Hi, 'scuse delay, been bogged down trying to (learn how to) resuccitate several old debian linux servers for a community radio station (eek!) The thread mentioned above points to your patch, is that all of it? I tried poking around your p4 area but didn't spot anything else related. > > I'm generally interested in whether linux applications using libusb are > > more likely than not to work on FreeBSD, operational differences between > > libusb on FreeBSD and linux, and whether our new USB stack has changed > > anything in that equation at all? > > As a rule, libusb stuff will work.

Thanks, but please humour my ignorance - would one install linux libusb in /compat/linux for linux apps, as well as the freebsd port for native? Looks like I need to hang out in freebsd-emulation@ and read lots. Any other pointers (anyone)? I'm really hoping to use a FreeBSD box to talk and listen at 400kHz(+) iicbus with a small gadget we're designing, and everything I've seen, eg the Aardvark, is (apart from 'doze of course) linux-only using libusb, including phidgets. cheers, Ian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
