Just to double check are you using 155200 as the actual baud speed, or is this a typo? Because the speed you should be using is 115200. Let me know if this was the problem.
Correct it was a typo, I updated my question with screenshots, hope that help. Cheers
were you booting from SD card or from SPI?
and did I get it right that you do have an audio-JACK -> RS232 adapter?
if you booted from SD you could just mount your SD card in your MAC system and change the /etc/inittab file.
If on SPI you should be able to boot from SD card, mount SPI and replace /etc/inittab connected via the serial adapter
It did try both, but for now I'm gonna focus on accessing the onboard Linux from SPI. Once that is sorted I'll try moving on to the SD card version...baby steps.
Correct I'm using the audio-JACK -> RS232 adapter.
Currently when trying to connect to the SPI linux using Cool Term; I either get no response or this:
I did some looking up online regarding this error, I read this can occur due to a flaw in the MacOS Arduino IDE, causing the IDE to not find some of the libraries even through they are installed. Here is the article:
Regarding your last step:
- If on SPI you should be able to boot from SD card, mount SPI and replace /etc/inittab connected via the serial adapter
I'm not really sure what is involved, could you break it down in steps? Thanks again for your feedback, much appreciated.
using the audio-JACK serial adapter has nothing to do with Arduino I'd say.
Which settings did you use for the serial in Cool Term?
