Hi, So I have been trying to get my Banana Pi R2 to show something on my minicom screen for the past couple of months whether it be post messages or an OS boot-up screen. I have tried using the Ubuntu image (BPI-R2 Ubuntu 16.04 Kernel4.4 V1.3 ) and the centOS 7 (BPI-R2 Centos 7 Kernel4.4 20180112) that were provided on the Banana Pi R2 wiki page and nothing is displaying. Am I missing a step on the setup on the board or the minicom screen?
my settings for minicom are Serial Port: /dev/ttyUSB0 Bps/par/bits: 115200 8N1 HW flowcontrol: off SW flowcontrol: off
this is my output when I use dmesg | grep tty [ 0.390436] printk: console [tty0] enabled [ 1.232986] 0000:00:16.3: ttyS4 at I/O 0x50b0 (irq = 19, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A [ 1036.566867] usb 1-1.1: ch341-uart converter now attached to ttyUSB0
any help is much appreciated thanks!
