No sketches seem to work for me, I do get the weak light thing but it doesn't matter what pin I use for the blink sketch. I have found however that it's possible to use the windows version through wine to make it work. It's not a good solution but until we can figure out the root issue it's all I can do. I have also tried recompiling my tool chain with no avail so am sure it's not a bug in binutils or gcc.

An Uno, I have also DFU programmed it to have an updated firmware. This was because I wrote a sketch that read serial data too quickly and bricked my board. Under a windows virtualmachine though the arduino receives sketches correctly so I can only assume it's not anything to do with the firmware, but I feel I should mention it anyway.

Ok I have recompiled gcc-avr (as its known on arch linux) 4.3.5 and it's not made a difference either. The highs and lows still respond in weird ways. So I am really note sure how to make this work. It used to work but now doesn't, I cant figure it out.

As in gcc itself not gcc-avr?

Ok so I have compiled gcc-avr 4.3.0 and have tried the blink sketch again, but to no avail. I can also confirm that if i switch the high and low statements the LED does stay off.

Ok well first it IS 4.5.X:
avr-gcc (GCC) 4.5.2

So that could be the first indication.

What happens is that after uploading the blink example the led stays on with no other lights blinking, it could be the delay bug you spoke of but I wouldn't know, I am pretty new to this. All I know is that it did work, then it didn't it's possible I applied an update to avr-gcc and thats what caused it to not work.

It is just the basic blink program from the examples I have tried to upload to the board.

The output file was too big to attach so I have pastebinned it: http://pastebin.com/QTnu4PLu

Hi all I am currently trying to get my arduino board to work under Arch Linux 64 bit. Now I have the IDE up and running and I can upload programs (apparently) but when the arduino starts up after being programmed under Linux led13 just stays on and wont do anything.

I have tried loading the standard blink example but this changes nothing.

Now I know it's not the arduino itself, or at least I don't think it is. As the blink sketch loads under windows and runs fine, also any of my custom sketches work as expected.

So I can only conclude at this point that I have configured my arduino wrong for linux.

I enable the ftdi_sio and cdc-asm drivers at boot, I am a member of the uucp group and uploading the blink sketch as root makes no difference.

The version of the software is 22 and the arduino I have is an Uno.

Thanks in advance.

Well that was suitably embarassing....

Thanks for your help and sorry for the evident misunderstanding of electronics.

I can comfirm the L led blinks correctly.

I also do not have a hi res camera but I have taken what I can. I believe that I have gotten the LED the right way around.







I can clarify anything if needed.

When I launch the ide from a windows machine (which is the latest version) the internal led blinks correctly. I am stuck using the 21 revision of the software under linux because I am using a 64 bit os.

I can confirm I have been using 100 ohm resistors for my projects thus far. I used those as its what came with a bundled kit. I have switched to 220 ohm (I believe) and I have as yet had no luck.

Sketches are uploaded correctly so I assume most of the board is working correctly, just not with this.

I am truly stuck now, I am also very curious as to why all of a sudden the board has stopped working since it worked fine until I unplugged it and didn't use it this weekend (of course it didn't do it to itself, I am just perplexed as to what caused it to appear to run fine then just not upon the next start up).

Nope, 13 is the only one that I can determine that does anything.

Changed the blink example to use pin 12 and nothing appears to be happening. I have managed however to make the blink example work on pin 13 if the led is plugged directly into pin 13 and ground. I had to use virtualbox with windows in a virtual machine with the latest arduino software but its some small progress.

However I am still unable to use breadboards or wires.

Its an arduino Uno.

I have been playing about with my arduino since december (a fantastic xmas present) but just recently I bought some new electronics parts (a breadboard and some jumper wires) eager to build bigger ciruits but wanting to check everything worked first I set up the new bread board and completed a basic pin 13-breadboard-resistor-led-ground circuit.

It didn't work, assuming my understanding of the bread board was wrong i tried to form the circuit down a column (instead of across a row) which didn't work either. I then assumed my breadboard was bad and tried the new wires with an old bread board I know works. Nothing happened.

After a series of experiments it turns out the only thing my arduino can do right now is light up an led on pin 13 directly plugged into the arduino. Even if i write the code to make it blink, the led will not turn off. To further assume I was in the wrong I uploaded the blink tutorial code direct from the ide and still the led would not turn off.

Can someone help me restore my arduinos functionality as I very much enjoy developing with my arduino and would like to continue to do so.

Thanks.
