I want to program a microcontroller under Debian Wheezy, but can't get it to work so far. I asked on Electrical Engineering and got the advice to check if something is already occupying the serial port. I don't have the program they suggested,
How can I check if there is some other package preventing the microcontroller board from talking to the computer? Or if there is some kind of driver problem with the device?
This is what happens when I plug it in:
rumtscho@simak:~/Projects/had_launchpad-blink-master$ dmesg | tail [11936.051300] usb 4-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [11936.051306] usb 4-1: Product: Texas Instruments MSP-FET430UIF [11936.051313] usb 4-1: Manufacturer: Texas Instruments [11936.051318] usb 4-1: SerialNumber: 95FF469286C9572A [11936.060401] cdc_acm 4-1:1.0: This device cannot do calls on its own.

Can I somehow troubleshoot the connection from here?
