I can't see my GPS board - is my expensive Omega2 Pro dead on arrival?
[update] works just fine with an old Omega2+, just not with the new pro. The pro works otherwise, I can Telnet in, run a demo program on the display, etc ...
If you read the thread, please keep this in mind & tell me if my board is dead, or if I need to configure it somehow. Thanks
I have just done a factory reset. I am reading Using the GPS Expansion in the official docs.
I have attached the GPS board to an Omega2 Pro, but I don't see any entry in /dev nor does the ubus command show the board. There is a blue LED glowing, so I would expect it to be ok
Is there some initial setup of which I am not aware? For instance, see here - do I need to do any of that?
opkg update opkg install ogps ubus list /etc/init.d/rpcd restart ubus call gps info
Just thought that I would ask here before trying, a I am wondering why it is not in the offical docs if it is necessary
@mawg if your asking do you need to do those commands, yes you do. if you did opkg update & opkg install ogps it would help to see the output of those commands. also a factory reset reinstalls the firmware already on the omega2.
it will help in long run to update the firmware first.
@Douglas-Kryder Thansk for confirming that. I am surprised that I did not find it in the official documentation
This is indeed mentioned in the docs:
This post is deleted!
@Lazar-Demin I followed the docs - and then that URL I referenced, which is pretty much the same thing.
Despite that, and despite the fact that the docs say
The device driver will already be installed and Linux should recognize the device automatically.
I just can't see the GPS board (e.g in "ubus list" after "opkg install ogps") which is attached to an Omega2 Pro.
Do you think I have a dead GS board? Although the blue LED on it is lit.
Aha! I dug out an old Omega 2, which and the GPS board works just fine with that.
So, now the question is how to get it working with the pro board ...
Thanks again for your help
@mawg you could establish a serial connection and view what is happening while you connect and disconnect the gps board. hopefully, you have managed to update the firmware of the omega2+.
