Hello Im new to this forum and stuck already on the first example of the book AVR programming by Elliot Williams.
Im using Debian with the Arduino IDE version 2:1.0.5+dfsg2-4.1 plus an genuine Arduino as well as an knockoff (so I tried it with both). On my breadboard I have an Atmega88 and everything is according to the book page 28.
I was able to turn the Arduino into an ISP and load it with any other example code. So it seems to work but when I try to upload the blinkLED sketch I got this one:
avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x14
avrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x01
avrdude: stk500_initialize(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x10
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
avrdude: stk500_disable(): unknown response=0x12
I tried this also with an USBTinyISP but thats another story.
Whats the problem here?
