[App_rpt-users] Parallel port I/O withchan_simpleusb/usbradiounder Limey Linux

So...(I'm a hacker, not a programmer)...as I understand this, if I get the new sources into my limey box I can compile them with the new source? 

I have a slackware linux laptop where I made my own limey one time, and it worked fine (on a D201 board before you folkis combined that with the D945 stuff)

The ACID distro I downloaded on Saturday has to be right, it works like a champ on the printer port. Also, in the docs it does not mention that pin 11 is available, and I peeked at the source and found that it was, and it did work. The controller I married it to has COS on pin 11, I didn't feel like soldering.

OK, Jim, thanks for the info/insight.

  That's an interesting question.

  Normally, what we do is take a snapshot of the SVN sources and make the 'files.tar.gz' file which
  contains the release version of the sources. This file is used both for ACID and Limey Linux. The ACID
  version of this has been released already. The 1.1.5 version of Limey Linux is still in the "needs to be
  verified" (without the Asterisk stuff first) stage. So, it *is* possible to make these changes "appear" in the
  Limey distro. However, I am going to have to talk with Steve, WA6ZFT and see how he wants to handle
  this.

  Thank you, sir. Are you doing a new Limey store-bought tgz file, just add "dd"? 

  I tried rolling my own, and modified the kernel config for pp compiled in, not a module, and still didn't fly. I gave up and stuck with dsp decode of pl and cos. But I also suspect that the "motorboating" goes away if the software isn't doing all that other stuff, and just looking for a line to wiggle high ot low, etc. THAT allows easy interface to many radios. 

  Take care.

    Well, it would pretty much appear that my suspicion is correct. The PP input
    stuff NEVER worked under Limey Linux, and its pretty obvious why. I will
    update the chan_usbradio and chan_simpleusb code to reflect this.
