Been busy last time with the project (its driving me near madness) so little communication with the board of messages. After a lot time using hyperterminal under windows realized i had a usb to serial adapter (belkin F5U103) that actually worked out of the box with linux driver (i use fedora core 5) The very first time worked flawlessly, no probs so far. But after some poweroff poweron of the desktop machine, it seems to have some probs connecting to the serial adapter or something. I have to connect to other non previously used usb port (only one resting none used) and seems after some start and quit of minicom that works. So i guess im leaving busy something after quits... Do anybody have some clue about this, or it is just the linux driver for the usb adapter is buggy?
