[time-nuts] PIC Programmer for Piklab in Linux?

Hi Rudolf,

The Pickit2 configuration choices were a bit confusing, so I decided to order a different serial board that contains actual 16550s. Now that I've had a chance to assimilate what I've learned, the problem is traced to the 3 Volt 3243 chips that are in today's serial boards.  After doing more searching, I found a post by Roberto, EB4EQA on QSL.net  where he made an booster to get around the problem.  If the new serial board doesn't work out, Roberto's booster looks simple enough to hack together and I can continue to put off switching from my trusty old JDM.  I may make 2 of them so I can get LIRC pulled off of the motherboard port, as well.

You can use Pickit2 usb programmer. I used in ubuntu without any 
problem. Piklab can use with 1.x firmware version. If you want to use 
Pickit2 with latest firmware than you need to use microchip linux program.
