Hi,

 

Is it possible to run the commands from teraterm root prompt.

 

I am loading the uImage using tftp, once it is success i am trying to open the device from root prompt

 

open /dev/LCD

 

it is returning

 

open: not found

 

What i am doing wrong here?. the device name is /dev/LCD

 

Is it possible to execute the command from root prompt. Can anyone tell me the syntax how to test like this.

 

Best Regards,Sreedhar.

what exactly are you trying to do ?  what you're describing really doesnt make any sense.  there is no command "open" and by default no "/dev/LCD".

Hi Mike,

 

What i actually meant was to open any device from command line, I undertood that we can not open a device from command line.

 

Thankyou,

 

Sreedhar.

`cat /dev/foo` will open and read any device
