Unfortunately the software part of the emulator was Windows only. I
didn't succeed to make it work under wine.
Everything seemed to work... with the exception of the serial.

Error messages were the same one observed running the program
under Windows. Not enough to say that the culprit was still the
hardware, but...

BTW... is there a family of cpu for embedded development of similar
class of st6, microchip pic16, atmel avr 8bit or even as large as avr
32bit that have development tools under Linux?
Is there a place where to have information about embedded
development on Linux... that doesn't mean that the embedded cpu have
to run Linux, but that I can find development tools on Linux
(assembler, C compiler, debugger, emulator soft etc...)?
