Hi, I've written a quick guide on getting a decent set-up for development on a Raspberry Pi. Hope it proves useful to someone!

Thanks for sharing Very Happy However, in the section on connecting the RPi to a serial port, you assume the USB converter to be ttyUSB0. That may not always be the case, perhaps you could amend the entry to add a notice-with-solution if the user fails to connect.

You're welcome Smile

Serial USB converters have never been any different on a Fedora machine in my experience since FC6 or so (and the post is written for a Fedora host). There's a possibility that a program could fail, holding ttyUSB0 and on a re-plug the device would get ttyUSB1 assigned to it, but that's quite unlikely.

Have you had a different experience with a USB serial device on Fedora?

No, but that's because I don't use Fedora Razz (Debian user here Wink) Neither do I have a serial<->USB converter... Mr. Green

I ain't got mine yet! ;o(

About 5 weeks away, what, I could swim the Atlantic in that time...

Anyhow thanks for the pointer and no doubt I will use it...

As for /dev/ttyUSBx easy-peasy to solve...
