After 3 reinstalls I found out that the instalation script failed because i mounted something on /mnt. In my case I had mounted the packages iso file on /mnt to execute the installer script. But it seems that the /mnt is also needed during the install.
I just wanted to let it know in case ...


Developers / Re: GSD to interface USB device

So, I am going to create a new device. I found that the Environment - Generic IO #79 is the best existing template that defines the k8055 IO board. I will take this one as an example. However I  don't understand if i should define child devices for every Input and Output ot that this is later handled with scenarios. Because when I start the add model wizzard and need to choose "What type of device will this be? Are you going to be writing code for it?" then you also can choose to create "children of a dce device, like security sensors, light switches, etc."
I would like te be sure to create the device in the best way before i start programming the actual usb board interfacing.

I have read in the Docs that GSD supports USB devices too, but when I create a new GSD device I can only choose the com port or a tcp port.
I would like to interface a velleman IO board for home automation. This board has 4 logical inputs, 8 logical outputs and also DA and AD inand outputs.
There exists already a linux driver for this device I also found a ruby lib-usb binding
So I am looking for the best aproach to interface this board from linuxmxe. I know some c (++) and can learn the ruby language but I first would like to know what the experts would like to advice for this ?
1) Use the existing linux k8055 C software.
2) Use the ruby usb lib-usb binding to talk to the hardware.
3) something else (better) ?

kind regards,
