First I just want to give more props to Gert. I love my Gertboard! I have the Ver 1 that I assembled (first major DIY project), and then had to troubleshoot due to my own lack of soldering skills, and then finally fixed and it works like a charm. I don't think I will order a pre-assembled one unless someone feels they are superior in some way as this one really feels like mine!
I am really enjoying programming the ATmega with the Arduino IDE (thanks Gordon). I have made a temperature sensor that reads out to an LCD and a sound monitor that graphs to an LED thanks to the Adafruit Arduino tutorial.
This is what leads me to me current (mild) frustration. It seems that some of the sketches written at Adafruit for the Arduino IDE won't compile when run from the Pi as they don't seem to play well with Linux. Has anyone else had this problem?
I am currently having issues with the "Piccolo" sketch not wanting to compile.
Minor speed bump as all in all, love my Pi, love the Gertboard and love the Adafruit tutorials.
