:'(I think I've just been hosed. I've been watching with great interest the ongoing development of this project and decided I'd jump in an get my feet wet. So I ordered a Duemilanove. It arrived today and I downloaded the software and started following the instructions. I wish someone would have warned me it won't work on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy. I've now got a nice pretty board with a green light.
Oh well, guess it goes in the junk box with the 68xxxxxx boards. I refuse to leave an LTS system again. I made that mistake and it cost me hours to recover. My only hope is someone will backport a newer compiler some day.
This is a warning to anyone considering using this part on a Linux system, be sure you know the consequences.
