~1.200.0’ for your system ‘freebsd_amd64’
I’ve done a search for this and found a couple of previous reports where it was suggested to compile the source for mkspiffs. I compiled the suggested source, copied the executable to ~/.platformio/packages/tool-mkspiffs/, and created a package.json file with the following contents:
“description”: “Tool to build and unpack SPIFFS images”,
But I still get exactly the same error. Is there something I’ve missed?
