I have problems to communicate with my Launchpad MSPEXP430G2 using ccsv6 or msp430-gcc on Fedora 20. What I don't understand is that Energia transmits to the Launchpad normally (LEDs are already blinking...).
I followed step-by-step guides found on the net, create udev rules, finally switch to root to avoid wasting time on Linux stuff, but I still have the same error messages.
In the new TI/RedHat GCC (installed from the provided .run installer), when I connect GDB to the agent with the command 'target remote :55000', I get this message in the GDB agent:
MSP430 Client connected...Connecting to Target
Couldn't find any connected USB FETs! Failed to initialize FET on TIUSB port.
Aborting. MSP430 Error :Could not find MSP-FET430UIF on specified COM port
In CCSv6 (installed with the .bin installer) , when I start debug, I get in the console:
MSP430: Error initializing emulator: No USB FET was found
As I said, I run these in root, and Energia is able to communicate and transmits to the Launchpad on the same computer.
Any clue to what I missed here? I tried to search web and forums with no results (even if I'm not confident with my searching skills...). Maybe I have to compile the toolchain from source instead of running the installer? I may try this next. I'll try next week on a Windows computer too. But I still don't understand why gcc and ccs can't do what energia can out of the box.
Tough to be a complete rookie.
