Constraints and Limitations

Dev Machine Linux Version

To develop applications within the Legato Application Framework, a current supported Long Term Support version of Ubuntu Linux is required on your dev machine (or running in a virtual box on Windows). Ubuntu 16.04 is the current recommended version to use on your dev machine.

ECM-USB modem manager issue

Ubuntu 15.10 and newer has Modem Manager version 1.4.12-1ubuntu1 installed by default which conflicts with the ECM-USB driver when connecting a target. Modem manager may cause the Ubuntu Network Manager to crash on your host and/or your target device to become unavailable over USB.

Symptoms:

  • NetworkManager crashing when plugging into your device over USB, or
  • The target device becomes inaccessible after 30 seconds.
