I’m trying to upload to the Arduino bootloader directly using uisp on my linux dev machine; I like the Arduino board but don’t want to use the IDE. (Which I did get running on my SuSE linux box.) Kernel is 2.6.5-something. The arduino board shows up fine as /dev/ttyUSB0. I have read/write permissions on the device. I’ve got an LED and resistor stuck onto Digital 13, and see the bootloader blinking properly.
I’m setting the serial port up with
$ stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 19200 raw clocal
If I do something crude like “ls > /dev/ttyUSB0” (ouch! I can see the TX light on the Arduino board light.
I’m running uisp thusly:
$ uisp -dprog=stk500 -dserial=/dev/ttyUSB0 -dpart=atmega8
I can see the Arduino TX light blink >>briefly<<, once, then a second or two later, “Programmer not responding”.
I’m assuming that the Arduino looks like stk500 protocol on the serial port? Or am I off in outer space here?
(I’m putting together a how-to webpage for this; I’ll post to this forum when I get it working.)
I’d appreciate any hints, poking-with-stick or aiming in correct direction, or such… thanks in advance!
