I have DeLorme Publishing DeLorme USB Earthmate, rev 1.00/0.04, it is a
gps receiver. I was googling for the entire day and I found out that I
have to include the following driver ucycom into the kernel and remake it.
This is the USB section of my GENERIC configuration file:
# USB support
device uhci # UHCI PCI->USB interface
device ohci # OHCI PCI->USB interface
device ehci # EHCI PCI->USB interface (USB 2.0)
device usb # USB Bus (required)
#device udbp # USB Double Bulk Pipe devices
device ugen # Generic
device uhid # "Human Interface Devices"
device ucycom # gps receiver, added by AC
device ukbd # Keyboard
device ulpt # Printer
device umass # Disks/Mass storage - Requires scbus and da
device ums # Mouse
device ural # Ralink Technology RT2500USB wireless NICs
device urio # Diamond Rio 500 MP3 player
device uscanner # Scanners
# USB Ethernet, requires miibus
device aue # ADMtek USB Ethernet
device axe # ASIX Electronics USB Ethernet
device cdce # Generic USB over Ethernet
device cue # CATC USB Ethernet
device kue # Kawasaki LSI USB Ethernet
device rue # RealTek RTL8150 USB Ethernet
after installing and rebooting, there is no new device in /dev directory.
I can see that that this receiver is represented by /dev/ugen0 and there
are also /dev/ugen0.1 and /dev/ugen0.2.
According to man page for ucycom, it is a bridge between the usb and
serial type access.
I have read many pages and it should appear as /dev/ttyUSB0 in the
system. I tested it under knoppix and it was working perfectly.
Can somebody help me and tell me what do I do wrong?
Do I have to comment some drivers in the config file?
Do I have to use mknod manually to create the device under /dev?
Do I have to use some other driver like pl2302 ora FTD?
pozdrawiam / best regards
