Comproblem on Raspberry Pi and OpenCPN

Hi,
I have installed the latest version of OpenCpn for Debian/RasperryPi and are having problems with getting the AIS/position in. If I under settings select ttyusb0 I dont get any data. If I run minicom -b 38400 -D /dev/ttyusb0 i get perfect data! Anyone have any idea why this does not work?
Testing CM93 makes the system crasch but I will test on the B version with 512Mb memory because I think that that is the problem, lack of memory. Smaller rastercharts works with no problems.
Will also try to make a smaller databas CM93 and see if that works.
BR
Gunnar

Is it the latest beta version of Opencpn? i had the same problem, ais/gps via usb seemed fine in earlier versions but haven't really played around much.

Also problems with cm93 crashing, but only when zoomed right in. On a 512Mb Pi.

can't you manually enter /dev/ttyusb0 under settings? (I don't have mine to hand so can't check, but I could do that for GPS)

If you want a version that will run CM93 have a look here: PiChart

Thanks, I have it up running now with no problems but could not get the latest beta to funktion with USBports ttyUSB0 or ttyGPS0 The stabled version 3.02 works perfekt with info from AIS Carbon+ True Heading.
