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...

don't have one of those but for those that have it, have fun!
this works for both, cmd (using ncurses) and X (using gtk)

Oh, cvmiller asks for the software, and bam! There it is. I ask for it a month ago, and no replies.... J/K, thanks for compiling them! It's a pretty cool little device, I use it at work.
BarryW
Well I get a device not found when I try to run the wispy_gtk, or wispy_curses. I can see the device in the devices list, but it has a yellow triangle beside it. Dmesg gives me a not claimed by any active driver message.

Thank you _very_ much, Meanie. Barry, I'd like to hear more about how you use this little guy, and do you have it running on a larger linux machine?

I am headed for Toy-Land (read: San Francisco Bay Area) in a week, this little device is definitely on my shopping list.

Thanks again!

Looking over the kismetwireless page again, it says this app uses libusb. With the XQt cramfs mounted, and the standard Zaurus ROM, doing a search turns up no libusb, which must be why Barry is having problems.

There is a rather lengthy discussion about libusb (and other things) at:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/lofiversion/index.php?t3953.html

Not sure where the "right" libusb is, tho.

I've used it on linux, mac, and windows. I use a mac more often than anything else. The mac software is nicer to look at though. If you go to my website under the computer stuff there is a movies section that has a recording of my microwave running. It's real handy to use to see what is causing wifi drop outs. I used the libusb that's with the software, didn't know if it had the proper driver patches or not. I know there was a guy that had it working over at the kismet wireless site, but I haven't been able to get ahold of him.

since I don't have this lil gadget, i can't really test it. i just added the libusb ipk from the cacko feed cause it let me compile the thing. however, that libusb package is not the latest and you might need to install a newer one. you probably also need a kernel module for that lil gadget and before you ask, my system is not setup to compile any kernel module except for the c3x00 since I do native compiles on the Z.

btw, cvmiller was just lucky I was looking at the wispy stuff when I saw his posting so he was lucky and had good timing smile.gif

And lucky I feel! Thanks. Can you point me to the cacko feed with a URL. I'll definitely give this a try once I get my hands on the little device.

The kismet wireless site _says_ it is a userland tool, which I imply does not require any kernel modules (I hope). I have a few linuxppc machines here I can try it on (once I get one) as well as the Zaurus with the cacko libusb.

Barry, any chance you can tell us which version of libusb you are running on linux (with either synptic or rpm, depending on your flavor of linux)?

Thanks,

that's the code that calls functionality dynamically in libusb. libusb is not statically linked in but loaded at runtime so you can easily upgrade your libusb library independantly.
libusb then probably accesses the usb subsystem via usermode which means there needs to be a kernel mode driver somewhere which accesses the device.

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.

Hmm, that is kind odd, because you did install libusb, right? I ran ldd against the wispy-tools and it looks like it is going to find libusb just fine on my Z:
bash-2.05# ldd wispy_curses
libusb-0.1.4 => /usr/lib/libusb-0.1.4 (0x4002a000)

Can you check to see that you have libusb in /usr/lib/?

Hmm, the sym links don't really matter (I believe) it is the actual ownership of the libusb library itself, and I can see that is owned by root, so it should be ok. Interestly enough your libusb library is a different size than mine.

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.

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:

Bummers! I am sorry to hear that.

OK, I have a little more info on how this thing works. libusb requires usbfs to be available. Unfortunatley in the 2.4 kernel, this must be built into the kernel (not a module). The stock sharp kernel does not have usbfs built in.

I have the sharp kernel source, I can build a new kernel, but after that I am stuck. I don't know enough about how this thing boots to know where to put it, perhaps Meanie has some more info there. Perhaps the Guyhelm ROM includes usbfs, I'll have to do more research. But that appears to be the stopping point for the moment.

Man, that just ain't right!! He (or she) should share the goodness!! It's probably the guy on the kismet forums.

Saw a link from another section of the forum. The ThinkGeek link consumer action shot shows this thing hooked up to a Z! Did someone just make a composite shot, or is it actually working?

Yes and I can testify your honor! He basterdized the sl-6000 with twinkly lights! ph34r.gif

Anyway, Curious to see what this does cuz my c-3200 has no adhoc and cannot make it work with previous wifi sniffers.

You need to get yourself an ambicom wifi card. Kismet works on my 3200.

ohh man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks! I knew someone here had an answer. Does it support adhoc? and post all files needed to get it to work or what you did.

No clue on adhoc, never tried it. I'm running the latest cacko heavy rom, and it just works. It also works with pdax, and openZ. Okay, this is the right post... It is slightly modified though. Added a rp-sma connector to it so I could attach my directional antenna to it. It's probably not the strongest set up for it but I did fill the entire end with epoxy.

I'm the one that posted on the kistmetwireless.net forums about successfully compiling Wispy-Tools on the Zaurus. That was back in March.

I was using the most recent version of pdaXrom (at that time). I installed gcc, gcc-headers, make, pkgconfig, and libusb on my Zaurus from the feeds. After installing those, everything compiled fine. I did make a few tweaks to the source code to make it look better on the zaurus (changing the default font and screen size).

I'll try to find time to reinstall pdaXrom to make sure I can get it to successfully compile there. Since this is in the X/QT forum, I'm assuming the people in this thread want to get it to compile on a Sharp-like ROM? If I can get it to compile on pdaXrom then maybe it'll be easier for us to figure out what needs to be done to get it to work on Sharp ROMS.

Hey, if you're still floating around, what lines did you edit?? I got it running on my Z running pdax, but it is a bit bigger than the display can show.
BarryW
Okay, I've figured out how to get it to fit the screen, but I can't quite figure out how to get the text right.
BarryW
Okay, got it working!!! I emailed wgabsd a question, he replied and that gave me the bump in the direction I needed. Only problem I have now is I don't know how to make an ipkg of it.... I also don't know if it will run in X/Qt. I've got it running in pdax. Here's the c file that I changed.

Hey Barry, this is GREAT news! Any chance you can just upload the binary (the actual executable)? I'll give it a try under Xqt. I've also asked Meanie if he will compile your modified c file for Xqt.

It would be great to get this guy going on my Z!

TIA,

Craig...

Thanks Barry. Unfortunately, it is a no go. Meanie mentioned that PDAXrom uses a 2.6 kernel, and that is why it is working for you. I am not quite ready to give up my QT just yet. So I'll have to continue using my WiSpy on my linux laptop.

Thanks,
