some months ago I bought a VM110/k8055 board.
I only bought it, because it was known to be able
to work together with linux.
During the months I again and again tried it with different
distributions and on different hardware, but I never got it
running. Sometimes I tried it on a windows-machine
with the Demo-software from velleman and it worked.
So the board is working, but not together with linux.
Some days ago I decided to subscribe the linux-usb mailing
list and ask the developers there.
The problem could be located: it’s a timeout-problem.
One of the people there told me, that he remembers there
was an upgrade of the PIC-firmware. After the update the
card should work, because the updfate fixed a USB-communication bug.
My card has the date “2003” on it, but it bought it some months ago.
Somehow I might have got a card from an old charge.
My problem is now: without an updated PIC the card is
completely useless for me. I bought it, because it should be able
to work togehter with linux, but if it does not fit the USB-specifications
and can’t communicate, I have a card thatI can throw away.
What I now need is an updated PIC.
If I could get the card running, this would be wonderful,
because I like, that it has digital as well as analog in/out.
Would it be possible to get a new PIC from velleman?
