Re: CAN controller

Hi Gerd, After some more testing I have to say that for my testing methodology, I haven't found a stable enough SPI driver (regardless of distro version). It is probably related to the way how the driver has been tested. My current test which I perform goes as follows: Bus analizer/exerciser, one ex...

Re: CAN controller

Hi Gerd, thank you for the pointer. I found this SPI driver but when I tried it with 3.12.y it turned out to be even less stable than the default driver from the rpi branch. I used following driver for the test: https://github.com/notro/spi-bcm2708 As next steps I tried 3.9.y kernel version (default...

Re: CAN controller

After going deeper I noticed that it looks like the select() in candump is hanging. Any ideas gentleman how to bite into it and figure out why it is happening? I tried it with 3.10.y and 3.12.y kernels - the same result. I just tested the update posted on http://lnxpps.de/rpie/ (Update: Just use Ra...

Re: CAN controller

I have another question as I'm still not able to read any packets from my CAN Device. I think it has to do with the bitrate. In the docs it say 20kBit/s should be used for my device and when I test with my USB to CAN it works. But what is the correct parameter I need to use on the rpi? ip link set ...

Re: CAN controller

Hi at all with an indispensable help of this post chain I was able to setup my pican board http://skpang.co.uk/catalog/pican-canbus-board-for-raspberry-pi-p-1196.html and get CAN going without patching the kernel (spi-config is really pretty cool!). I had to recompile the kernel though to include al...
