It works!

No crash, and my little Z-Wave test software works as well.

I just turned on some lights via Linux for the first time...

perfect ;)

could you please tell me the usb id's (man./device).
If you want you could try to add the id to the ZWave device template. That should make it plug and play in lmce after the module is loaded (maybe even gets autoloaded after depmod and such)

best regards and thank you for testing,
Hari

ps: could you please provide me with the actual dmesg output?

EDIT: totallymaxed reported the id's: "Vendor ID is 04FC and Product ID is 0201."

ok. Maybe you want to try it on lmce, too?

Great Work Hari!!!
The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
My other computer is your windows box.
I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.
Q:  What's Red and smells like blue paint?

Hari, I'd love to, but I can't find a source of ZCU101s.  Does anyone have a US distributor with these?

you can buy them from act itself (it's an US company iirc):

Great, thanks!   I'll give them a shot.  I'm looking for a device based on a newer version of the API to play with the current implementation.

Thanks a lot, Hari!  Since those old ACT ZWave controllers aren't sold anymore, this is pretty important.  I just got one of the controllers and we're going to test it and try to make it work for the 0710 release.

You are welcome. Btw, the intermatic ha22 (04FC0204) should also work with this driver. When you modify the ZWave device template please don't forget to also add the two Seluxit usb id's (16c006eb, 1d6f0001).
I don't know if all fixes are in the lmce branch yet (one file got updated in the trunk, ListAvailableSerialPorts.sh is still missing, see notes on that issue: http://mantis.linuxmce.org/view.php?id=3823).

feel free to contact me if you need any assistance.

best regards,
Hari

Greetings. I assume the reference to the seluxit devices relates to the kernel driver at newbielink:http://svn.charonmedia.org/svn/vendor/spcp8x5/ringbuf.c [nonactive] ?
In any case: the driver compiles and loads with 2.6.24, and I have taken the liberty to add the driver to newbielink:http://www.linuxdriverproject.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/OutOfTreeDrivers [nonactive]

Now I just need to read up on zwave to figure out what to get and what to avoid...

no, http://svn.charonmedia.org/svn/vendor/spcp8x5/ holds the driver for the Intermatic HA22 and ACT Hompro ZCU[1,2]01 series. The Seluxit uses the generic usb acm driver.

Thank you for the addition, I also contacted Greg Kroah but I am still waiting for response.

Hari
