Lpmsp430fr6989 unknow MCU HEader

Okay working on this some more this morning. I pulled down the latest build of mspdebug as posted in the forum. I would really like to install it in the PIO environment so i can use it integrated with the IDE as advertised. However, PIO is denying make permission to install the executable in the pio directory. Here is some terminal output:

warren@warren-XPS-15-9560:~/Repositories/mspdebug/mspdebug$ make install
mkdir -p ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug/bin/
./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug -m 0755 mspdebug ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug/bin/
make: execvp: ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug: Permission denied
Makefile:124: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 127
warren@warren-XPS-15-9560:~/Repositories/mspdebug/mspdebug$ sudo make install
mkdir -p ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug/bin/
./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug -m 0755 mspdebug ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug/bin/
make: execvp: ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug: Permission denied
Makefile:124: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 127
warren@warren-XPS-15-9560:~/Repositories/mspdebug/mspdebug$ 

I am not a super expert on make so I may not have configured this properly. Anyone got any ideas on how to get this to work?

That is not a problem with PIO. I think that is a problem with system permission. Try to remove ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug folder

Should i remove only the tool-msp430 debug folder? i removed it and tried the make install again and still got permissions error.

  1. Please remove ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug
  2. Build mspdebug in separate fodler
  3. Run platformio run --target upload
  4. Replace new files in ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug

Okay, cloned the repo and build the executable. removed mspdebug and copied the new mspdebug into the .platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug

ran upload… here is the output. Looks like the .so file is not what mspdebug is expecting.,

platformio run --target upload

  3. Run platformio run --target upload
  4. Replace mspdebug_bin in ./platformio/packages/tool-mspdebug with compiled file. Please keep the same name mspdebug_bin.

The entire MSP430 development platform is obsolete?!

What about these dev-kits:

So are you saying we should not expect TI MSP430 support in PIO?
