Data logger PT-104, Illegal instruction

Postby lena » Mon Sep 21, 2015 12:30 pm

Hi,

I was trying to use PT-104 with Raspberry Pi. I have installed the driver, however when I tried to run usbpt104con I got the message: Illegal instruction. When I ran the debugger I got the following message: Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction. 0xb6f9c0b0 in ?? () from /opt/picoscope/lib/libusbpt104.so.2. Does anybody have any suggestions how to fix the problem?

Thanks.

Hi lena,

Few things to ask first:
1. Which generation/mode of RPi are you using?
2. Which version/type of OS is running on your Pi.
3. Where the driver is coming from? http://labs.picotech.com/raspbian/ or http://labs.picotech.com/debian/ ?
4. Did you try to run the application as root?

SIGILL sometimes jumps out when program calls instruction unsupported by the CPU (or stack is corrupted), thus is it likely that you used binary not intended for your architecture.

Dear Mario,

Thanks a lot. The problem was that I used debian instead of raspbian driver. With raspbian driver everything works ok.

Cheers
