I am new to using linux. I am using Suse 9.3. I recently bought myself a gumstix waysmall computer and a USB to serial converter cable to talk to it.
After following the instructions in the docs and attempted to research this online I have turned to you guys. I have tried to connect to the gumstix using both minicom and
kermit but nothing has shown up in the terminal when I power on the stix. I have tried reseating the motherboard in the hirose connector but that has not helped. I have
always handled the motherboard with consideration for ESD.
The converter cable has been recognized by the operating system with no problem.
I'm going to try disconnecting from the gumstix and looping back the serial port to see if its the converter.
Does anyone know what may be wrong?
Thanks for your help,
