I'm currently trying to use the RS485 in the IGEPv2 board with the
AUTO-Direction change without success.
I'm using the git://git.linaro.org/ubuntu/linux-linaro-natty.git
source and applied this patch: (annexed)
This patch was changed accordingly so that the 2.6.38 kernel would be supported.
I believe the patch and its changes to be correct and I added a few
debug printk to check its behavior.
My problem is:
I can receive but I can't transmit from the board to the devices...
I already tried a simple problem to just set and reset the RTS line (I
don't currently have the source here with me) and the RTS line is
I believe the problem could be this:
- The MUX in the uboot is wrong and RTS of the uart is not correctly configured.
- The kernel changes from the 2.6.36 to 2.6.38 changed the serial
driver in a way that the setting/clearing of the RTS line is done
Would be much appreciated if anyone could shed some light in this
matter since this is driving me crazy!!!
PS: This was taken as reference:
With kindest regards
