We have the FreedomStudio tool working great in multiple Centos 7.4 Virtual Machines–(VM)s running in different flavors of the Microsoft Windows OS. These VMs talk to a HiFive board through the USB interface as expected, and we can debug just as if we are running under Windows. Interestingly, however, when we use minicom outside the FreedomStudio tool, all serial communications looks normal. When we use the default Serial Terminal inside FreedomStudio proper, however, the output looks horrible. It does not seem to be adding in the carriage return along with the line feed so printouts simply start on the next line and then wrap around. This seems like a normal Windows / Unix end of line problem, but we have no idea how to fix it.
Our communications use the /dev/ttyUSB1 driver for the Serial Port; 115200 for the Baud Rate; 8 for the Data size; None for parity; and 1 for the Stop bits. Additionally it doesn’t matter whether we choose the Default (ISO-8859-1) Encoding, or the UTF-8 encoding as neither fix this.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
