Good evening (well, here anyway)!
I've been working on my Arduino for the past couple of hours trying to get a project with the LoL Shield to work, and twice the device has started refusing to program. I have been able to upload to it today, but it just sort of...stopped working. The project does involve writing to the serial port, but I don't think that would have anything to do with it.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on a Dell XPS 15z. I have been programming with /dev/ttyUSB0 until now. I notice when I remove the shield that the "L" led (I believe that's the one hooked up to pin 13) is blinking at an incredibly fast rate, faster than I can count. Here's the verbose output from the terminal (which I started the IDE from): Binary sketch size: 3388 bytes (of a 30720 byte maximum) /usr/share/arduino/hardware/tools/avrdude -C/usr/share/arduino/hardware/tools/avrdude.conf -v -v -v -v -patmega328p -carduino -P/dev/ttyUSB0 -b57600 -D -Uflash:w:/tmp/build7426162321833633659.tmp/fonttest.cpp.hex:i

avrdude done. Thank you.
I've gone through the upload section of the troubleshooting guide and nothing seems to help. If this has been answered in the past, I apologize for asking again and would like to know where I can find the solution, a google search didn't return anything that seemed relevant. Any help you could provide would be appreciated! I'd like to have this thing running in the next couple of days as I need it for an exhibition next week, but if that's not possible it's not a big deal, I'm sure I can figure something else out.
