ESP8266 development environment problem
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:55:50 PM »
Hi everyone, I am new starter of esp8266, I tried esp01 esp12 but I can not find good support from the web. Then I found olimex esp8266 from the web, It has board drawings example and much more ! It looks to me really good. Then I get a few of them. But I can not find support to set up developmen environment on linux.
I follow this link, And I can not download or set up toolchain, commands on the website does not work. Also In the website "For less experienced users, we are preparing VirtualBox disk image which to run on Virtual machine on any OS like Linux, MAC OS, Windows, and everything inside is pre-configured and ready to use, hopefully we will upload this image on ESP8266-EVB web page tomorrow as we didn’t manage to complete it today." it is written. But I can not find disk image. Basiclly, I just ask is there any link or tutorial to follow for linux ?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEWoeL1hH2I I also follow this video, but it is for esp01 I assume. ın the make file
https://github.com/nkolban/Sample-ESP8266-App/blob/master/Sample%20ESP8266%20App/Makefile you can find in the link, there are differences to flash. I set up this eclipse for esp01, if you can give me the command line where change should be I can flash esp8266 from olimex also.

flash: all
   $(ESPTOOL) --port $(COMPORT) --baud 115200 write_flash --flash_freq 40m --flash_mode qio --flash_size 4m 0x00000 $(PROJ_NAME)_0x00000.bin 0x40000 $(PROJ_NAME)_0x40000.bin

ın this line, I change 40m to 80 which is frequency, it is quite work, but at the end of flashing it gives time out error. What should I do ?

-- Also you can give me a link where can I find disk image for esp8266 olimex dk.
