Hi there!

Anyone see this cool little thumb-drive sized spectrum analyzer?
http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/accessories/80ce/

They even say that the friendly folks at Kismet have created X/Linux based software:
http://www.kismetwireless.net/wispy.shtml

Since it looks like gtk libraries are used, will this work on X/Qt? Is it possible, Meanie? It would make a really cool Wireless analyzing machine.

TIA

Craig...

Beats me. I'm not a programmer. I mostly just break stuff.

Color me dumb. I have been looking around trying to find libusb, only to see (tonight) that Meanie included it in his zip file.

Barry, you did install libusb as well as the wispy-tools, right? Can you give us the last 10 lines (or so) of your dmesg command output right after inserting the wispy.

thanks,

Craig...

I had already installed the same libusb that Meanie included. I tried Meanie's just incase it was different.

here you go!

So isn't this just an issue of configuring hotplug to associate a driver with this device? Barry, do you know which driver is being used in your working slackware machine? Perhaps you can give us a list of your kernel modules (on the slackware machine) which include usb:
/sbin/lsmod | grep usb

Thanks,

Craig...

It sees it as a keyboard. I've also compiled it in a knoppix live environment, and it sees it as a keyboard there as well.

Hmm, that is interesting. Well the good news is that there is a keyboard driver for the Zaurus. I have hooked up a USB keyboard to the Z and it works (sort of), with the exception that the key mapping is all wrong.

So perhaps there is hope. Perhaps all that is needed is a hotplug config to link the device with the keyboard driver.

I am heading to California in the morning, so perhaps I'll find a wi-spy there, if not I'll be ordering one when I get back.
