 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

I made a Sanguino on breadboard with ftdi cable connection. When i try to upload some sketch, i receive an error:
Code: (a)
avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000
avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
         Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
         this check.

My system is
Code: (uname -a)
Linux MyPC.home 2.6.35.10-74.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Dec 23 16:04:50 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have Arduino Duemilanove and it works with my system, without any changes ( naturally i have selected the board from menu ).
On Windows there are no problems - neither with Arduino nor Sanguino.

Here is a list of related packs

Bootloaders suck!

FTDI cable = RTS instead of DTR right ?

Auto reset has never worked for me with that cable on linux. But I haven't tried it for quite a while. There's some info on the playground though.

I suggest getting an ISP programmer and forget worrying about bootloaders.

• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!
