I am trying to program a sketch into a Pro Mini following the instructions at How to program a Pro Mini with another Arduino - Exhibition - Arduino Forum
I get the following error message.
Arduino: 1.6.7 (Linux), Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini, ATmega328 (5V, 16 MHz)" Sketch uses 3,354 bytes (10%) of program storage space. Maximum is 30,720 bytes.

See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions. This report would have more information with "Show verbose output during compilation" enabled in File > Preferences.
I am using IDE 1.6.7 Would a different version help?
The pins on the header are in slightly different order from the Pro Mini board on this website.
Tried programming using IDE 1.6.6-r5 and still have the same errors
I am on Linux.
