Hi.
Is it possible to hear FM radio in debian like in android ?
I didn't see /dev/radio .
What software to use : gnomeradio ?
Thank you all.

can you analyse the fm radio app in android and see what it does? using strace or something. once you know what kernel driver/device you can ensure debian has the same driver loaded.

I will have to root android. I am not a big fan of rooted android.
But I will try and if I find something I will post here.
Thank you again.

Maybe you can simply run "strings" on the android binary from within termux?

I've no root access yet, but /proc/devices reveals a character device major 224 which is called fm on android.

Thank you . Up to now, I could not find a solution for this.
I will continue investigating.

I've installed some firmwares ( downloaded from repository ). I found a /dev/fm , but not /dev/radio. I don't know if before this firmwares I've downloaded , the /dev/fm already existed. I've installed a radio application, but it has no permission to access dev/fm .
I saw in : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8559612...tion-in-android

that /dev/fm isn't accessible without platform key.

Please, I'd really appreciate if someone can verify if /dev/fm exists in your gemini pda's . Thank you all.

Forgive me, for I am a Linux Noob wink.gif
Do you want this info from people using Android, or Linux (or both) ?

My Wifi only Gemini is only Linux.
but, I do have what looks like a file called "fm" in "/dev/" in the File Manager.

Also exists in mine, but can't access it.

If I try with sudo:
sudo fmscan -d /dev/fm
fmscan: VIDIOC_QUERYCTRL: Operation not permitted


cheers
