Has anyone tried plugging a FTDI cable into the usb port on the Beaglebone Black? It works for a while but stops responding after about twenty minutes. Echo and screen commands hang indefinitely. I am running 3.8.13.
Works fine for me. Does ‘dmesg’ show anything? Using ‘screen’ or some other terminal app? Flow control issue?
dmesg doesn’t say anything after it is successfully attached. Flow control is disabled.
It might have to do with the fact that I read and write to it using Mono. The exception says ‘Bad File Descriptor.’ I’ve also seen a similar problem on Raspberry Pi, but I’ve found no suitable solution other than rebooting.
Running app as root?
I take back what I said about dmesg not showing anything. It says ‘mono timed out.’
