Hi Giovanni,

In the same project and using the same port, Is the following possible?

1. Use the SERIAL driver to configure a device,
2. Use the UART driver to read packets from device.

I know that ChibiOS performs a check at compile time to avoid the same port. I tried to force the situation but I get this mistake:

Code: Select all

Linking build/ch.elf
./build/obj/hal_uart_lld.o (symbol from plugin): In function `uart_lld_stop_receive':
(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `VectorD8'
./build/obj/hal_serial_lld.o (symbol from plugin):(.text+0x0): first defined here
collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [../../chibios191/os/common/startup/ARMCMx/compilers/GCC/mk/ build/ch.elf] Error 1

Thank you.

Try the appropriate serial driver from viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3941

You can use it in either "normal" serial mode, or with character by character callbacks.

The two drivers cannot be combined on the same UART.

I recommend you take your time and learn things step by step or you will hit a lot of showstoppers. Guides on are very useful, have you tried those?
