After changing my Tasmota ESP8266-dev environment to Visual Studio Code I ran into the problem that I always got the following error when trying to recompile my customized Tasmota firmware:
c:/firstname.lastname@example.org/bin/../lib/gcc/xtensa-lx106-elf/4.8.2/../../../../xtensa-lx106-elf/bin/ld.exe: .pio\build\sonoff-sensors\firmware.elf section `.text' will not fit in region `iram1_0_seg' collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status *** [.pio\build\sonoff-sensors\firmware.elf] Error 1
Seems the problem is introduced by the updated Platformio 4 environemnt which ships some updated libraries that do not comply to the ESP-requirements. To work with Platformio 4 it is necessary to adapt the platformio.ini to match the following configuration:
[platformio] build_dir = .pioenvs [env:myesp8266env] platform = email@example.com ...
