Problem with Ubuntu - Serial not connecting to tty

It does not look like my board is being linked to the ttyUSB0

[ 873.160153] usb 3-2: new full-speed USB device number 6 using uhci_hcd [ 873.345365] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0403, idProduct=6001 [ 873.345379] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 873.345390] usb 3-2: Product: FT232R USB UART [ 873.345398] usb 3-2: Manufacturer: FTDI [ 873.345405] usb 3-2: SerialNumber: A9014FVD

There is no mention of linking to tty

Any ideas?


Just to update, I've tried this: Does not work

I am running ChrUbuntu

take a look here:

probably you just have to set up properly UDEV, let me know

No joy

From what I understand the usbserial module may not be in my kernel. Any way to test for / enable that?


really strange FTDI is enabled by default in many distribution.

BTW recompile the kernel is not that hard, and if you have a good pc it takes less than drink an hot tea.

Thre is a voice in the kernel menu that explicit say FTDI driver, under the USB section if i remember right.

take a look at some basic guide for recompiling kernel in your distribution and everything will be clear (just remember to backup! always!)
