Hi all

I am bit confused. I am using my duemilanove m828p as a programmer. I uploaded the AVRISP example into it and I see the heartbeat.

I am trying to burn a bootloader into an atmega8 in a breadboard without an external clock. by following th instructions here
arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard

trying the connection in avrdude

sudo avrdude -c avrisp -p m328p -b 57600 -P /dev/cuaU0

avrdude: AVR device initialized and ready to accept instructions

Reading | ################################################## | 100% 0.10s

avrdude: Device signature = 0x1e950f

avrdude: safemode: Fuses OK

avrdude done.  Thank you.


Why am I not seeing my target atemga8?

I've not used AVRDUDE in command line mode, so of limited help. However:

sudo avrdude -c avrisp -p m328p -b 57600 -P /dev/cuaU0


As you said you are burning to a meg8 processor why have you specified the m328p processor type in that command?

i was trying to show that arduino isp was exposing my host avr not the target. Anyway i got it working by adding the crystal into the target.

Maybe because I bootloaded chips that have not been bootloaded I could only bootload with a crystal, although the tutorial says you can bootload without a crystal.
