Serial connection error (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)
@Enrico-Bermudez Are you on 64 bit or 32 bit? If my compilation works I can send you the
@Boken-Lin, I'm on a 64-bit machine. (x86_64)
Try the following:
cp210x.koto that folder as well
The above procedure worked for me on Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
@Boken-Lin You're at 3.13.0-68-generic, while I'm at 3.13.0-53-generic.
Not sure if the slight change in kernel version will be an issue. But I tried it anyway.
I still got the 'Invalid module format' error.
Let me see if I can update the kernel to the same version and try again.
And if that doesn't work, I may end up upgrading to 15.10.
@Enrico-Bermudez Ok. I wasn't able to get kernel version 3.13.0-53 anymore. I was only able to find the Ubuntu image with the updated kernel. I think you might need to perform
apt-get dist-upgradeto upgrade the kernel.
@Boken-Lin , Kernel upgrade didn't go up to 3.13.0-68-generic for some reason.
I can only bring it up to 3.13.0-55-generic. insmod seemed to work, but the connection still isn't working.
After all those failed attempts, I decided to upgrade to the latest long-term supported kernel 4.1.13. I used the instructions shown at:
Then followed the instruction for installing the cp210x driver.
And the serial connection works now!
@Enrico-Bermudez Yay! That's great news!
Thanks for all your help, @Bokin! I learned a lot just going through this process with you.
@Enrico-Bermudez No problem! That's what we are here for :) It's a learning experience for us as well. We'll know what to do to help people through similar issues!
fyi I had the same problem on a fresh install of ubuntu 14, no USB devices listed. But after some time when i tried again it simply worked by itself.
