Need help with code for Pololu controller

I'm hoping someone is can help me with this code. It uploads ok, but the motors don't run.  Pololu suggested that the libary needs to be update. I'm new to Aurduinos and its beyond my abilities. Any help is appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Hacking Chumby One

I came across some posts on a different discussion board about a nice Wireless internet radio clock called Chumby One. I have found out that it has linux inside and is easily hackable to be used as a robot brain. There are already sample bots out there, I have just started to look into it and thought it might be interesting for some of you. I have almost no knowledge of how linux stuff goes and I don't think I can do much with Chumby at the moment, so I will be interested if some of you guys manage to make it your robot's brain. Perhaps using Python? or Processing?

Arduino and ARM microcontroller

It's been a while since I wrote anything at LMR, so an update is due: I've been messing about with an Arduino Duemilanove that I was given for Christmas 2008. I've done all the usual things with LEDs, servos, LCDs and the like.  Also spent way too much time at the Arduino forums!
