Well, looks like I stumped into the same trouble again (http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,62405.0.html
), but the old solution doesn´t seem to work.
I´ve used Arduino 1.0 to save a sketch into a blank Atmega8 using a UsbtinyISP. When I install the Ic into my standalone board, it works but toooooooo slow. looks like its working with the internal oscilator, and it is not using the installed crystal.
I´ve used this setting in the boards.txt:
And uploaded the sketch using the "File / Upload using programmer" option.
I haven´t burnt a bootloader into the IC, since it´s not required. I understand that the fuses are set ok to work without the bootloader.
I´ve used my osciloscope to test the outputs, that work fine, and tried to see if the cristal is oscilating, but i found just a lot of noise. Connections are tested.
Thanks in advance for your help.
