Using EZ430 in a Linux VM

Started by "=?U...@gmail.com [msp430]" May 26, 2017
Hello,

I have been trying to use EZUSB in a Linux VM using VirtualBbox.

I attach my EZUSB to the vm successfully. But Ubuntu Linux doesn't detect
it for some reason.

I tried to use it directly to a Linux box (bypassing the VM) and it works
fine with mspdebug.

I believe people have tried it in VMWare workstation and player without
success.

Any pointers?

Thanks.

Beginning Microcontrollers with the MSP430

Here is related dmesg output from the VM

Seems that it fails at driver / firmware load. Is there a new firmware for
it?

Thank you.
