Thread: odyssey - can't set/unset (+/-) pvcd
picon face BY : Csanyi Pal email (remove spam text)


I'm trying to use odyssey for PIC programming on the parallel port.

The new website for odyssey is break down today..

My system is Debian GNU/Linux Lenny with kernel: 2.6.26-2-686.

I did:
sudo rmmod ppdev lp parport_pc parport

sudo odyssey test

and get:
Current Status:
Pwr     = 1    Vpp    = 1    Clk = 1    LVP = 0
DataOut = 0    DataIn = 1
th = 20ns  tl = 20ns

The problem is that that I can't to neither set  nor unset signals:  
p = power  v = vpp  c = clk   d = data (out)
because I get always the abowe mentioned Current Status.

If I load kernel modules with:
sudo modprobe parport_pc

and run

sudo odyssey test

then can I set and unset signals.

Why must I load the parport_pc and parport modules to can set/unset
signals from odyssey because I can read in the setup.txt file this:

directpp - Accesses the parallel port using direct I/O.
Setting up:
 Make sure that no parport drivers are loaded at all. That includes
 parport and parport_pc.

I tried to wrote a mail to maintainers:

but get no answers at all.

Any advices will be appreciated!
