XC-1 and Virtual COM Port on Ubuntu

Post by jonathan »

OK, so I have got the XC-1 up and running and programmed - using the XMOS FTDI driver patch - but I'm not sure how to get it to show up as a virtual COM port.

When I plug it in, I get /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1 but as soon as I program it to do anything (including the XMOS-supplied UART demo for the XC-1), both of these disappear. I'm assuming these are what I need to connect to to talk UART.

Would appreciate any help getting this working.

The same thing happens to me. I get around it by writing the program to the flash, unplugging, and plugging it back in. Then the USB1 comes up (this is what was getting me info), and the program starts (a delay is nice).
