papilio-prog on mac osx maverick

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've been developing Papilio apps on my Macbook Pro. It has been

working great so far. Normally, I run ubuntu under vmware and download

bit files using papilio-prog.

 

Yesterday, I upgraded to Maverick.

 

Unfortunately, now I can't seem to get papilio-prog to work. If I run it

I get the following error.

 

% papilio-prog -c

Could not access USB device 0403:6010.

 

I recompiled the source, and I get basically the same message. I also

tried it using sudo.

 

I looked at /dev and now I get the following devices.

 

cu.usbserial-00001014B
cu.usbserial-141A
tty.usbserial-00001014B
tty.usbserial-141A

 

I think this has changed, but I can't remember what it used to show.

 

Any suggestions?

I downloaded the Mac Installer. Installation worked fine.

 

But the programmer still can't access the device. Here is the message I get.

 

Could not access USB device 0403:6010. If this is linux then use sudo.

 

I tried it from the GUI and from the command line. On the command line, I tried

it with sudo. None of these attempts worked.

Well, that is a good piece of the puzzle...

 

It brings up another question though, are the virtual COM ports of the Papilio working? Can you load a bit file that outputs something over the serial port and see the output? This may be a catch 22 for you though.

 

Jack.

I'm away from my mac the next couple of days. I will look into that when I get back. Although,

as you say, it may be tricky to do without a connection.

I think I figured it out.

 

Mavericks now loads the FTDI drivers by default. In order to use libftdi, you need to unload the

driver. Here is what I did:

 

sudo kextunload -v -bundle com.apple.driver.AppleUSBFTDI

 

There may be another way to do this.

 

I haven't tried the serial port yet.

Hi I had the same problem, "Could not access USB device 0403:6010. If this is linux then use sudo" it was intermittent. Rebooting the computer seemed to help but it would fail after 10 mins or so. I found this forum and twoothers and tried the recommendations to no avail but then found at the end of this forum;

The conclusion that the cable was the problem. I replaced my cable with a shorter one and it all worked! :-)
