I've just done a fresh install of 1.1.0r121 - both uboot and the system itself - on my C860. Everything seemed to go well - very smooth. Eventually, the system starts and I login as root. I run startx and get the touchscreen calibration screen as expected.

Then x starts. The screen is initially rotated as if my clamshell was in portrait mode, which it isn't. As the display gets almost fully drawn - the toolbar is complete but the wallpaper and icons aren't loaded yet - the screen flashes and switches to landscape mode. The screen is drawn to the same point - toolbar but no icons or wallpaper - then I'm dumped back out to the command prompt.

I see:

CODE
# startx
Jan 1 00:02:42 sudo: root : TTY=vc/1; PWD=/home/root; =/sbin/modprobe mousedev
Jan 1 00:02:43 input.agent[1082]: ... no modules for INPUT
Removing empty element from the valid list of fontpaths
Shutting down switchevd: Jan 1 00:02:46 switchev: switchevd
Starting switchevd: Jan 1 00:02:47 switchev: Starting swit
pdaXrom [Husky]
Removing empty element from the valid list of fontpaths


This output is truncated - I guess by the switch from one screen mode to another - and I don't know how to see the full output. The above is just as it appears on my screen.

If I startx again at this point, everything goes exactly the same, except the "... no modules for INPUT" line is omitted. I see that line only once per boot.

The behavior is the same whether my clamshel is in portrait or landscape mode.

Can anyone give me any suggestions?

I installed RC12 on my C860 last night and set up my CFU-1 USB host card. I was able to mount a USB flash drive and access it properly.

I decided to have another go at getting my USB mouse working. I created the following device nodes:

/dev/input
/dev/input/mice
/dev/input/mouse0

I modprobed mousedev and hid.

I plugged in my USB mouse and saw in dmesg that the mouse was detected.

I then tried cat /dev/input/mice. No error was returned but no data was dumped to the console when I manipulated the mouse.

I tried cating /dev/input/mouse0 with the same result.

I created more device nodes:

/dev/input/mouse1
/dev/input/mouse2
/dev/input/mouse3

and tried cating them.

For each of those, I got an error that said that the device didn't exist.

When I removed the USB mouse, I got the same error for /dev/input/mouse0.

This suggested to me that /dev/input/mouse0 was properly mapping the USB mouse, and it seemed that everything *almost* worked - but not.

I tried using usbmouse instead of mousedev with the same results.

I looked around on the net for some clue as to what I could try next. Everything I read seemed to say that after modprobing the modules and creating the device nodes, I should be able to see mouse data when I cat the device. No one provided any further troubleshooting information; it seemed to be something that should "just work."

The really frustrating thing is that last time I fooled around with this, I *was* able to see mouse data on the console, and I feel that I did the exact same thing to accomplish this. Yet, this time, I was less successful.

The mouse I'm using is the same as I used last time, and one that I've been using successfully with my laptop. When I connect it to the CFU-1, the mouse lights up (it's optical). I don't think there's any chance this is a hardware issue.

I'm by no means confident that the corgi xserver has mouse support, but it seems like I should be able to get mouse data on the console in any case.

Has something changed in the ROM to make this less possible?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I might try?

I would really, really like to get this to work.

vncviewer in the unstable feed doesn't work with RC11 on my 860. This is because its looking for libstdc++.so.5, which is sadly absent. After some fiddling, my man scogan figured out how to get it working.

Make a temp folder to goof around in:

CODE
mkdir tmp
cd tmp


Get the RC9.1 version of libstdcxx:

CODE
wget http://mirror1.pdaxrom.org/rc9.1/feed/libstdcxx_5.0.5_armv5tel.ipk


It may be that you could simply use the package manager to install this ipk. We weren't sure that the package would install cleanly and not break stuff, so we extract the needed file manually.

Unpackage the IPK:

CODE
tar zxvpf libstdcxx_5.0.5_armv5tel.ipk


Now unpackage the data package contained therein:

CODE
tar zxvpf data.tar.gz


Now copy the relevant file into /usr/lib:

CODE
cp ./usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.5 /usr/lib


Finally, symlink the file to its appropriate name:

CODE
ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5


Now vncviewer should work!

The humorum Ratoc CFU-1 driver has associated modules that ostensibly support, among other things, USB Bluetooth adaptors. I have an Orange Micro Blue2 adaptor I'd love to get working.

When I modprobe the bluetooth module and plug in the Blue2, dmesg says:

hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 4
bluetooth.c: found interrupt in
bluetooth.c: found bulk out
bluetooth.c: found bulk in
bluetooth.c: USB Bluetooth converter detected
bluetooth.c: Bluetooth converter now attached to ttyUB0 (or usb/ttub/0 for devfs)
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.
bluetooth.c: usb_bluetooth_probe - improper number of endpoints. Bluetooth driver not bound.

There is a device at /dev/usb/ttub/0; if I cat /dev/usb/ttub/0 I don't get the "no such file or directory" message, so it seems as if it is to some degree working.

I cannot figure out what to do next, though. I'd sure appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks!

I'm trying to get wavemon compiled for pdaXrom to aid in setting up a largish 802.11 network. I'm getting errors in the configure stage (see other thread, "C Compiler Cannot Create Executable"). Has anyone already compiled wavemon? Would anyone with a working development environment be willing to compile it?

Thanks!
