Or another tool? On Windows I have used arduino Java IDE. Arduino IDE distribution actually includes a whole WinAVR stack including avrdude.exe, but I didn't pay attention what is actually used. I will reboot to Windows now and check the commandline invocation. On FreeBSD arduino the Java IDE tries to use avrdude and fails the same was as from commandline. > IIRC, the Arduino bootloader requires some special tricks in order to > talk to it. I think AVRDUDE v5.10 still lacks that feature. Could > you try the SVN version of AVRDUDE? AVRDUDE is mentioned for example here http://www.arduino.cc/playground/FreeBSD/CLI as the tool to use. I have tried "-c arduino" or "-c stk500v1" with trunk and I get still the same affect as with 5.10 (Programmer timeout). What maybe important: TX/RX LED on the board don't react at all when trying to use avrdude (there is only a single blink on firmware LED - which means bootloader start). With Windows - TX/RX indicated clearly some activity. > (I don't see a GNATS ID in the subject. Has this been actually filed > via send-pr?) Hm, yes, sorry...
