Ubuntu distro in Beagleboard
im running 11.10 distrobution on my TX beagleboard where i am trying to receive some GPS data from a receiver.
My board is connected to a HOST PC via minicom where i am trying to recieve GPS data into my beagleboard.
I tried doing cat /dev/ttyUSB0..but instead of receiving..it shows on the receiver that its transmitting and receiving. I am not sure what my beagleboard is transmitting but i believe its something to do with the cat function.
i dont have this problem when i try to receive GPS data on my linux x86 processor PC..this problem only happens on my ARM-cortex a8 processor Beagleboard.
How do i stop transmission from the beagleboard to the GPS receiver and just receive ? is there a way..Someone please help!

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
What happens if you use dd instead of cat? IE: dd if=/dev/ttyUSB0Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
