The way of setting the links in 3.65-2 worked fine.
I re-installed the packages and the debugger works properly.

Have you seen the debugger getting in and out with udevadm monitor?

It could be some permissions.

@biiiep: Strange, I'm pretty sure I fixed this in pkgrel 2 (I also checked all package files for broken symlinks).
Are you positive this is the one you tried?

$ pacman -Qi microchip-mplabx-bin | grep Version
Version : 3.65-2

$ pacman -Qql microchip-mplabx-bin | while read line; do [[ -h $line ]] && echo -n "$line -> " && realpath $line ; done
/etc/.mplab_ide/mchplinusbdevice -> /opt/microchip/mplabcomm/v3.25.01/lib/mchplinusbdevice
/opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.65/mplab_ide/etc/mplab_ide.conf -> /etc/mplab_ide.conf
/usr/bin/mdb -> /opt/microchip/mplabx/v3.65/mplab_ide/bin/

Let me know if you have different results

Hey Mickael9,

used your packages from a clean install, but ended up with a not-working programmer. I think the symlinks are not properly created after your "hack".

After setting the mplabcomm version again manually things were working fine.

@methril: Thanks, I fixed the issue in another way (since I'm too lazy to update the MPLABCOMM version manually every time :P). Let me know if you encounter issues.

This pkg builds properly and the installed software works for debugging (tested with RealIce and ICD3).

I solved the disk space by resizing the /tmp dir. But I still continue to get this:

sed: impossibile leggere /tmp/yaourt-tmp-leo/aur-microchip-mplabx-bin/pkg/microchip-mplabx-bin/etc/udev/rules.d/99-jlink.rules: File o directory non esistente

by commenting the following line:
# Fix broken udev rules
sed -i '/^BUS!="usb"/c \ACTION!="add", SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="jlink_rules_end"\r' "${pkgdir}/etc/udev/rules.d/99-jlink.rules"

I was able to install the package

Hi Leo72,

It looks like your /tmp drive is full

"Insufficient Disk Space"

A reboot might fix the issue for you or you could try building the package in a separate directory using makepkg rather than an AUR installer.

I got these errors when I try to install the package:

(File o directory non esistente => File or Directory doesn't exist)
I don't use Jlink, I didn't install it on my system. And why I get "insufficient space"?

Hi Mickael,

Just to let you know, the Segger is working fine in your latest PKGBUILD.
Microchip haven't responded yet.

Thanks for all your work!
