Hi Rytz,

I would try the easiest first. USB devices are not great for latency, event a long cable can cause a lot of problems. Did you try a different cable? Are you using an USB hub? I recently experienced a lot of problems installing a weather station and it turned out to be the USB hub.

HTH, Rodrigo

VL Version: VL64-7.1 Standard
Kernel: 3.8.16 #2

Preface: I've been poking around the internet looking for more information on ioctl connect delays but haven't really found much.  Any suggestions or feedback appreciated.

I have a C program that calibrates joysticks using ioctl calls.  The code in question looks like below:

Code: [Select]
usb_ioctl.ioctl_code = USBDEVFS_DISCONNECT;
ioctl(fd, USBDEVFS_IOCTL, &usb_ioctl);

usb_ioctl.ioctl_code = USBDEVFS_CONNECT;
ioctl(fd, USBDEVFS_IOCTL, &usb_ioctl);

The 2nd ioctl call with USBDEVFS_CONNECT is the culprit.  I'd say 90% of the time, this call takes about 5ms.  The other 10% of the calls can take anywhere up to 10 seconds.  The delay time is random, so sometimes it is less.

What I have tried so far is to put the calibrator in a loop and force it to retry if execution time goes past 50ms.  So far this doesn't seem to help, as the newly spawn calibrators just keep delaying as well.

I have some code to manually reset the USB ports (to simulate a physical reconnect) but haven't tried it out yet.  I was trying to avoid the resetting of ports just in case that leads to other problems.  Other than these random delays in the ioctl call, I haven't experienced any other hardware related problems.

Any info or help on debugging the problem or fixing it would be great.  Thanks!

Can you post which ralink chip does not work for you?  Maybe we just need to enable support for it on our build.  And are you using the 32bit or 64bit build?

ralink 3370 ...

also we need channel 13 and 14, this  is japn, not north america  canada!!!

Nice mods. That is what we mean when we say "Personal Computer".  :)

I later added fluxbox along with xdg menumaker to add applications to the fluxbox menu.

Using thunar as the file manager, already posted how to get folder icons and devices to show

I added nitrogen from slackware 14.1 for selecting wallpapers and added the wifi and volume to panel

this all seems to be working fine, would be nice to see nitrogen and volti added to the repository at some point and would also like vobcopy.

for now this works so adding a shot.

Have naturally been using the new Vector linux 7.2 beta version, so far no obvious issues.

customizing xfce was this session, no issues. Here are some screenshots:

 I  added a vertical task tray panel which includes a terminal, timer, a quick access button for the forum/with a sub menu for frequently used settings, and the window switcher. I installed hard info. panel launchers can easily be modified with the usual right click select. This panel is on auto hide

Open applications icons appear in the lower menu panel which blend in nicely with the main menu and current date. with no open apps the panel auto centers

the upper panel included the current time and weather along with right to left a launcher for browser, notepad, downloads folder and a final launcher that opens a media samples folder, you could add any app or a sub menu to launch what you like.

Both upper and lower panel auto hide when windows are open full screen providing access over the open window while otherwise remaining on the desktop for quick access.

Removable drives are set to open the file manager and show files and folders when plugged in (via the removable drives dialog in settings). naturally desktop icons like trash and home can be toggled on via desktop right click menu.

This custom xfce is using included icons and application with the exception of installed applications, ie hardinfo. The wallpaper was posted in wallpapers previously as was the darker theme.

all the applications I chose from the menu appear to function as expected.

a very nice experience so far, Thanks so much

pls .upload newer kernel 4.7.x onto test repo...
current 4.4.19 kernel doesn't support  wifi with ralink chipset yet,
also no channel  13 and 14 can be scanned   for wifi users at japan and isrelaie....
vl.7.2 must offer better support to 4G  modem  such as e3276...
