I'm trying to use the BTUART serial port on my non-bluetooth verdex
however it doesn't seem to work. Originally I was planning to
interface it to a Telit GM862 module which uses 2.8v levels but that
didn't seem to work straight off. Thinking it could be a voltage level
issues I tried a loopback system connecting Tx to Rx yet again it
didn't work at all.
Do I need to change any GPIO variables to activate the serial port?
Any tips to set it up?
Also the general gumstix documentation is getting really difficult to
trawl through, having various wikis and such - I know I haven't been
involved in the community for a while but perhaps it would be a good
idea for a single wiki (either a wiki should be designated and the old
stuff ported over or a new one should be set up) which we can all
contribute too and make it really good, if the beginners stuff is
nicely documented then people can rapidly get to a point where they
can really explore the full potential of their gumstix.
