I want to use usbserial devices on my PR4100, and enable cdc-acm device.
I was able to get the kernel drivers for ACM by temporarily installing Z-Way and taking their drivers, but it seems that FTDI is supposed to be part of the kernel. When I download the kernel sources, the .config for kernel indicates that FTDI isn’t enabled.
I could try to learn to compile a new kernel from source that includes both ACM and FTDI, or I could buy a Raspberry Pi and say “f*** it,” or I could install Ubuntu, whose instructions seem available from this very forum! (I’d love to have zsh or bash instead of busybox!)
So, KEEPING MY CURRENT DRIVES, what options do I have here? Should I install Ubuntu and run from a USB stick? Do I simply need to setup shares again from existing drives, data intact? I should I figure out how to bite the bullet, copy my stuff, and do FreeNAS via USB drive?
