v3 on Fedora 14

my notes from taking my Seeed BPv3 into use on F14 x86_64

1. As long as RHBZ Bug 663124 is not fixed, use the work-around from Comment #1 in that bug. This means adding a line to /etc/sysconfig/gpsd to prevent gpsd from attaching to the BP.
Code: Select all
USBAUTO=no


2. add this to udev rules (one line)
Code: Select all
SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", ATTRS{serial}=="12345678", MODE="0660", SYMLINK+="buspirate"
obviously, instead of 12345678 you need to use the serial of your BP, find it out with
Code: Select all
# dmesg | grep -A 5 -B 5 SerialNumber
after plugging in the BP.

3. configure minicom with minicom -s buspirate to end up with /etc/minirc.buspirate as follows
Code: Select all
# Machine-generated file - use "minicom -s" to change parameters.
pu port             /dev/buspirate
pu minit            ?^M
pu mreset           ^M
pu mdialpre         
pu mdialsuf         
pu mdialpre2       
pu mdialsuf2       
pu mdialpre3       
pu mdialsuf3       
pu rtscts           No
the initstring used has the advantage that I get BP's help output on connect.

4. use the BP (ideally not as root, just have your user in the right group or play with the MODE in the udev rule.
Code: Select all
$ minicom buspirate


The above is meant to be terse, the forum and wiki have all the info needed, there was just no search result for Fedora and if I ever need to re-do the setup, It will be nice to have all the parts in one post.

Yes. CC-BY-SA is fine.
