I try to communicate with my Arduino clone (Elegoo Uno R3) from Arduino IDE (v1.8.4 installed by dnf from repos) at Fedora 27. Compiling and upload of normal example code works well. However, as I try to start any serial communication (e.g. for debug), the compiler fails returning following segfault:

"/usr/bin/avr-gcc"  -Os -g -flto -fuse-linker-plugin -Wl,--gc-sections -mmcu=atmega328p  -o "/tmp/arduino_build_407070/AnalogReadSerial.ino.elf" "/tmp/arduino_build_407070/sketch/AnalogReadSerial.ino.cpp.o" "/tmp/arduino_build_407070/../arduino_cache_983152/core/core_arduino_avr_uno_1621df717313d057c92202babd71649a.a" "-L/tmp/arduino_build_407070" -lm
lto1: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/> for instructions.
lto-wrapper: fatal error: /usr/bin/avr-gcc returned 1 exit status
compilation terminated.
/usr/lib/gcc/avr/6.3.0/../../../../avr/bin/ld: error: lto-wrapper failed

exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

I found similar issue here https://github.com/sudar/Arduino-Makefile/issues/486 However, that solution deals with Arduino-Makefile software that is little bit complex for me.

I would appreciate any help either how to solve the segfault itself, or how to easily use Arduino-Makefile (I would like to compile from Arduino IDE or any user-friendly IDE).

    What IDE version are you running? And how did you install it?

  • How did avr-gcc find its way into /usr/bin? How exactly have you installed Arduino? Are you intentionally using an avr-gcc different than the one packaged with it, or is that an accidental case of a system version overriding Arduino's? Commented Jan 15, 2018 at 22:49
  • Edited the question - version 1.8.4, installed from repos. I didn't setup any magic with avr-gcc - I did not change anything.

    Do not install from repos. Download the official tarball from Arduino.

    Thanks for help! The official Arduino binaries did the trick :) Could you please transform the comment into an answer as I could then upvote and accept it? Thanks a lot.

There's a new version of the avr-gcc package that's currently available in the updates-testing repo that should fix the problem. You can install/update it by enabling the updates-testing repo, or grabbing the rpm from koji (https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1013122)
