OpenSDA s32k144evb Linux Ubuntu 20.04 port not found

S32 IDE for ARM can't detect Open SDA port in settings. I've installed libusb driver from PEMicro, but nothing was changed.

DMESG output:

What's wrong with it?

Hello,

For me this turned out to be a path, or 64b vs 32b issue: P&E has an installation script that copies the USB driver to /usr/lib64 if the folder exists. Instead, I tried copying the driver to /usr/lib. After refreshing the ports in S32DS, it appears! Like magic! The driver file is the "libp64-0.1.so.4" available at ~/NXP/S32DS.3.4/Drivers/PnE/drivers/libusb_64_32/.

I think it is worth mentioning that initially the arm-none-eabi-gdb refused to work for lack of a libmpfr.so.4.
(I only found this out when tracking down and running the software in ~/NXP/S32DS.3.4/S32DS/tools/gdb-arm/arm32-eabi/bin, Eclipse would just throw a dumb error.)
The solution was to create a symbolic link from libmpfr.so.6 to libmpfr.so.4 under /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu, as in the answer below:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51288467/cannot-open-libmpfr-so-4-after-update-on-ubuntu-18-04

Also, NXP devboards have very dodgy tactile switches! I couldn't enter BOOTLOADER mode in OpenSDA because SW5 just won't close contact! At least 2 of the 4 on the board are broken.

Also worth checking if your board is somewhat older (didn't work for me, because of the above):

[This is the second attempt at posting, first I spent some 20 minutes writing the answer, just to get it thrown away because I was redirected to login after clicking post. Thanks NXP, just one more frustration among so many.]

Hi,

unfortunately - Ubuntu 20.04 is not supported by S32DS. You can try to install PE Micro drivers manually 

 PEmicro | Experts in Embedded tools for Flash Programming and Development  

Officially supported and tested Ubuntu version is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. On ubuntu 18.04 S32DS also works (but is not tested).
