I received my HiFive1 Founders edition today. I managed to find a usb to micro-usb cable but I don’t seem to be able to connect to the board out-of-the-box on my arch linux machine.
The device appears to power on fine and the green 5V indicator led lights up. However, it does not show up under lsusb for me and I have no /dev/ttyUSB*
I checked dmesg, here are the logs from plugging the HiFive1 in: https://gist.github.com/miotatsu/02e87537e8ed82ac6f1b188104442a10
One thought I had is that it could be an issue with no kernel module being loaded to handle serial usb communication, but
modprobe usbserial didn’t seem to help.
Any advice on getting my HiFive1 talking to my Arch Linux machine would be greatly appreciated.
