Problem usng UART with serial device

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to get data from a GPS serial module link to the Soc fpga cycloneV dev Kit. But it doesn't work. I disabled the login prompt, configure the UART and use "cat /dev/ttyS0" but nothing happens. I use the Linux GSRD from rocketboard but it don't seem to included the cp210x driver for USB/uart device. 

It works when I send data from a PC. 

 

Anyone have solution ? 

 

Thanks.

I upgraded my Linux image with the last GSRD realease 14.1.  

 

uname -a : Linux socfpga_cyclone5 3.10.31-ltsi-02861-g801a40f# 1 SMP Sun Feb 22 16:59:00 UTC 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux 

 

My device is detected : 

 

dmesg : 

usb 1-1: new full-speed USB device number 3 using dwc2 

usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=10c4, idProduct=ea60 

usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 

usb 1-1: Product: CP2104 USB to UART Bridge Controller 

usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Silicon Labs 

usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 006FA62E 

 

But it is not add as serial device And never display in /dev, I think that usbcore or usbserial driver is missing.
