Help: using SR-SP2 with GXSM on Ventiotec's Ubuntu 12.04

  • Hello.

    At our lab we are trying to setup a new STM system using GXSM and a Signal Ranger SR-SP2 board.

    I have downloaded and installed the very handy linux-distribution by the folks at (Ubuntu 12.0.4 LTS).
    If I plug my Signal Ranger SR-SP2 to the USB port, I see it being added to the /dev/ folder (/dev/sranger0). I'm also able to send instructions to it using the "loadusb -m" command. But if I open GXSM and choose "SRANGER:SPM" as the "Hardware/Card" (this is what I should do, right?) and restart GXSM, it no longer launches. I only get the following in my terminal session and then I'm back into the command prompt:

    GXSM-DebugLevel/PI-DebugLevel/ForceGDefaults: 0/0/0
    DSPDev :/dev/sranger0

    I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the firmware update file that is placed in the desktop by the linux installer (firmware for STD_SP2 version 1058.out). How do we use/apply this firmware update?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards,
