SAMA5D3 Xplained Kernel with USB serial console drivers

Wed Oct 05, 2016 12:24 am

I've pulled the kernel source from github at:

https://github.com/linux4sam/linux-at91.git

I'm trying to compile a kernel for the SAMA5D3 explained which has the USB serial console drivers so that I can open a serial connection between my laptop and the board via USB A Micro connector.

Which modules are required to be included in the .config when compiling the linux from source for this. I'm using the "make ARCH=arm menuconfig" command to include modules and I can't seem to find the one that makes this work.

Thanks in advance.

Presumably you are referring to USB port A which uses a micro-AB receptacle.
That configuration requires the USB port on the Xplained to function as a device port, so you have to configure the kernel to use a USB gadget as a serial console.
