This project is obsolete. As of the release of Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, an up-to-date version of the MSP430 cross toolchain is available in the standard repositories. For this reason, TMI is no longer maintaining its own MSP430 toolchain, which ultimately use the same upstream source as the new standard packages do. See the TMI Repository page for more information.

As of 2012-08-15, the msp430-gdb package does not install due to a file conflict as shown below.

dpkg: error processing
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/gdb/python/gdb/', which is also
in package gdb 7.4-2012.04-0ubuntu2

As of 2012-08-18, the gdb-msp430 package for Trusty Tahr installs without the above error.
