Topic: Bad protocol in Boards.txt file for arduino ethernet [Solved] (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

javacasm

I can't download any program to the arduino ethernet using a ftdi-board (sparkfun ftdi board) using the board.txt file  from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardEthernet (http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/boards.txt.zip).
I obtain a "Yikes! invalid device signature" error when download the program.

I'm using the 22 ide from the standard ubuntu repository for Ubuntu 11.10


If I change the upload.protocol  in the board.txt file from stk500 to arduino everyting works ok

Bad line: ethernet.upload.protocol=stk500
Good line: ethernet.upload.protocol=arduino

IMHO Somebody should change the board.txt file

Cheers
