Hi Everyone.

There is no "official" Antec/ASETEK Driver available for Linux, so I took it upon myself to create one.

Anyone willing to Beta Test?

Thanks a lot man!

I'll give some feedback but I can see that you haven't been around since making this post... what happened?

You are most welcome!

Do you have a MAC OS X Install?

I'm a bit short of OSX testers..it seems to work perfectly on Linux from what sourceforge tells me.

Little time for overclocking though, hence the forum absence, lots of work to do.

Thanks!

I'm not using OSX ATM but when I build my Intel rig I will be running a "Hackintosh" on one of my drives in that PC and I can test it for you then thumb.gif

I'm actually going to hop into Linux and install this driver in a few minutes so I can give you feedback - It looks good from what I saw over at Sourceforge though smile.gif

I got it compiled with "make" (once libusb1-devel was installed) and now I don't know what to do with it... lol

Everything went well when making the file and downloading libusb1 - just don't know where to go from here.

Help smile.gif

Hello Alpha Geek!

Nice work. thumb.gif

I was testing your interface on OS X (actually a hackintosh).
There is a problem in OS X for the fork() implementation, related to keeping/changing details of all structures passed to the child fork process.
That is probably why your kuhler_920.c fails to keep those structures (some of them quite critical) intact.
When I was running it without forking, it worked well (I did not even need the sleep(1) line in main loop on my computer), with
the exception on returning led color values, which is still inconsistent.
Forking the process right at the beginning of main() did the job as well.smile.gif

To compille @ Fedora 18
Code:
sudo yum install libusbx-devel

Code really needs to be on github, nice work though very please to see some focus toward linux support smile.gif

Thanks for the review and debug help!

Care to submit a patch?

If not, no worries, I finally have my hackintosh up and running, and I can take a look at it.

Thanks!

Thanks! I'll consider posting on github as well.

For linux:
I found out that, in order to use this as a regular user (not root) an udev rule has to be implemented, like:
# antec kuhler 920 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="2433", ATTR{idProduct}=="b111", GROUP="kuhler"
Create group kuhler and then put the user who needs to run this into the group "kuhler".
