when i wrote
root@beagleboard:~# cat /dev/ttyS0

i can not see anything...!!!

yo have to look for /dev/ttyUSBx

this my my problem.

Usb to serial attached and ls /dev/tty

i can not find /dev/ttyUSBx....

The Angstrom works on Beagleboard. i hevent installed anything nor

Did you get any advance?
I've got a BeagleBoard from LiquidWare, with a pre-mounted Angstrom
and I have the exact same problem.

By default Angstrom does not include ftdi-sio and pl2303 USB-serial modules, which cover the majority of USB-to-serial devices lying around. You need to install them once using:

opkg install kernel-module-pl2303
opkg install kernel-module-ftdi-sio

Then reboot. You will find the /dev/ttyUSB0 files and /dev/serial/by-id/usb-* files.

If you only use one serial USB then you can go for /dev/ttyUSB0 but if you use more than one (for example an USB GPS and an USB weather station) then you need to rely on /dev/serial structure, because ttyUSB* assignment may not be in the same order at every reboot.

I have two different GPS units and an USB-to-serial acting as pl2303, and lots of other stuff (weather station, Arduinos,
