This suggestion from Muggins solved the red-flag problem:

Is the device working properly? If it is, you can just open, (in text editor), /etc/rc.d/rc.local, and add a line:
Code:
modprobe ftdi_sio

More suggestions, though this is for a new high speed RS232 cable I spotted, which is advertised as; cross platform, 230kb/s, & 'seen as normal comport'
I think it uses the pl2303 chipset rather than ch341 normally used on these converters, & I believe Puppy4 still has issues
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27992


Perhaps it is the non-standard /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 that is confusing my cqrlog app?

How does one use mknod (sp?) to redirect /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 to /dev/ttyUSB0?

I would really rather not add yet another variable. Right now I amp going from my solitary USB 1.1 port to the FTDI-based device then to my radio. Keeping it that simple I need to figure out why the cqrlog app does not recognize the device since USBview now does.

(NOTE: I'd rather use a pcmcia-to-USB2.0 adapter or a USB-to-4portUSB adapter but will hold off on those to keep things simple.)

I wonder if there is some gender problem/interrupt problem here, since other devices work on that port.


A gender-confused device? Better be careful how you phrase that! Rolling Eyes In several formerly free countries free speech is no longer free and you could be fined or jailed if misunderstood! :-/

Yes, thanks.

I prefer clusty.com but yes, I have searched and E-mailed the Hamlib and cqrlog and Toughbook lists and forums and tried their suggestions.

It is my impression that this is either a Puppy or Panasonic Toughbook CF-28 specific problem as I am suffering a variety of USB problems. Each device I want to use requires a little tinkering.

Thanks for the suggestions - it may well be that I will have to wait for the tweaks to USB in 4.1

mmm, I can't help but feel that we've been told porkies about usb, and have come to expect it to do what was claimed, with a vast array of different devices in the same socket - and I'm not convinced puppy any version will make the difference
I've succeeded in destroying a couple of pendrives because I forgot to unmount powered drives, and have a usb2 4port hub which still sees one of my pendrives with u3 cr*p on it, as connected to a usb1.1 interface, no matter what I do to get it to go, despite everything else seeing it as v2

I'm still waiting to see the results of supplying BarryK with scsi kit to see if I can get my scsi drives bootable, as at the moment I'm running an ide microdrive in a pcmcia adapter in a desktop, with a faulty ide chipset - its a pain trying to get CD and booting a non-existant ide drive together, using pcmcia adapter, since the usb to flash [+microdrive] doesn't boot

Apparently usb is based on scsi protocols, but although it took a while to learn its idiosyncrasies, its rock solid once its running and appears faster than even sata to me, though people say sata is faster, my P3/667mhz with 15k rpm scsi, loads/copies faster than my friends P4/2.8ghz with sata, using videofiles for reference

I've now got some old scsi 250mb zip & 2gb jaz drives to play with too, though I'm not sure what puppy will make of it, especially as I have pcmcia, parallel port & usb adapters to try to see if I can boot them, and otropogo has been struggling with his for a month or more

if you hear any screams...........
now, if BarryK gets dual processor going, I'll definitely upgrade, as a rather large redundant server can come into use, with 840gb of fast scsi drives
sigh..........

I have a question on EMCpup. Does it do packet? I am involved with a small group that is assembling a portable packet station. We have an Asus eee computer that currently has Windows XP on it and haven't had much luck with getting a packet radio program to run on it. The only reason we got the eee with the preloaded XP was because until Target opened it stores here in AK the only way to get the Asus was mail order and this computer was available on Craigslist. So we are not married to XP and would like to try out Linux as an operating system.

Hi Guys I had a request about an error with compiling hamlibs, So I compiled it on 2.14X-v8, next I inquired about which application was the libs for, The app was called Grig, So I figured might as well compile that also, but when I did, there was an error, The error is a naming convention change that gtk did after 2.12, So I went on hunt and found a patch, and then I patched the sources, below Is the compiled program, also I made a prepackage patched sources, so that that won't be a issue in the future either Smile basically its updated for future compiling.
Like I said you'll need also hamlibs,

I can set up a ham wiki for puppy linux at either www.puppylinux.us or at www.zerobeat.net

That's the easy part.....the hard part will be finding folks to actually plug in the content.

An example of a ham-related(although not Linux) is at
http://www.zerobeat.net/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page

Let me know if you or others will help with the project.

Would you rather see it at puppylinux.us or at zerobeat.net?

I could set up a forum at either one for discussions.

I won't do anything til there is some more interest....I've attempted to do several things for the Puppy Community in the past, and they fizzled.

zerobeat.net makes more sense as it is established for the non-Linux apps and Hams are more likely to find the Linux apps nearby.

It will also provide more exposure for Puppy to people who would not otherwise be aware of it.

Do you have a starting list of Ham apps for Puppy?

We can post the Wiki, once populated, on the ham-computers list and the linux for Christians list (several Hams there) and I will find excuses to share the list on several other lists large and small as well as adding it to my personal pages.

There are a number of Hams on the Puppy Forum so we should be able to recruit more participants.

Probably the easiest way to find Puppy-Hams is to search the forum on "ham" and on "amateur radio" and perhaps "digital modes".

WDYT?

Subject description: Puppy Ham Radio Logging for Field Day?
 

The big Amateur Radio Field Day weekend is the last full weekend every June - making it the 26 & 27th this year.

I need a logging app for my laptop and have used cqrlog under Puppy in the past - but it was quite a while ago - I am not using Wary 030.

QUESTIONS:

Which of these should I download and what do I need to do to get them to work under Wary 030, please?

http://www.cqrlog.com/?q=node/4
cqrlog_0.9.3_install.tar.gz
cqrlog_0.9.3_bin.tar.gz
cqrlog_0.9.3_source.tar.gz

I am not really concerned about rig control right now, just need an app to enter contact info. This will help me to get familiar with that part of CQRLog and I can deal with the other features later.

WDYT?
