Cm19A Linux Arm [Mochad]
« on: July 21, 2012, 03:23:51 PM »

Hello everyone,

I run a cm19a to capture input from a motion sensorwith mochad.  It works fine on my linux mint 13 system on my x86 netbook.

The issue however, is my Arm (Tegra 2) device.  It runs a 2.6.x.x kernel. I have xfce running on it and its stable, I installed mochad and netcat no problem.  When I plugin the cm19a it gets detected fine:

Code: [Select]
n  1 00:01:15 adam kernel: [   55.524391] Firmware version = wl0: Sep  7 2010 10:38:12 version 4.218.248.5
Jul 21 19:04:32 adam kernel: [  125.468910] usb 1-1.1: USB disconnect, address 3

Jul 21 19:04:43 adam kernel: [  136.495553] usb 1-1.2: Product: USB Transceiver
Jul 21 19:04:43 adam kernel: [  136.495588] usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: X10 Wireless Technology Inc
Jul 21 19:04:43 adam mochad[1598]: starting
Jul 21 19:04:43 adam mochad[1599]: Found CM19A
Jul 21 19:04:43 adam mochad[1599]: In endpoint 0x81, Out endpoint 0x02

So it seems okay.  I can then nc localhost 1099 and it waits like my other device, normally commands would be output but with the tegra/arm device it just sits at netcat and never shows any commands the motion sensor sends.  If I plug the cm19a back into my netbook x86 it captures the commands from motion sensor fine.

Any ideas what it could be or what I could try to troubleshoot? There are no other errors in the messages log....

Thanks

Try netcat from your mint system to the arm system. Some Linux systems ship with netcat(nc) that does not work!

By the way, what is the name of the Tegra 2 device? I am looking for something with more horsepower than my WiFi router for mochad and home automation.

Thank you - may try that!  The device is a notion ink adam tablet.

However, if you want a device for home control that is compact and fully functional go with a trimslice.  They are amazing.
