I am struggling with making a usb programmer for Atmega. I couldn't get my hands on a proper FT232L or something like that, but I did manage to find a serial to usb converter like this. This gets detected like a normal com port and is able to make work modems and printers. Will that do serial programming? There are serial programmers around which I have seen, work with ponyser as the programmer in the makefile. How do I make one?
Edit Through lsusb I have found out that the converter has a pl2303 inside (compatible with ft232r) so how do I do the programming now?
