after many years i have found my Arduino NG (atmega8) again. :) the only thing i have used it for back then was a blinking led.
now i would like to learn how to control a servo with it but i can't get it to work anymore. i have read the troubleshooting guide but without success.
if i connect it to my pc with an usb cable the green power led is on. if i press the reset button the L led blinks quickly for about a second.
if i try to upload the servo sweep example i get this message: Binary sketch size: 2,414 bytes (of a 7,168 byte maximum) avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
i tried to do it on a current ubuntu and windows 7 and the error message was the same.
what could be the reason for this? is the bootloader broken?
edit: most likely it is a driver problem? but where can i get the proper driver for the NG?
