So, I'm working through the provided material. The temperature sensor firmware (is that the proper term?) has a weird problem. It displays this:

emperature: 82.43

on line 1 no less. I loaded the initialload code again, and got a similar problem. It only displays the last line of the four that it should, also, on line 1. Thanks in advance.

I'm getting the same issue. Anyone have any insight?

Download the Nerdkit software again, and start over.

You might also start over from scratch with a empty breadboard.

You will be amazed how fast you get at setting up the breadboard, often the easiest way to solve a wiring problem is to just start over.

I have started from scratch on both accounts. But, I suppose I will try again.

Did you do the tempsensor_edu project, where you followed the guide and filled in the missing portions of the code? If so you may have missed something, or mixed something up...

Yes, I've loaded both the tempsensor and tempsensor_edu project, and the initialload code. It's not specific to the loaded firmware.

After I removed "-j .text" from the Makefile for the initialload program, I was able to see all the text for all four lines. But when I load the tempsensor program, I still see a blank LCD. Even the LED I stick in breadboard row 12 won't light up when the tempsensor program is loaded (but does for initialload).
