I posted some of this on another thread, I have a bit more info now.
Setup: I have the Catalyst Pack with Seeeduino Board I am running XP (Same thing seems to happen on my Vista box too) Board is a Seeeduino v1.1 IDE is Arduino v15 Running on COM4
Board behaviour: The board has three LEDs lit: PWR - Green, on continously TX - Red, flashing (sometimes it stops, not sure if it is anything to do with the issue). Slot 13 (?) - Green, flashing. This isnext to R5 (I think it is the Slot 13 LED, when I put an LED in Slot 13 it flashes at the same rate).
What I have done so far: I followed instructions as per the getting started (including setting up the USB Serial driver) IDE is using the Diecimila/Deumilenove w/Atmega168 setting If I click on the serial monitor I get a series of boxes (says it is 9600 baud). If I load the blink example and click "upload to board" the IDE hangs.
IDE says: Uploading to I/O Board Console output (when running from run.bat) says: "Binary sketch size: 976 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)" IDE is frozen (even Event Dispatch Thread), avrdude.exe is running Killing avrdude.exe frees up IDE. IDE output area then displays "Binary sketch size: 976 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)" IDE still says "Uploading to I/O Board"
Native lib Version = RXTX-2.1-7 Java lib Version = RXTX-2.1-7 Binary sketch size: 976 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
I am thinking that avrdude is hanging each time. I tried running it from avrgui (a simple windows command line wrapper) and it hung to when avrdude was running.
Stuck and dissappointed at falling at the first hurdle.
Can anyone give my any pointers on how to investigate further? Thanks
