  1. Thanks. I figured out the problem, although, I went down so many ratholes that I left unfilled that the final solution 'could' be a combination of all the things already outlined. However, the straw that lightned the camel's load was simply to put the user in the "tty" group. So, adding to the log file, we finally have this painfully-obvious? (in glaring hindsight?) solution: x. Googling far and wide, this Arduino page hints something about having the user in the "tty" group: http://playground.arduino.cc/Learning/Linux So, on a whim, I added my username to the "tty" group &
  2. If it helps, here is the detailed log of what I've tried, so far: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Summarized, here is what I've tried so far: I determined that I'm on 64-bit X86 Centos 6. I checked to see if the libusb drivers are installed. I checked to see what version of Java is installed. I checked to see how Java is configured. I downloaded the Energia Linux binary tarball (energia-0101E0009-linux.tgz) I untarred the Energia tarball to create an energia-0101E0009 directory. I ran the energia application. I set the board to msp430g2553 (
  3. QUESTION: Any pointers as to why the Serial Port is grayed out on 64-bit Centos 6? In the next post, is my detailed installation log (with errors) - but here is a quick summary: I determined that I'm on 64-bit X86 Centos 6. I checked to see if the libusb drivers are installed. I checked to see what version of Java is installed. I checked to see how Java is configured.

  4. Thanks. I'm reading the pinned threads as we speak! And, my first question has now been solved (for the most part): - Energia serial port grayed out on Centos 6 for msp430g2553 Now we need to figure out how to update the installation instructions so all other Linux users who follow in my footsteps don't have the same 5-hour debugging procedure to chase down something that a single sentence in the instructions would have prevented! In summary: a) The Linux (Centos?) instructions should make it clear WHY one needs to be in the "tty" group (as /dev/ttyACM0 is in "dialout
  5. A friend, knowing that I'm interested in microcontrollers, gave me an Energia tarball along with the TI Launchpad MSP-EXP430G2 to play with on my Centos 6 laptop. At the moment, I'm executing the sample programs but the serial port is grayed out and therefore not installing correctly - so - looking for help - I first looked for an nntp USENET newsgroup - but, not having found one, I found this nice forum site instead. This seems to be the place to ask questions (this post is NOT a question!). So, in summary, looking for help is why I created this account - but that's not the purpose o
