A simple demo program is supplied in the directory
Open a terminal window and navigate to this directory. You should be able to compile the example with the supplied Makefile by typing
If make completed successfully, connect your programmer (or Orangutan SVP) to your computer and your target device, and turn on the target’s power. If you are using the Pololu USB AVR Programmer, the green USB LED should be on, the red LED should be off, and the yellow LED should be blinking, indicating that the programmer is ready. Type
If your controller was successfully programmed and you are not using a Baby Orangutan, you should hear a short tune, see the message “Hello!” on the LCD (if one is present and the contrast is set correctly), and the LEDs on the board should blink.

This means that when you try to program, the erase operation will take longer than AVRDUDE expects and AVRDUDE will interpret this as an error. The workaround is to find the AVRDUDE configuration file,
