I just set up the system to disable USB autosuspend.  I used the kernel options approach (usbcore.autosuspend).  Going to do some testing this weekend to see if that makes a difference.

I did try the low_latency approach but I still have the occasional ioctl() call delays.

In the shell script that executes the calibration program (which calls the delayed ioctl), I added a while loop after the kill command and have it wait until the program has actually been killed.  What I've now noticed is that the kills are never immediate, so there is something going on under the hood which is ignoring my kill signal.  I would guess at the kernel level.

I really hope that the disabling of the autosuspend works, because I'm not looking forward to digging into and debugging kernel code :/

Version 0.12.7 is available from the untested repository

Versions newer than this require QT5 which is really not all that well tested in 7.1

If you install it, let us know if it works for you so we can move it to the stable repos.

Hi all,

I've tried a search for Stellarium in the Gslapt repositories but no success. Can anyone tell me how i can find and install Stellarium on VectorLinux 7.1.

You may need to install python-pip (with slapt-get or GSlapt) first.

Try installing with pip, as root:

# pip install remarkable

If that doesnt work, we can create a package for you, let us know

Hello, I need a Markdown editor for a blog. I've used 'Remarkable' and 'Retext' (both Python based) running on Debian platforms. Could someone help me get something set-up on Vector 7.1?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks fellas.  My brain is dumb sometimes. :)  I was thinking of classic serial ports.

I'll do some testing and report back.  I can't manually reproduce the problem, so testing may take some time.

What about this?

Code: [Select]
# setserial /dev/<tty_name> low_latency
Worth the try :)
I haven't done anything with USB power saving.  Thanks for the suggestion - I'll look into it.

Isn't setserial specific to serial ports only?

AFAIK USB ports are serial ports.
