Driver for Ess-Allegro

Hi,
Browsing the News, I have just learned that there is a Driver available
for the ESS Allegro Sound Chip. I have tried to get the qpr-file
from Igor Kovalenko’s page, but that did not work - the installer says I
have no license! :frowning:

Getting the tgz files did not work eather; clicking the link sent me to
some ATT web-page.

Any info on how to get the driver is welcomed

Norbert

Damn it, I wish somebody explained why this happens to some people and not
to others. I know people who got the .qpr from that same page and I did
install from there myself, it worked. But I’ve heard complains like that on
several occasions.

QNX, would someone care to enlighten us? What is the deal with goddamned
license? Should I just remove license URL from package?
I will upload driver source tarball tonight.

Hi Igor

Pleasantly surprised to find Allegro drivers for my HP Omnibook laptop!
But I ran into the same license problem. I downloaded the qpr and executed
this on it:
pkg-installer -u .qpr

The first time I clicked Install, it complained about the license.
Again I clicked on the Install, it went a little ahead and showed me the
modules that were gonna be installed. I clicked OK (or whatever button) and
then it again complained about the license and wouldn’t install…
Being the way I am, I clicked Install AGAIN, and this time bingo!
pkg-installer crashed with the famed memory fault (core dumped) message!!
Problem with the installer or the package??

Waiting to hear Allegro sing for me :slight_smile:

Thanks for the great work!

I guess that means installer really wants internet connection if there’s
license URL in a package. How dumb of you, QNX ;]

You are right I guess.
Coz I didn’t have internet access while trying to install ur driver, no modem
till some one wrties a winmodem driver :frowning:
What about the part where the installer crashed? Is that a bug in pkg-installer?

Also Igor, do you have any clue about writing PCMCIA drivers? The deal is this:
I want to port the Xircom Cardbus 56K modem(supported) driver to the non-CardBus
(ie. true PCMCIA) version (currently not supported). I think apparently there
is no PCMCIA DDK available from QNX. Any pointers would help.

Thanks,
Santosh

I did have an Internet Connection, (i.e. the installer took the files
directly from the home page) and it did not work. !! :frowning:
But what about downloading the src-files ?
Clicking on that gets me to the AT&T-Page! What do I do wrong on that?

Hi Igor,
I see you have in both allegro&maestro packages this string:
QPM:LicenseUrlhttp://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt</QPM:LicenseUrl>
Why you don’t want to include GPL into package and do not send customers into fast changing web
space?
Sorry for my 0.02$ Just some hacker’s point of view :wink:

There are updated packages on the page now, with license URLs removed.
Source tarballs were also uploaded so give it another try. Hope it helps.

Well, 'cos qpr is nothing else then a tarball (gzipped) and hence the qpk’s
are also tarballs (also gzipped), there is nothing esiest than untar it
yourself and copy files where they ought to be.

Of course, it wont act as packages, you cannot uninstall the app (just
manual deletion) and the pre/post install scripts wont be run, but this can
be also done by you.
So, if you really need something and the package manager won’t work it out,
don’t be so lazy and do it yourself :wink:)

Enjoy,
Dr Beer.
