I'm looking for a hint for on installing for SUSE 10.1?
I was able to run config and make.
Do I need to generate a RPM and install from there?
It's been a while since I did this, but I think you're right. You need to use something in the OS to convert the make'd file to a platform-specific RPM.
I was never able to get communication between Ubuntu and my Nitrus, so this is about the extent of my experience.
I have it working now... some notes from my install...
* I did not end up making a package, I just needed to run ./config, make, make install
* For a reason I don't understand, I needed to reboot to get rioutil to run...
I was getting an error about the rioutil .so lib missing at first.
* When I went to build the kernel module, I got an error message
"The present kernel configuration has modules disabled"...
I did a 'make oldconfig' to get around this.
* I honestly don't know how/why my install of rioutil is working, since I'm unable to
load the kernel module.
% insmod rio500
insmod: can't read 'rio500': No such file or directory
Also, I do not see anything for the rio in my /dev/usb dir
* I can only access the device as root. Seems like there are several fixes for this
already mentioned elsewhere on the help message board.
I can list, delete, and upload files to my S35S, so I'm happy :)
Next I'll probably check into a GUI for it.
Thanks to all who help us get away from Microsoft!! MP3 player was my last hurdle.
I loaded SUSE 3 months ago and have not needed my old Windows PC yet!
I had similar issues when I installe rioutil. I’m using Archlinuq so I had to find a way to package it for pacman, which was the minor issue.
I had more problems getting rioutil to compile for me. It then worked without the module (which is in the kernel since over a year I think) but only as root. But since some days, rioutil always segfaults when I want to put some files on my Rio S35S. Formatting, listing and informing works without a flaw. Loading songs onto the Rio also works under Windows, so the problem has to be rioutil. I’ll try to install an old kernel, currently, I’m using 2.6.19-ck2.
Which kernel are you using?
My kernel is 18.104.22.168-4-smp. You are using SUSE also?
I'm not familiar with Archlinuq, and I haven't ever re-built my kernel before.
Sorry, I misspelled it. I’m using Archlinux, not Suse. Archlinux is a bit more ‚looking under the hood‘, but it does not need the user to compile his own kernel.
I just tried to acces my rio on my laptop which uses still 2.6.18-serieses of kernel and it worked without a flaw, so tomorrow, I’m going to try it with an older Kernel on my Desktop and tell about the results :)
