Errors trying i-gotU utilities on Linux

Asked by Graham Dicker on 2014-06-18

Compiled OK as far as I can tell but when I run it with the command

./igotu2gpx -v --action info

I get errors like this

Interface 0 already claimed by kernel driver, detaching
Command: 930101030000000000000000000000
Protocol violated : Invalid response packet: 303439
Command: 930101030000000000000000000000
Result:

Command: 930a00000000000000000000000000
Result: d70e0500031800010b0c

and then it crashes after more messages like this:

Command: 930101000000000000000000000000
Result:
QThread: Destroyed while thread is still running
QWaitCondition::wakeOne(): mutex lock failure: Invalid argument

Using OpenSuse 12.2. My i-gotU is a model GT-120.

If I remove the call to cleanup() near the end of the info() and dump() functions then it does print out sensible information but hangs until I press Ctl-C.

What should I try please?

Hi Graham,

best thing to try is to use a different usb port/no usb hob or a different pc. It could be that you have a different version of the GT120, but I wouldn't think so.

Cheers

I tried a different port but the problem still exists. There is no usb hub. I don't have another pc. I have been concentrating on trying to understand the purpose and action of the semaphore and Mutex in IgotuControlPrivate class and how they control the threading on the assumption that if I can understand that then I can start to track down where it goes wrong. Do you have something like a design document that gives an overview of how it all works?

Documentation of the protocol is in the HACKING file.

The semaphore/mutex are only used to relay the commands to the worker
thread. Everything is done in the reset/write/info/contents/purge
methods of IgotuControlPrivateWorker.
