PS3000Acon segfaults under Fedora 64-bit

Post by notserpe » Thu Apr 25, 2013 6:36 pm

I recently downloaded ps3000a.tgz and attempted to capture some samples with a 3204A under 64-bit Fedora, and quite disappointedly PS3000Acon segfaults when attempting to do a capture...

The steps I took were:

a) untar ps3000a.tgz

b) unarchive libusbpico_1.0-1_i386.deb with "ar xv"
b1) copy include files to /usr/local/include
b2) copy 32-bit libraries to /usr/local/lib

c) unarchive ps3000alinux_1.1-1_i386.deb with "ar xv"
c1) copy include files to /usr/local/include
c2) copy 32-bit libraries to /usr/local/lib

d) this requires glibc-devel.i686 and libgcc.i686 installed on 64-bit fedora

e) PS3000Acon.c has incorrect header #included
e1) there is a version mismatch #include
should read #include since the archive comes with libps3000a-1.1
e2) change #include version 1.0 to 1.1

f) compile PS3000Acon
f1) gcc -m32 PS3000Acon.c -oPS3000Acon -lps3000a -lusb_pico-1.0
f2) compile successful

g) run PS3000Acon


i) gdb is useless since no symbols:
#0 0xf7e858d8 in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/
#1 0xf7e75195 in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/
#2 0xf7e686f8 in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/
#3 0xf7e64d65 in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/
#4 0xf7e8536f in ?? () from /usr/local/lib/
#5 0x4ed49adf in start_thread () from /lib/
#6 0x4ec4f42e in clone () from /lib/

j) whatever the opposite of PROFIT! is...

Where's the source?!

Sorry but we do not provide the source for our drivers. We will be looking at these shortly.
