Re: Short, Oxygen Free Copper, Gold plated USB leads?

Oxygen free copper, and all that stuff from, as IFW put it, hifi esoterism, is useless and just a way to scam people out of their money (and that's 100% true for hi-fi as well). As for gold-plated, you don't want gold-plated unless what you connect to is _also_ gold-plated. In fact you do not want t...

Re: Linux users: What distro are you using?

@ewhac:
Debian unstable always has and always will map to 'sid', unlike the stable version which will update to a new name as versions change. I've been on Debian SID back since potato (or was it tomato) was stable.

Re: Using KryoFlux with Linux

The group is tty, BUT: It's not the correct device. 'ptmx' is just the pseudo-terminal you're logged in to. Is there no /dev/ttyUSB* of any kind?

Re: Using KryoFlux with Linux

I'm on the run (dinner's waiting) so can't fully investigate this at the moment (as in: plugging in the kryo..), but do try 'ls -lrt /dev' and look for any new /dev/ttyUSB device (ls -lrt is reverse time-sorted, i.e. the latest created device file at the bottom).

Re: Using KryoFlux with Linux

(I wasn't monitoring the forum the last couple of weeks so this is a bit late) @isdxman: To get access to the /dev/usb* devices you should add yourself to the group with access to the serial devices. This is much better than executing as root. So, what you do is to - plug in kryoflux (this will make...

Re: Using KryoFlux with Linux

I've tried "dtc", "dtc -c2" and "dtc -h" using both "Terminal" and "Root Terminal" Notice how Harry said "./dtc", not "dtc". You need to tell the shell where the executable is, as it's not in the default path. You do that by either specifying the full path: "/home/user/kryoflux/dtc -c" (or whereeve...

Re: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

2.0b9 works out of the box (with no symlink in /lib) on Debian SID 64-bit.
Looks good!

Re: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

Looks like I figured it out thanks to some help from the Arch devs It doesn't work on Debian SID still. It's got /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 in its image still (check with 'strings'). However, by adding a symlink in /lib on my machine to /lib64 for that file it works, as suggested by an earlier poste...

Re: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

Yes, 64-bit users will probably soon be the majority, if not already. And it's not for faster execution (as in CPU-like faster), it's because modern computers has lots of memory. Or if it hasn't, you will want it, because modern web-browsing needs tons of memory the way web-pages are made these days...
