I'm trying to compile a simple I2C example to read data from an MPU-6050 accel/gyro sensor, but I'm getting the compilation error:

make: *** [.build_ano/uno/SD/src/utility/Sd2Card.o] Error 1
Make failed with code 2

I've commented-out all code until it compiled without error, and I found that the error is caused by the line:

#include <Wire.h>

So my minimal code to reproduce the error is:

#include <Wire.h>

void setup(){
}

void loop(){
}

Why is this include throwing this error? Why is it trying to compile code for accessing an SD card when I have no code that uses that?

I'm using Arduino 1.6.1 and targeting the Uno. I found I can fix this error by copying version 1.0 of the Wire library into my local sketch folder.

If fixed this by deleting this built-in library

/usr/share/arduino/libraries/SD

but then I received the error:

/usr/share/arduino/libraries/Robot_Control/ArduinoRobot.cpp:25:2: error: 'Serial1' was not declared in this scope
  Serial1.begin(9600);

so I deleted these libraries as well:

/usr/share/arduino/libraries/Robot_Control
/usr/share/arduino/libraries/Robot_Motor

which appear to be buggy in the 1.6 Arduino release. It's still unclear why any of these libraries were being used, since I wasn't including any of their files.

  • Can you elaborate any further on this? I tried these steps and it still isn't working for me. – Andrew Apr 19 '17 at 13:36

Try a later version of the IDE. Try making a completely new sketch (don't just delete things from your current one). It looks to me like it is trying to compile things it shouldn't.

/usr/share/arduino/libraries/SD/src/utility/Sd2Card.cpp

That doesn't seem relevant to your empty sketch.

  • Yes, it's strange, and yes, it's a completely new sketch. – Cerin May 8 '16 at 0:53
  • If a sketch containing #include <Wire.h> and then void setup(){} void loop(){} doesn't compile there is something wrong with your installation. That should compile fine. Try IDE 1.6.8. – Nick Gammon May 8 '16 at 7:13
