Description of problem:
When installing the arduino package (arduino-0021-1.fc14.noarch.rpm) the incorrect avrdude (in /usr/bin) and avrdude.conf (in /etc/avrdude) are installed.
The correct files (avrdude and avrdude.conf) are to be found on the arduino site.
Just erasing or renaming the avrdude files from the fedora package and replacing them with the files from the original arduino.tgz package will solve all problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rename/erase /etc/avrdude/avrdude.conf and /usr/bin/avrdude
2. unpack original arduino.tgz package
3. copy the avrdude.conf and avrdude bin file from the /hardware/tools/ directory in the arduino package
Communication, identification and recognition of Arduino boards does no longer produce error report ("Yikes, Invalid device signature")
Uploading to arduino board works as it should
I assume from bug 650849 comment 7 that you experience this with the Arduino Uno boards. I don't have an Uno to test against. Could you replace the original avrdude and avrdude.conf, and try changing /usr/share/arduino/hardware/arduino/boards.txt so that it reads "uno.upload.protocol=arduino"?
As requested, I changed back to the original fedora avrdude.conf and avrdude binary included in the Fedora arduino package (arduino-0021-1.fc14.noarch.rpm)
Then I edited the /usr/share/arduino/hardware/arduino/boards.txt file
to show "uno.upload.protocol=arduino " instead of "uno.upload.protocol=stk500"
Plugged in the Arduino UNO board and now uploading worked right away (no error reports. Arduino GUI shows "done uploading".
Perfect ! It feels great to have helped solving a bug after so many years being able to use open and free software. I am glad I have been able to give some back. This tastes for more !!

I have installed the arduino-0021-2 package for Fedora 14.
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update arduino
Yum reported correctly I had edited the boards.txt file (delta does not match installed data).
Have connected my arduino Uno and uploading works righ away.
Seems to me the update package is OK.
