Embeded linux newb USB interface Question?
- date: December 20, 2012
I'm a linux Newb. Engineering dropped of a prototype pcb that has embedded linux. I have access to terminal commands and need to manually test the USB ports on the board. I run the lsusb command and get the following:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:7500
I need to read/write a character to each port. How can I manually perform this task using terminal commands. I plan on connecting the usb tx/rx lines so I can loopback the character i am sending. Any suggestions on how to perform this task?
[HOWTO] Install Linux to USB on Mac
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 21, 2010
This is a tutorial on how to install linux to usb on a Mac
To do this, you will need:
An ubuntu disc or ISO (I used 10.04),
A Windows installation disc or windows already installed (I used windows 7 64 bit),
A linux installation disc for any distro (tested with linux mint).
An intel mac (note that this will not work on powerpc)
The OS X installation disc which came with your mac
A wired keyboard and mouse to get linux set up (you can use the bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse in linux)
What we’re going to do is install linux to an external disc, and then wubi to the bootcamp partition, which will find the external linux distro, and insert an entry into wubi’s grub menu, giving us a quad boot of OS X, Windows, Ubuntu (Wubi), and another linux distro.
So what we’re going to do first of all is install windows using Boot Camp. You can skip this section if you have already got windows on your mac.
To do this, you go into utilities, then run Boot Ca
Asus Eee PC 1005PE won't boot linux live usb
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2012
I'm trying to install linux on someone else's Asus Eee PC 1005PE netbook.
Processor: Intel Atom N450 Pineview
Intel GMA 3150 GPU (integrated into CPU)
Win7 Starter Edition
I've tried to let it boot a Linux Mint 13 live usb stick, a Xubuntu USB Live USB and a Kubuntu Live USB. All these usb setups boot fine on my own laptop (Asus K53SJ, see signature). I changed the first boot settings in the BIOS (*all*, I went trough the whole BIOS and checked all possible settings!). The computer then boots until the blue screen with "Start <the linux distro>" or "Try <the linux distro> without installing'-screen and I selected that option and pressed enter. After that the screen turns completely black and it stays that way forever...
I'm really desperate as I tried Asus's own Linux Live USB creator program (downloaded from the Asus 1005PE page on the Asus website), Unetbootin and the Ubuntu create startup disk utility...
[SOLVED] How to install Rogue Class Linux to USB flash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2013
Someone asked how to install Rogue Class Linux on a USB flash drive. This is somewhat technical and I hope to make it easier in the future. In the meanwhile, here are some notes on the subject.
The first step is to detach your hard disks except for the USB flash drive. The installer depends on LILO, which cannot always tell the difference between the USB flash disk and the first SATA disk .
The next step is to install from CD, selecting the USB flash drive as the install target. This is the normal install process described in the user guide.
Once the install process is finished, it is normal to reboot the computer. VirtualBox and computers with old BIOS cannot boot from USB flash drives . To work around this limitation, boot the install CD and immediately hold down the Esc key. This will interrupt syslinux and show a boot: prompt. At this prompt, type:
hugesmp.s rootdelay=10 root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro
This will boot the kernel from CD and the system from the USB fla

Portable linux on USB HD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2013
Hi again, iam still struggling! I gave up the USB flash idea and yesterday bought USB HD 500 GB Seagate.
Idea: Portable linux version on the usb hd so i can use it everywhere on every computer regardles of computers hardware. So i probably need a linux wich can update drivers while it boots or something like that.
So far i tried Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 LST wich failed, i get to login screen, after i login i just get purple screen. On another computer i just get black screen.
Is ubuntu good choice for usb hd? or should i chose some other version? Something faster?
Seems everything fails that i try to do. I followed a guide from malware hunters net the howto pdf and still it all fails.
/EDIT: I found a solution!!! At login screen when i chose my login password there is an icon i clicked and there i chosed UBUNTU 2D. Now it boots into ubuntu.
But the other questions still remain, is ubuntu a good choice as a portable linux version? Ubuntu feels kind of sluggish the 12.10 version. And
