Search though the list for remarks that resemble “ttyS*” or “ttyUSB*” (standard Serial and USB-to-Serial devices, respectively), where “*”refers to an integer assigned by your machine.Forthe above example a standard Serial port found is at /dev/ttyS1and a USB-to-Serial device is located at /dev/ttyUSB0. If no instances of a serial device are displayed, then a device driver is needed which may require specific knowledge of the band and model of the device used, perhaps its chip-set, and a working knowledge of search engines. After a working serial device is found, refer to the Minicom Tutorial to configure and use the Serial port.
Assembling a program in Linux
No currently supported assemblers exist for Linux, but there is the possibility of using WINE to run a Windows version of AsmIDE in Linux. Click the link for a tutorial.
You can do further HCS12 development under Linux using the free GNU toolchain (cross-compiler, assembler, etc) for the HC11/HC12. See the links below:
You can also purchase a commercial "Workstation for Linux" program from VMWare. This allows you to set up a "virtual" microsoft system on top of a linux system (you can run microsoft programs without booting out of linux). You can then install Code Warrior in the virtual microsoft system and run as desired. You can have full hardware access including serial ports and the BDM via a parallel port (if you have a BDM parallel port system such as from PE Micro).
