this posting was frirst posted at hardware-section, but I think the problem also can be a software-problem. So I try it with the same posting here, sorry :-(
Environment: Duemilanove, ATmega328, USB-cable, openSUSE 11.2
As a nubee, at first I try to load the Blinker-Programm to the brand-new duemilanove. The green-LED is on, the PIN13-LED is already blinking since the first connection to the PC's USB-Port (without having loaded anything before).
Pushing the shift-button while uploading gives the following output:

I read the troubleshooting-page and checked all the advised points. I tried the upload with 9600 and 19200 bd as well (configured in the preferences.txt-file).
Furthermore: When I start the Arduino-IDE, the first board of the tools/board-menu is set by default. But with this choice nothing works. So I tried the second choice... with this choice I can start the upload.. but the result is the same. The board is brand new, delivered from watterot-company yesterday, originally seald and treated like a raw egg !!! So I don't consider hardware-damage as cause of the problem.
Any Ideas ??
Thanks in advance, rafa from Ludwigshafen
