If you look at the documentation( When I bought it the version was only 1.0), you will see everything is for MWsindow (Putty?). I tried every know ftdi configuration to get OpenOCD working(I even had to cat /proc/bus/usb to get the numbers, it was not published then), none worked. When I wrote them about it, No answer.
If OpenOCD does not work, and you can not debug the system at that low level, You do not have full control,
The Linux host that come with it is just a is a bzip2 of a gcc&libs and a file system (BTW: devices and sockets do not like to be zipped, use cpio). To me this is a MSwindoze programmer that does not know what they are doing.
Setting up TFTP and NFS root is basic to any embedded Linux project, it is the low level debugger that makes the system.
