Over the weekend I got bitbate to complete without errors and I set up kermit. Today I tried to communicate to the verdex processor (starter pack) using kermit. However, when I power cycled the processor, it does not transmit any characters over the serial port. I verified this problem by viewing the port using a Windows RS232 port monitor. I only received a null character from the gumstix processor when I applied power to the board.
I assume that the board is bad. Does anyone know of another test that I could perform to verify the board’s condition?
