I am running OS X 10.4.11 and arduino 012
I just bought an avrispmkii with the hopes of using it to program my arduino diecimila.
I followed the http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/Programmer directions exactly and it didn't work.
Everytime I try to program the board the programmer light starts out in green and then goes to orange and is stuck forever (never finishing).
It is not clear if I need to install other applications/drivers in order for me to use the avrispmkii.
I followed the ladyada tutorial and installed AvrMacPack.
Still no change.
Whether I try burning the bootloader or programming a sketch the avrispmkii gets stuck. I guess I thought this would be more straightforward.
Is there another installation or configuration step I am missing???
