Hi there everyone... After a long evening of trials, I've been able to install gearbox and the gbxsickacfr driver for player 2.1.1... Unfortunately, it doesn't accepts the delay option and I couldn't make the lms200 work with it... Has anyone had any success into using the lms200 on any player version? I've tried doing everything you guys said... And the kernel we're using here is  2.6.24-19-generic.... If anyone has had any success and could mail me or the list saying what is it that they've done in order for the lms200 to work with a RS232 I'd be very grateful...

Thanks in advance,

Víctor Costa da Silva Campos

So you are behind that one as well!

I know.  It's just that when I was fighting this I was in a bit of a rush
and then forgot.

Talking about the ebuild, it was rather difficult to find as not linked
