Re: Newbie- Serial Port menu grayed out Mac PPC

I've been having similar challenges in Linux. This was the first problem I ran into (the greyed out serial port menu).

My solution was to ensrure I had the correct permissions set. In linux this ment to ensure I had user rights to the "dialin" group.

Maybe there is something similar in MAC....

Oops, I just removed the post. I didn't notice someone had replied...I am am indeed an embarrassed newbie now! Even though the board was getting power the problem seems to have been that the usb cable was not fully seated in the boards socket !! :-[ Embarassed but, now very happy! ;D
