Hello all! I received my ezcap dongles a while ago, and just found time to get things configured and installed. It works... but I get a load of I2C problems. I read about these problems being solved in the new e4k driver. I can't seem to find that driver though. Help! I installed a package called 'balint256-gr-baz-90a0e11', and after a fight got it to work (see PS). I have Gnuradio 3.6.1 compiled, and I can receive WBFM and some other signals. Frequently, I get a status message about I2C problems, and the only way I found to solve them is unplugging the dongle. Can anyone indicate what to do? John PS: When I installed the package, gnuradio complained about not finding module 'baz'. After a while, I found that it got installed in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages, even though the distro uses /usr/local/lib64 as base for python 2.7. As such, .../lib is not in the path and baz wasn't found. Simply moving the site-packages/baz directory to the correct lib64 solved that problem.

It was based on the early osmo stuff anyway. Great - it works. I compiled the osmo package (had to move it manually again, as cmake doesn't respect the lib64 directories), but it works fine, and quite stable now. I was somewhat surprised: - that in the single I2C mishap I had, there still was no recovery possible, except reinsert the dongle. - though several reference indicate that e4k has to be selected in the properties dialog, it doesn't appear here. just the normal e4000, which is magically stable now.
