I am currently using fedora 11 kernel 2.6.29 version, i wanted to write device driver for usb to detect my own device. My project is radio with computer. My fm radio get connected to usb port so i need to write h/w interfacing program.
I am hoping there is somebody out there who might recall DPT hardware and be able to get it to work under Linux. DPT were bought up by Adaptec but made great SCSI cards. The PM3334UW is a true hardware raid device which I have been using in SOHO environment for the last 7 years or so with IBM Warp 4.52 (MCP2). The box, although legacy hardware is sound and I wish to keep it running but hoped to have an openSUSE option. Unfortunately I cannot find a driver for the SCSI RAID card. There are a good deal of posts concerning eata_dma.c and other eata based drivers as possibles but when I load the eata driver that is available when loading openSUSE 11.3 I am asked for parameters and I haven't a clue what these should be.
The error "USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x603/0xf2) is not claimed by any active driver." is in dmesg every time I connect my Logitech keyboard to my system. I also tried (all with the same error): - Memory stick - DVD-burner - Compaq mouse
So I bought an eMachine e250 from a friend of mine, and installed Backtrack on it. That worked fine, until I realised that I didn't like KDE, and decided to get the gnome-based Gnacktrack (based on Ubuntu 10.10, so I'm fairly sure they work the same). I also have a harddrive from an old laptop that I've scrapped with Ubuntu 10.4 that I run in the laptop, and fpr some bizzare reason, neither operating system is able to detect the wireless card. It worked fine with Backtrack (based on Noppix I believe), and I'm curious as to why the wireless card hates Ubuntu so much. I know that it's unable to detect the wireless card because on start-up it says "Unable to detect WMID device". I even added the wireless card from my scrapped laptop to the laptop, and that NIC was detected just fine. (though I can't use it because the antenna won't reach the slot for the secondary NIC)
I have installed live cd on usb pendrive. Everything works great. How can I find out which device driver it is using? Where are the device driver files stored? How do you specify the device driver when mounting a device?
I have a FireWire camera LifeSize connected to my PC in the FireWire interface. My PC has miniPCI slot and with external converter its having a FireWire interface. Now its Ubuntu who is not showing me anything at all when i try:
$ uname -a Linux desktop 2.6.38-11-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 29 20:51:21 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I am attaching a LTO-3 tape drivce into my RHEL5 linux machine. Every time i used to restart my machine to detect the tape drive is there any way to rescan the buses to detect the newly attached scsi devices. In solaris "devfsadm" and "iostat" is there. I need the same kind of thing in linux.
I'm using debian lenny, I bought a new Hp officejet j4500 scanner but the xsane is unable to detect the scanner. It says device not found. If I run xsane as root it detects and works properly it is obvious.I have added the user to scanner,saned and also to root user group.
I have a pair of special radio-devices which support SNMP, but the problem is, that if I snmpwalk those devices, I only see few generic values(sysContact, sysDescr, sysServices etc) and nothing else. Most likely I need MIB files so NMS could know what values can be asked from the radio devices? If yes, is there a possibility to get all the OID's device supports without MIB files as those devices have been out or production for years?
I installed ubuntu 10.04 alternate version recently. I am able to install broadcom STA wireless driver for model 4321. Even if it is listed under System>Hardware Driver, it gives me an error when I try to activate it. It asks me to read the file var/log/jockey.log.
I read the file and i found this:
/sys/module/wl/drivers does not exist, cannot rebind wl drivers.
How one could determine (for use in a Bash or Python script) which device (eg /dev/sda1, /dev/hda1... etc) a ramfs was loaded from when booting from a USB drive.
I have a RIPLinux/Tinycore live USB disk that automatically needs to run a script that is stored on the same USB drive but not part of the RIPLinux/Tinycore image. (Please note that I do not want to put this script into the RIPLinux image.) I therefore would like to remix the RIPLinux/Tinycore ISO to automatically run this script once it has started up. After RIP linux has booted I would like to automatically mount the USB drive that RIPLinux/Tinycore was booted from. I need help detecting which device this is.
The nouvea drivers work with some xrandr magic, but the closed-source drivers won't. They fail to detect a possible resolution over 640x480. My monitor has a native resolution of 1440x900 @ 60hz. I've tried to modify my xorg.conf, but to no avail. I installed the latest nvidia drivers from the site instead of the repo drivers, version: 260.19.29, this is my xorg.conf, basically a standard xorg file:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 260.19.29 (email@example.com) Wed Dec 8 12:27:39 PST 2010 Section "ServerLayout"
I have to install a linux destribution (Ubuntu 2.6.21) on an embedded PC which contains a FlashCard instead of the HDD.On the bootup, the installation cannot start since it cannot detect the FlashCard on which it will make the installation; therefor, i have to add the driver of this FlashCard to ISO CD
I have a nVIDIA Geforce 8500 GT on my Ubuntu system.and have the latest 260.19.36 driver installed.the Mplayer was from SVN checkout also the latest version.but the configure script from mplayer can't detect VDPAU on my system. just give me the output like this Check VDPAU .... No If I force Enable the VDPAU. the make process won't be successful.just googled, most article that I can find about Mplayer and VDPAU is out of date.
Right so I just bought an Acer TimelineX with a Broadcom BCM43225 BCM43225 802.11b/g/n WiFi card. With this card I am not able to detect any wireless networks and after googling around I found out other people have had similar issues. But my problem is kind of unique in the sense that I'm using Backtrack as my Linux distribution (I'm not a blackhat or anything, more of an enthusiast with no malicious intentions) Also I'm not a God at Linux so if you have any solutions please be verbose! I tried the following: [URL] But the Makefile spits out a syntax error. (Makefile:29: *** missing separator. Stop.)
In C++ or C, is there anyway to detect the name of the module or driver currently used by a network interface card (either wired or wireless, INCLUDING USB DEVICES)?My application must have this feature. I just want to detect whether the module / driver is ndiswrapper or not.
I am trying to install the video driver for my hp a1010n. The video device is a 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics. I have seen a few sites that have referenced this but they were not written for new users and I could not figure out how to install it. I am fairly adept at usage of computers (mostly Windows OS) but am not yet familiar with Ubuntu so I am aware of the absolute basics... I am just not sure what commands to use in the terminal and etc.. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
I am writing a device driver on x86 machine,Ubuntu distribution,kernel version 2.6.35.I want to debug my driver in kernel mode.I tried KGDB(Kernel Level Source Debugger).But support is given for kernel version 2.6.13.But I want to make KGDB work on version 2.6.35.Could anyone help me where can I get help to make KGDB work on 2.6.35 version?Or is there any other method to debug my driver using some other tool?
Of course, it's Windows only, and XP only at that. However, the data that needs transferred between the device and the computer should be fairly basic, unless it offloads a lot of processing to the computer. I'm not a programmer, nor do I play one on TV, but I have written some fairly complicated microcontroller programs and some basic Java GUIs. Besides writing the actual code, how hard is it to do whatever needs done to make a Linux device driver, apart from the code to make the device work?
