Re: usb to serial adaptors or tnc-pi which is easier to install for the pi

The key file to change is in the bpq.conf file, which should be in the directory you created for linbpq/pilinbpq. Simply change the port to point to the /dev/USB0 instead of /dev/tty0. John did a pretty job in the docs for the Raspberry PI and linbpq. If you can, send your .conf files to me and i'll correct them for you. Dennis. KB9RRX.

I have several different USB to serial devices, from el cheapo to the ftdi, and they all work on my pi.
Check with the command : dmesg | grep tty what the exact name of the USB device is.
For instance the pl2303 turns up as /dev/ttyUSB0. The latter being a zero
Hope it helps
