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...

Well, I looked all over the SF Bay Area for this device. No luck. I'll have to mail-order one. I hope to have some more info soon (after I receive it).

Good to see you're still looking into it. My forhead hurts. I have thought about flashing pdax just to see if it works that way.

OK, got the unit via mail-order. Got through the "device not claimed" (modprobe hid). Created /dev/hiddev0, but still getting "unable to find device" problem.

But I have only been working on this for a couple of hours. Unfortunately, I don't have strace to see exactly what the program (wispy_curses) is missing.

I did plug it into my LinuxPPC laptop, and after making wispy_curses and wispy_gtk, it works fine.

I do see differences between the LinuxPPC (kernel 2.6) and the Zaurus (2.4), which I am not sure about. On LinuxPPC, I see that it is the usbfs driver that is being used. I don't find a usbfs driver in the 2.4 kernel for the Zaurus (this could be a 2.6 only thing).

Barry, is your Slackware Linux 2.4 or 2.6? Can you do a cat /proc/bus/usb/devices and see what driver the wispy is using? Mine reports:
P: Vendor=1781 ProdID=083e Rev= 1.00
S: Manufacturer=MetaGeek
S: Product=Wi-Spy
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr= 98mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=03(HID ) Sub=01 Prot=01 Driver=usbfs

It was 2.4. Unfortunetly my laptop died on me over the weekend. So no linux (other than my Z) till I can replace it. That could be a while.
