MiniPOV + Crosspack + OSX Lion

by abyssknight on Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:36 am

Just got a minipov3 kit from adafruit, and I'm trying to program it under OSX 10.7 Lion. I bought the USB adapter from adafruit, so I believe it is the PL2303. I installed the driver for OSX as directed, but it didn't work on Lion so I installed a patch from http://xbsd.nl/2011/07/pl2303-serial-us ... -lion.html

When I edit /usr/local/CrossPack-AVR/etc/avrdude.conf and add the delay = 2000; line under the dasa programmer, then the command (avrdude -p t2313 -c dasa -P /dev/cu.PL2303-000013FA) errors out with:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
syntax error at /usr/local/CrossPack-AVR-20100115/etc/avrdude.conf:650
make: *** [program-alt_leds] Error 1


When I try to program it anyways, a few LEDs light up, but not in sequence like the default program. It looks like TX/RX, but it times out and I get:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
avrdude: AVR device not responding
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
         Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
         this check.


avrdude done.  Thank you.

make: *** [program-alt_leds] Error 1

can you verify the minipov is ok by programming it with non-lion?

lion broke -everything- :(

It works under Windows XP, so I presume its a Lion thing. Ah well. :)
