Re: Consistent USB problems with RFID reader

Thanks a lot for posting this. However this fix doesn't help. Could you post the modified driver sources, and do you have an example program?

Re: Consistent USB problems with RFID reader

I tried with both "dwc_otg.fiq_fix_enable=0" and "=1" in cmdline.txt and it doesn't make a difference.

Will also try to rebuild the kernel as suggested in USB FIQ testing.

Re: Consistent USB problems with RFID reader

Thanks for investigating! What do you mean by "not very stable". Did it work consistenly after that first failure, or did you get sporadic faults afterwards?

Consistent USB problems with RFID reader

I'm experiencing reproducible problems using the SkyeTek M7 RFID reader with the Raspberry Pi via USB 2.0. SkyeTek offers a driver/API for the RFID reader that uses libusb-0.1 and works perfectly fine on a PC and the latest Ubuntu or Debian. However, with the Pi + Raspbian I always get read errors, ...

I didn't need any other steps than copying the image to the SD card. You said you copied kernel.img as well - doesn't that mean you're using a kernel compiled for hardfp now?

Problems with libusb-0.1-4: usb_interrupt_read fails

I'm trying to get an RFID reader driver to work with the Raspberry Pi (works with a normal Ubuntu Linux on an x86 laptop, for example). I tried both Debian Wheezy variants without success. The driver implementation uses the legacy version of libusb (0.1.x). This is the code fragment that fails to re...

When starting the X server (startx or via TightVNC server), I only see the desktop (with the raspberry background image) and desktop icons.
