AVR-GCC package not executing correctly

I am currently studying about programming Atmega32 controller using C.
So I tried to get the avr-gcc toolchain with avrdude working on my Fedora 20.

I created a folder named "avr" in my home directory, a subdirectory called "toolchain", and unzipped both avr8-gnu-linux_x86 and avrdude packages into it. Then from the avrdude folder i did the following :-

./configure --prefix=~/avr/toolchain/avr8-gnu-linux_x86
make install

and avrdude executable was created in the prefix i specified.
I also set the appended the $PATH variable with the bin folder inside avr8-gnu-linux_x86 folder.

Two sets of executables are made. One in the avr8-gnu-linux_x86/bin folder (with the avr prefix ,e.g avr-gcc) and other in the avr8-gnu-linux-x86/avr/bin folder (without avr prefix eg. gcc,ld)

The problem is that whenever i try to use the gcc (without the prefix) compiler give along with the package, it shows me an error, "error trying to exec cc1".

I searched on the net for an answer but this error seems to be very general. So is there any way to get rid of this w.r.t my specific situation?

Please tell us what distro you are using and where you got those files.

Normally you use the avr-gcc executable to compile your program.

For more information on the avr-libc, avr-gcc, avr-binutils and avrdude look here.

Also a good place to look is
