I've followed this tutorial on how to use the Uno to flash a program onto a standalone AVR on a breadboard. It doesn't seem to be loading my program correctly though, so I have a few questions.
(On OS X using avrdude, attempting to program a blank ATMEGA328PU).
1: Does it matter that the ATMEGA328PU on the Arduino is still plugged in? 2: The tutorial said to tell avrdude that the programmer is an arduino. On an avr site one of the guys said that this would cause it to try flash the onboard micro. Is this the case? 3: How can I verify the integrity of the Arduino boot loader on the onboard AVR?
So the program seems to successfully flash on from avrdude, but my program that toggles a LED is not even lighting it up. I am certain the wiring and code is fine. Are there any gotchas to doing this?
