Background… I purchased the new Librem 14 to be my on prem workhorse and so far with some tweaks to PureOS I have been able to get everything I need to work, work, except for accessing USB based console cables. I have two USB-C and one USB-A based cable and none work with the new PureOS (10) that come by default on the new Librems.
These cables work on my MacBook, Lenovo P52s (Winders), and my System76 (PopOS), but not here.
Another strainge behaviour that I noticed is when you plugin the cable the OS does recognize it and lables it ttyUSB0 in /dev, however, it is only there for roughly 3 seconds before disappearing, never to be seen again. Unless unplugged and then plugged back in of course.
This brings me to my questions:
- Does anyone else experience this?
- How on earth do I troubleshoot this?
- Finally, how do I fix this (please let some genius see this and fix whatever driver has the bug and release it in the next batch of updates ;-)?
