    Having finally realised that 16c71 is OTP, now I must update everything to use 16f876 (or above).
    This means changing everything. Can anyone help me to the quickest route for success.
    I'm using Linux (Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10).
    I need to build a new programmer and load in some software to transfer programs to it.
    I'm using Gpasm, I guess that will still be ok.
    I can do the electronics bit but loading new software in Linux is a real mystery to me. I don't think Ubuntu 7.10 can download from the repository any more either.
    I need the simplest, most idiot-proof solution here to get up-and-running as fast as possible. Anyone help?
    Thanks, Guy

    There has been some success using a PICkit2 (like my Junebug kit) under Linux. I recall it mostly a command line utility though. Look for Xiaofan Chen's stuff.
