Installing CrossConnect for ARM on Linux

This section contains instructions for installing your CrossConnect for ARM hardware under Linux.

System Requirements

  • CrossWorks for ARM version 1.5 or later
  • A PC with a USB interface
  • Linux Kernel version 2.4.20 or later
  • Libusb 0.1.10a or later

Installing CrossConnect for ARM Software

As libusb is used to communicate with the CrossConnect, no additional driver installation is required.

If you need to install libusb, download the latest version from http://libusb.sourceforge.net and install it into the /lib directory.

Regular users generally do not by default have USB access permission. Accessing a USB device with insufficient access permission usually results in a Cannot set USB configuration or Cannot claim USB interface error message when using CrossWorks.

Depending on which Linux distribution you use, there are a number of different ways of granting regular users USB access permission.

On Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint 14, openSUSE 12.2 and Fedora 17

You need to create a file in /etc/udev/rules.d (e.g. 60-crossconnect.rules) with the following contents:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="131b", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0003", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="131b", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0004", MODE="0666"

On Ubuntu 8.10 to 10.04, openSUSE 10.3 and Fedora 8

You need to create a file in /etc/udev/rules.d (e.g. 60-crossconnect.rules) with the following contents:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", \
SYSFS{idVendor}=="131b", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0003", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", \
SYSFS{idVendor}=="131b", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0004", MODE="0666"

On Ubuntu 6.06 and Ubuntu 7.10

You need to create a file in /etc/udev/rules.d (e.g. 60-crossconnect.rules) with the following contents:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="131b", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0003", \
ACTION=="add" MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="131b", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0004", \
ACTION=="add" MODE="0666"

On RedHat 9.0

You need to add the following lines to the /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap file:

crossconnect 0x0003 0x131B 0x0003 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0
crossconnect 0x0003 0x131B 0x0004 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0

And create the script file /etc/hotplug/usb/crossconnect which contains:

#!/bin/bash
if [ "${ACTION}" = "add" ] && [ -f "${DEVICE}" ]; then
chmod a+rw "${DEVICE}"
fi

Consult the USB documentation for your specific Linux distribution for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I getting a 'The RTCK signal is not responding, disable "Active Clocking" mode' error message?

When active clocking mode is enabled some initial checks are made to ensure that the RTCK signal tracks the TCK signal. You will get this message when the RTCK signal has failed to match the TCK signal within a one second timeout period. This means that the target does not support active clocking and you should disable it by setting the Adaptive Clocking target property to No.

Why am I getting a 'Target not responding message'?

This error message could be caused by the following:
  • Incorrect ARM debug interface type - Check that the Target | ARM Debug Interface project property matches the type of target you are trying to connect to.
  • JTAG clock frequency too high for target - Reduce the JTAG clock frequency by increasing the JTAG Clock Divider target property or enabling active clocking by setting the Adaptive Clocking target property to Yes.

What do I have to do to achieve maximum download speed?

To achieve maximum download speed:
  • Disable JTAG clock division by setting the JTAG Clock Divider target property to None.
  • Disable adaptive clocking by setting the Adaptive Clocking target property to No.

Why do I get a "CrossConnect not running ARM version of firmware" error message when I connect?

You will get this error message if you are using a version of CrossWorks for ARM prior to 1.5. Make sure you are using CrossWorks for ARM 1.5 or later.
