In a previous post I was using the PL2303 adapter. Now I'm using an FTDI that's built onto the Tobi board.

  • Download and install the driver from FTDI
  • reboot
  • ls /dev/tty*
  • /dev/tty.usbserial*
  • /dev/tty.usbserial-A100e0TP (this may change when unplugging and replugging)
  • sudo minicom -s (setup the port as the tty.usbserial-xxxxx)
Works for me!

This is reported to also work for OSX 10.3 Panther, 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard

Thanks to PixHawks for the info.
