    Maybe you could check our newer product, Premier Wave 2050, which also runs at Linux with two serial ports and Ethernet.

    Need two serial connections on XportPro

    I need two serial connections to XportPro, running linux; one as a terminal to the OS, and a second to connect to another board via serial. It seems there is only one port available. How do I meet the two needs?
    Any suggestions would be welcome

    error: "Cannot build host tools"
    I mounted the SDK iso file, then confirmed the mount. After that per instructions ran from the install directory: /install.sh ....
    All the messages (and my responses are per your instructions)... but the install does not complete and ends with this error message (Cannot build host tools).



    Below are the last few lines of the install log:
    genromfs.c: In function ‘processdir’:
    genromfs.c:585:13: warning: ignoring return value of ‘readlink’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]
    readlink(n->realname, bigbuf, sizeof(bigbuf));
    ^
    loading initial cache file /home/embedteam/exportPro/hostsrc/cmake/cmake-2.8.0/Bootstrap.cmk/InitialCacheFlags.cmake
    Curses libraries were not found. Curses GUI for CMake will not be built.
    install: cannot stat ‘cmake-2.8.0/bin/ccmake’: No such file or directory
    make[1]: *** [sysroot] Error 1
    make: *** [cmake] Error 2


    FATAL ERROR: Could not build host tools
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I am running with Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64 bit
    The missing "cmake-2.8.0/bin/ccmake" in the log file; does that give a clue?

    Although the SDK install was not completed, I do see the following folders in the install directory: host, hostsrc, toolchains and the file: .install.log

    Need your guidance on how to proceed.
    NEW INFO:
    I have made progress: I was able to tell the SDK where the curses library and header were (fix in the FindCursor file); so now the SDK builds and also I am able to connect over the serial port to dBug boot loader.
    The problem I have is that to down load binaries to the XportPro I cannot "make" the image. I run "sudo make config" and select the defaults. Then I run "sudo make", but it seems there is a problem in building the 2.6.x kernel. I piped the output of the make command to a file, but I do not see a way immediately to attach that file... but basically make[1] is saying cannot find m68-uclinux-gcc: command not found
    make[3]: *** [scripts/mod/empty.o] Error127
    make[2]: *** [scripts/mod] Error2
    make[1]: *** [scripts] Error 1

    Some help would be greatly appreciated

    ------------------------------------------------------
    USEABLE UPDATE
    ================================================== ===
    Useable update:

    I have finally been able to install the SDK on a linux host, build a new application, load to the XportPro and run it. Below are the fixes that I had to make:
    You need to use a 32 bit environment on your linux host.
    Ubuntu12.04LTS is your best bet
    The SDK did not install without problems, because it could not find the curses library; fix: I found the ncurses library on my system and in the FindCurses.cmake (at:hostsrc/Cmake/Cmake-2.8.0/Modules); just before the FindPackage function: FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS(Curses DEFAULT_MSG
    CURSES_LIBRARY CURSES_INCLUDE_PATH), I set the CURSES_LIBRARY and CURSES_INCLUDE_PATH to the location of the nucurses library and header file ncurses.h respectively (that I had found manually!)
    With this the SDK installed without any more problems.

    When building a program, the build was not successful because jffs2 could not be installed, because the location in (target)
    romfs:
    @jffs2.sh .......
    although set in the environment had been overridden, somewhere before this step. So I simply added "-e" option at the start of this line:
    romfs:
    @ -e jffs2.sh
    to re-establish the environmental setting.

    With these changes, the application built correctly (Important: you need to source the env_m68k-uclinux Before you run make.... this is the step that sets up all the correct environment variables).

    Hi dear,
    I am a new user. I tried to start the VM, but the player does not find an Operating System.
    I am using VMware Player for Linux (last version) and my host machine is kubuntu - 64-bit.
    Regards,
    JC.

    Port to Windows and VisualGDB

    I would like to port the tools to Windows and Visual GDB

    Are there any helpful hints on how to do this?

    Where can I find the sources?

    Is it at uclinux.org in the the m68k-uclinux area?

    RE: Root password for Ubuntu VMWare image

    Ignore that last request- sudo did the job.

    Hi.

    Can you tell me what the root password is for the Ubuntu VMWare image included in this release?

    Thanks

    If you can't FTP (for example, your ISP doesn't support reverse DNS lookups), you can use HTTP to download the file:
