#224705
Good afternoon

After adding https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spark ... index.json to the preferences in the Arduino IDE (1.8.13) and installing the Sparkfun AVR boards, I get below errors when I go back into the boards manager
Code: Select all
Index error: could not find referenced tool name=xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc version=1.22.0-80-g6c4433a-5.2.0 packager=esp32
Index error: could not find referenced tool name=esptool_py version=2.6.1 packager=esp32
Index error: could not find referenced tool name=mkspiffs version=0.2.3 packager=esp32
This is annoying for me, why would I be bothered byESP stuff if I only use AVR?

I've seen that it's in the json so will probably be able to hack it but I would suggest that Sparkfun creates different packages for different architectures.

Notes
Observed it the first time in a normal install of IDE 1.8.5 but could not pin it at that stage. Observed it now while setting up IDE 1.8.13 in portable mode and adding the Sparkfun AVR boards.

Same behaviour for me on macOS Big Sur with Arduino IDE 1.8.13.

I don't have a mac to test on but I just did a fresh install of Arduino 1.8.13 on a Windows 10 PC and a fresh install of the Apollo boards package and I'm not able to replicate your results.

Are you just receiving warnings and your Artemis code compiles and uploads OK or is this stopping you from compiling and uploading too?

I'm also wondering if something is up with your other boards packages and that's causing issues when you go into the boards manager. Have you tried removing all the other boards and reinstalling them?

I'm seeing the same behavior on Mac 11.2.3. This is a fresh install of Arduino, and the only board manager URL I've added is https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spark ... index.json.

It reports that it can't find the tools:

Index error: could not find referenced tool name=xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc version=1.22.0-80-g6c4433a-5.2.0 packager=esp32
Index error: could not find referenced tool name=esptool_py version=2.6.1 packager=esp32
Index error: could not find referenced tool name=mkspiffs version=0.2.3 packager=esp32

And then when I try to build for ESP32 (MicroMod board), that fails as well, since it doesn't have a compiler.

EDIT: Resolved. The problem is that the IDE doesn't know where to get the esp32 tool dependencies. You need to also add the ESP32 Board Manager URL: https://dl.espressif.com/dl/package_esp32_index.json.

I don't know if there's a way to build that directly into the index.

When you do this, however, you'll likely run into https://github.com/espressif/arduino-esp32/issues/4408 (arduino-esp32 projects fail on macOS 11 "Big Sur"). This has been fixed in the ESP32 upstream. I've opened a PR to resolve this. (https://github.com/sparkfun/Arduino_Boards/pull/77)
