USB Serial device configuration

USB Serial Converter supportEdit

    • depends on USB!=n


  • Option: USB_SERIAL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) USB Serial Converter support
    • depends on USB
      Say Y here if you have a USB device that provides normal serial ports, or acts like a serial device, and you want to connect it to your USB bus.
      Please read <file:Documentation/usb/usb-serial.txt> for more information on the specifics of the different devices that are supported, and on how to use them.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called usbserial.


  • Option: USB_SERIAL_CONSOLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) USB Serial Console device support (EXPERIMENTAL)
    • depends on USB_SERIAL=y && EXPERIMENTAL
      If you say Y here, it will be possible to use a USB to serial converter port as the system console (the system console is the device which receives all kernel messages and warnings and which allows logins in single user mode). This could be useful if some terminal or printer is connected to that serial port.
      Even if you say Y here, the currently visible virtual console (/dev/tty0) will still be used as the system console by default, but you can alter that using a kernel command line option such as console=ttyUSB0. (Try man bootparam or see the documentation of your boot loader (lilo or loadlin) about how to pass options to the kernel at boot time.)
      If you don't have a VGA card installed and you say Y here, the kernel will automatically use the first USB to serial converter port, /dev/ttyUSB0, as system console.
      If unsure, say N.
