Re: Convert a coders cable from serial to usb?

The ebay page said it was Prolific. I guess they lied.

None of that worked either. Thanks for all the help though henzenmann.

Re: Convert a coders cable from serial to usb?

Now lsmod shows: Module Size Used by pl2303 21892 0 usbserial 32488 1 pl2303 It still said "console enabled" so I tried changing the device to "/dev/ttyUSB0" but when I tried to upload an elf it said "-t: No such file or directory". Perhaps mine uses a different tty name? How to I go about finding t...

Hmmm. I don't think the driver was loaded because I can't find pl2303 with lsmod.

Re: Convert a coders cable from serial to usb?

My USB to serial adapter came in the mail today. I plugged everything up and tried to send an elf to the dreamcast but the only thing the terminal said was "Console enabled". Which happens to be the same thing it says when there isn't a coder's cable plugged in in the first place. Anyone have any id...

Re: Convert a coders cable from serial to usb?

I have given the BBA great thought, but I can never seem to justify the insane price for the speed upgrade. And I hear some people do their business by burning cd-rs... if they can do that then I can manage with my slow coder's cable. Anyway, I've already bought a usb to serial adapter online for th...

Convert a coders cable from serial to usb?

I recently got a new laptop. I would like to continue developing on the DC but it has no serial plugs. Will using a serial to USB converter like this one or something similar do the trick? Or is it much more complex than that. I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 on a Toshiba. EDIT: I've found some tid-bits of i...

P2P for linux: which do you use?

I like Frostwire... but when I use it it slows down like crazy and becomes almost unresponsive... I have tried a few others, but they pale to frostwire.

Thanks BlueCrab, even though I don't think I can print variables with that function which is what I really need to do. BTW, I just found out that using printf without passing a variable works... like:

Code: Select all

printf("This works!\n");

printf("But this doesn't work! %f",corn);

printf() doesn't print anything to the terminal.

I recently got a Dreamcast Development setup on my linux system and found that printf() does nothing for me (doesn't print stuff to the terminal). It used to work when I had it set up for windows using the DC Dev ISO. I have a faint memory of someone saying that communication bewteen the terminal ca...

What IDE (or text editor) do you use for programming?

Just curious what you guys think is the best... I'll probably use one of the default ones that comes with Ubuntu untill I hear of a better one (if there are better ones).

Random question. When something asks me to point to where kos is.... Do I point it to the dirrectory called kos that contains a folder called kos-1.3.0 or do I point to the folder inside kos-1.3.0 that is also called kos? Whoever named those folders should be shot. Anywho, so I copied your environ.s...

I really think that your flex installation is still not correct, and if I'm right Harley's build script won't help you much. Harley's build script worked like a charm. You are using Ubuntu, right? Try the commands "dpkg -l flex" and "dpkg -L flex". The output should look somewhat like this: Yes, I'...

I have installed flex and it still gives the same error when I try to compile even though I am able to use flex in the terminal myself. After posting this I will restart my computer and retry. BTW, just in case you were wondering, I am making sure to run unpack.sh after each attempt. EDIT: As expect...
