@György-Farkas Does that mean that from the Omega2+ prompt if I run a serial terminal that connects to the Arduino - I will be see the output? What serial port should I use to connect to the Arduino from the Omega2+ prompt?

RE: Arduino Dock 2: Connection between Arduino IDE and the dock
RE: Some comments on Arduino Dock and I2C communication
I am still relatively new to the Arduino world - I am guessing that if I have an Arduino sketch that is collecting data from I2C sensors such as BME280 or Gas sensors then the sketch won't work in with the Arduino dock R2 + Omega 2+? I would have re-write those sketches?
Arduino Dock 2: Setup
I have the Arduino Dock2 setup - and I tried to follow these instructions: https://wiki.onion.io/Tutorials/Arduino-Dock/Initial-Setup#arduino-dock-setup
I wired up the Expansion board with Omega2+ and the Arduino Dock 2 expansion - BUT I could NOT get the Omega2+ to power up at all.
Arduino Dock 2: Connection between Arduino IDE and the dock
The whole Arduino Dock 2 is confusing.
I was able to follow instructions and upload a sketch but I keep getting the message "ash: telnet: not found" when I open the serial console.
The Arduino IDE shows the the sktech compiled and it was able to upload it to the board via the ssh / Omega networking port.
BUt not output on the serial console of the Arduino IDE?
RE: Serial Ports (USB) and NodeJS support
@Steven-de-Salas Many thanks. I attempted to use it but unlike the Python code that can read & dump the GPS module - while I do get the serial port to open - I cannot get it to receive and print any data to the console. It seems slow as well to open the port. I will probably debug it more tomorrow.
Serial Ports (USB) and NodeJS support
I discovered a thread talking about NodeJS support on the Omega2/1. While I have basic Node working - one of the main things to access is the hardware ports such as Serial (over the USB). Interfacing to devices using the USB port - I would like to interface using a "SerialPort" module. Unfortunately the MIPS ports for most modules are lacking. Here is the deal - hardware specific modules require on-platform compilation. So SerialPort (which has versions for x86 and ARM), does NOT currently compile and install. What is the plan to get this ported?
RE: Omega2+ node.js modules
@patrick-gunderson I am trying to build a simple IoT project - and got stuck because the SerialPort module does NOT have a MIPS version. I am trying to get setup to attempt building it BUT it won't compile/build - get to the same stage as you are. Any instructions on how to get gcc / node-gyp installed on the Omega2?
