Hello,

I have a v1.1p production board, and I am having problems getting
started. I am running Arch Linux, so some things may be different from
a Debian base. I have not yet tried interfacing the board from a
Ubuntu/Debian workstation.

I have succesfully compiled SIMtrace and its dependencies. The problem
is at no point have I gotten a connection to the board. dmesg shows
nothing and lsusb never shows the device. I have libusb configured on
this system and programmed other avr devices.

I tried to access the board with SAM-BA by following the firmware
page. I only see the red LED faintly light when I'm jumping VCC to
test, but nothing once I reconnect USB. I am right to assume that with
a newly acquired board, I have to flash it with the firmware?

Do you have any clues to help me talk to the SIMTrace board? I haven't
found much explanation of bootloader and reset buttons on the wiki...
Should I simply try with and Ubuntu/Debian workstation?

Thanks,
Mat
