Greetings,

I am new to this forum and I have just purchased the PCI-MAX2007+.
I downloaded the source code for Linux users, but I get this error
when I run make:
rds.c:1: error: code model ‘kernel’ not supported in the 32 bit mode.

I am using SUSE 11.1 32bit.
Is there a config option that I need to run?

THKS

ok,

I build a 64bit kernel. Everything seem to build ok (./configure, make, make install). But when I run modprobe, I get this: FATAL: Module pcimaxfm not found.
can anyone one help? If anymore information is needed I will get for you.

THKS,

Well I am up and running! One problem is that there is not an on/off switch. I decreased the power level to 0(zero) but still was broadcasting.
I need a explanation on that. But for the most part, it works!!!

Nice to see you got it working. Be sure to get the latest revision from the new project location: http://pcimaxfm.googlecode.com/

PCI Max models newer than 2005 doesn't have a TX power toggle as far as I know (I think I asked Marko about this once). When not broadcasting set the power level to 0 and unplug any external power and audio signal.

Additionally, you can park the frequency to band edge or for example 87.000 MHz.
This way any tiny feed-through signal, even if in the order of micro watts, won't
make it to nearby receivers (1 meter or so) and won't be audible.

Thanks for the information,

One final question Dan. Are you going to make the pre-emphasis selectable? I would like to use 75us.

Unfortunately pre-emphasis is not controlled by software.
It is selected with solder-jumper on the board itself
and is preselected for you in the factory.

Post pcimax 32bit linux driver Reply with quote
ok sorted the issue its to do with a cflag in the /src/common/Makefile.am delete this on the cflag line -mcmodel=kernel. and then you will be able to compile on 32bit linux. i have tried this on a stock debian 5 system and the driver fragged the kernel with of panics and traces. tried it on current stable ubunu and seems to work fine without fault. driver needs more work but does work on certail 2.6 kernels and voodoo magic:) many thanks
