68HC11 Microcontroller programming in linux

Hi All,

I am reasonably new to microcontroller design and linux both. I recently bought a board FOX11 trainer from wytec which has a MC68HC11E1 microcontroller. It does come with an IDE that runs on windows and I can use it to program the chip.

But i really wish to use linux. I have Ubuntu 8. I installed the gnu m68hc1x sources successfully from the following site

Its working good.

However, I am completely lost as to how program the chip using linux. there is some documentation here

but its not enough. I dont seem to have the "loader" installed.

How can I do this. Please be as detailed as possible.

I am sorry if I have posted this on the wrong forum. But I am thinking this is a software issue.

Google => ("keyword 1") '68HC11 program loader linux', (no quotes)
and download loader db11 from
Compiles with g++ , stops with missing 'm6811-elf-as'. Don't worry the
loader has been built, when you come to that.
Other keywords for google: 'gnu x tools' 'GNU 68HC11 assembler' 'm6811-elf-as' and
(see page 128)
Seems you also can use 'gdb' for loading, see 3 here
also on page 1 with "keyword 1"
Good luck !
