RS485 Extension exposed as Linux serial device ?


Recommended Posts



Thanks a lot for your quick reply.


An RS485 Extension is already exposed as /dev/ttyS0, but you cannot use it because brickd is using it.

So, does this /dev/ttyS0 device supports the regular Linux and RS485

specific related ioclt() parameters ?


So you either need to disable brickd on the RED Brick or patch brickd to be able to use an RS485 Extension as a normal serial port on the RED Brick.


Any tips to patch brickd for this ? Do you plan to add a brickd configuration parameter which would ease this ?
