Hi all, trying to get the USB console working on Ubuntu 16 LTS.
When I connect the HiFive, two new devices show up:
~$ ls /dev | grep USB ttyUSB0 ttyUSB1
However, when I disconnect the board, both devices disappear.
I can get the LED Change output to appear if I connect using
sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB1 115200
and then press the RESET button on the board.
Is there any way to open up the serial connection before the device is connected so that I see the ouput of the program the first time the board boots, instead of needing to hit the RESET button?
Thanks for any pointers!
