I just tried to enter the Edison's Linux console from a Linux PC, I had no issues entering using screen, I believe your issue is that you're not entering the baud rate, enter the command like this:
sudo screen dev/ttyUSB0 115200
Let me know if it works.
I did tried by entering the baud rate and all.
but it is still showing blank screen.
I tried with these commands
1. "sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200"
response : cannot exec : no such file or directory
later on i found that the COM port which the board is connected to is named as ACM0 so i tries this
1."sudo screen /dev/ttyACM0 115200"
response : but here i am getting blank terminal screen and nothing at all.
i am confused little bit in the method of communicating with the board.
i am using "Intel Galileo"(Not Galileo gen 2)
and i have connected it to my pc using USB client port;
and i have executed this "sudo screen /dev/ttyACM0 115200"command to communicate with the linux on Galileo.
Then serial terminal of linux on Galileo is running but its not behaving or responding to the commands i am giving.
tell me where am i wrong
Are you connecting the Galileo to your computer using the serial console cable? In the Galileo Gen1 it is connected to the audio jack. If you in fact are using it, could you show me the output of your PC's console when you type ls /dev/tty*
Also if you don't have a serial console cable you can check Sergey's Blog - Malinov Family Web Presence to learn how to build one.
i understood the steps and booted the intel galileo board successfully,
can i know if there are any other methods of connecting intel galileo to see all the booting process and grub menu.
since i am using "ethernet cable directly connected to pc" type of connecting method?
To see Booting process you MUST use serial cable RS232C to Jack 3,5 mm. Even any things like Arduino commands to see terminal via USB does work when the whole system is UP.
My hint is: use Debian....
1) New 1.0.4 firmware: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24748
2) My little howto:
How to prepare Debian on sd card.
You need 2GB SD card, best is Class 10.
The system is prepared as IMG file, which is RAW image of SD CARD (2GB). Image is avaible at: http://j.mp/galileo-debian-img (about 0,6 GB file)
MD5 sum is avaible at: http://j.mp/galileo-debian-md5
This guide is based on Debian Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, the same can be done with MS-Windows, but it is over the scope of this documentation.
The Ubuntu is FREE Software avaible for everyone. In this case we use special flavour/remix called FREE_Desktop avaible for polish education on http://j.mp/FREE_Desktop
Image is compressed with bzip2 tool to be smaller for downloading, you must uncompress after download:
adasiek@adasiek-ThinkPad-X200:$ bzip2 -d debian-coderdojo-clean.img.bz2
The md5 sum is provided to check if it is correct.
Testing sum for CLI:
adasiek@adasiek-ThinkPad-X200:~/Galileo/stacja_pogodowa/system_image$ md5sum -c debian-coderdojo-clean.img.md5
Image has to be written to card with special tool. For CLI it is dd, for GUI gdiskdump - avaible in PROGRAMY | System | Gtk-Disk Dump Utility:
adasiek@adasiek-ThinkPad-X200:$ sudo dd if=debian-coderdojo-clean.img of /dev/sdb
(it is based on scenario that you use Ubuntu or any other distro with sudo mechanism and sd-card is on /dev/sdb.
After this you should have got working debian distro named coderdojo-galileo on SD card.
( the boot process : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMp18cqSXvc )
After this you can connect Galileo to any router where you have admin access and see ip, what dhcpd server gave to Galileo, and
I will try this as well.
