it comes down to the fact that I decode and send everything that comes across the input subsystem. I need to find a better way to filter spurious events.

Hope you understand where we're coming from from, it's a little frustrating to have something working one day, and spending alot of money to purchase more hardware that was proven compatible, to only have your entire setup made useless the next day because of an error i did not make, nor have the equip to fix.
...
The error is all yours, if only just for using alpha software in a production environment.  Yes this needs to be fixed, but simply saying that you made no error is bullshit.

tschak: if this is really a regression, it has to be fixed asap. We can't trash existing stuff with new patches. And just as a note, that hid stuff should not really be handled in orbiter.

br, Hari

Zaerc, i tend to agree with the statement above. i can't understand why you would even jump in here and not have anything beneficial to say.  I am aware that it is alpha, but does it really makes sense to say my statement is bullshit, taking into account it was working up until a recent update? i could understand you saying that if i was expecting a new feature or something that has been broken prior to a recent update. so how is the error all mine?  come on dude, i was only making sure that thom didn't take offense to my posts because no disrespect was intended. read the post, i even thanked him for his help in trying to fix it back.  Thom, once again, thanks.  zaerc, take it easy

Everyone is being told regularily to install 0810 and that 0710 is no longer supported.  These 2 posts specifically come to mind:

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8689.msg58754#msg58754
http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8568.msg57650#msg57650

Seems to me that someone testing your alpha software has found a bug that may not have been found otherwise.  How is this the users error?

The more you insult your userbase the less people want to contribute.

Zaerc, Thom, Phenigma & Widescreen.....

cool it please! drop the argument at this point, and stay on thread....

of course this is an issue, and naturally it needs to be fixed.... I'm quite certain that thom will get on to it when he has a chance, he is very busy. We are in an unfortunate, sticky situation.... 0710 is no longer supported (and cannot be, realistically) however 0810 is still in Alpha... please be mindful of what alpha means, even though it is really the only "supported" version available at the moment.

Things will improve, and thom will fix this in due course. In the meantime, lets impassionately report the symptoms. Thom is obviously not experiencing the same issue, so any further data will help him lock it down.

Thom - perhaps there is a simple way in which they can capture the HID stream and send it to you so that you can see the issue occurring and adjust your filtering??

grepping for GenericHIDInterface in the Orbiter log should be sufficient.

ok, guys, do you know how to do this? Find your orbiter log file by looking up its device number in the web admin, then:

grep -i generichidinterface /var/log/pluto/##_LaunchOrbiter.sh.log

where ## is the device number

device number is 31, got error message grep: /var/log/pluto/31_LaunchOrbiter.sh.log: No such file or directory. pulled up above log using grep -i generichidinterface /var/log/pluto/21_LaunchOrbiter.sh.log. 21_LaunchOrbiter.sh.log being the only log under that directory.  Also pulled up the log on the md itself, but it had no mention of genericHIDInterface. pretty sure that the above is not what is needed, but that all that seems to come up remotely close to the request. let me know where to find the correct log if so. thanks alot guys. I appreciate the help big time fellas. thanks again.

short reads happen when the handler tries to read from a device that is no longer there...hmm..

do you not see DecodeEventinFD messages?

yes, could that be due to the removal of another md days ago? should i post sections of the whole log to give you a better idea of what is happening?
