Bug Description

Event though the kernel driver and X11 driver are available in source from and I can build for armel by myself, one key component nwfermi_daemon source is still missing. According to code, seems this saemon coverting hidraw data to standard linux event data, which can by recognized by GUI system like X11.

Need at lease the armel daemon to be provided if sourcce can't be opened so that it can be used with ARM system.

Is it very difficult to enable ARM build? I can help test it since I have ARM boards at hand.

Hi,

I have attached an arm build, perhaps you can test it for me

Thanks! It works pretty good on Pandaboard(TI OMAP4) with natty and 3.0.3 kernel. I haven't successfully done multi-touch test basically because I don't know how to test under Ubuntu.

BTW, I rebuilt driver and xf86driver for ARM.

Jiandong, I am also trying to get the fermi module to work on arm (Pandaboard), I have a funny issue, I never get a /dev/nwfermi device, even though the module builds and logs messages about the monitor when I plug in the USB..

After digging a bit, it seems that the fermi_probe function is called twice, first time it finds the endpoint, second time, the interface-address is 0x200 higher and two endpoints, none of which are bulk-in is found:

But alas, no /dev/nw* devices.. The same driver on my x86 machine seems to work perfectly.

Jiandong Zheng, thank you for your suggestions, I should have mentioned that I'm on Android, I managed to get it work by manually mknoddin' the device files onto the sd card from my ubuntu pc, your suggestion is what made me realize that this might be the issue, thanks! :)

Since the x86/64 deb can't be used in arm, I repackaged the driver as source only dkms deb as attached, which can directly used in arm device. I've verified that it runs properly in Precise armhf. A binary only armel daemon pkg should be created soon.

As djp just fixed X input driver, I created deb for armhf as well as binary daemon pkg. So, for Ubuntu Precise ARM (default armhf), just install nw-fermi-dkms_0.6.5.0_all.deb, nwfermi-daemon_0.6_armhf.deb and xf86-input-nextwindow_0.3.4~precise1_armhf.deb will enable the touchscreen support.
