Not following what you’re saying.
Instructions are here:
First, there’s a few changes to the firmware that havent been commited to master yet. One shows you download locations of library files, other one is a fix for the warning for the tc74 temperature chip.
I tried using windows box arduino ide and cygwin and make and that didn’t work and tried just uploading just the sketch. Couldn’t get any of that to work.
Ended up building a debian linux machine, install arduino ide (I used the same install, workspace, and library paths as what’s in the satnogs makefile, just substituted my username)
Download and extract the 3 libraries mentioned in the readme, extract make in the path it calls for in the controller makefile, then from your satnogs firmware folder, Edit the makefile to reflect correct paths
If youre programming the pro mini via ftdi, the pro mini has to be unplugged from the controller and there’s a baud setting you have to put in the makefile 57600 that’s not mentioned in the readme.
AVRDUDE_ARD_BAUDRATE = 57600
run make, and run make upload and that should flash the arduino. This is assuming you already have a bootloader installed. Most already come with blink sketch installed. If you power up the pro mini when you first get it, you should have a power led and the other led should blink. If you don’t have the one led blinking, it may not have a bootloader installed and/or the default blink sketch.
Also make sure you’re using the 5v version of the pro mini and don’t use a cheap chinese clone. The one I got from Amazon burned the regulator up on the pro mini without it even being connected to the satnogs controller board. Order it from sparkfun or reputable dealer otherwise you’ll have to feed in your 5v from a different source and cut the tracer on the pro mini to disable the regulator.
Think I also had to give my login account access to the usbtty interface from cli
Also if your ftdi doesn’t have a dtr pin, you have to hit the reset button on the pro mini right before you run the make upload command
