Hi,
I am trying to get one of my detector working on linux. First I had problem with the Error 417, which I solved using the cc_config.xml file in /home/jan_helebrant/BOINC:


<cc_config>
<options>
<http_1_0>1</http_1_0>
</options>
</cc_config>


However, I still do not send any data to the server and still see 0% progress, although it looks to be ok:

I also looked in /home/jan_helebrant/BOINC/slots/0 and found file stderr.txt containing many errors like this:

Radac $Rev: 560 $ starting...
Warning: cannot query manufacturer for device: error sending control message: Operation not permitted
Could not find any of the devices listed in sensors.xml: Device communication error
Warning: cannot query manufacturer for device: error sending control message: Operation not permitted
Warning: cannot query manufacturer for device: error sending control message: Operation not permitted
Warning: cannot query manufacturer for device: error sending control message: Operation not permitted
Warning: cannot query manufacturer for device: error sending control message: Operation not permitted[/quote]


I googled this thread and via Google Translate followed some advices but I have no idea what is wrong.

I can see the device correctly:
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04d8:f6fe Microchip Technology, Inc.


and have the same also in sensors.xml:
<sensor>
<comment>3.01</comment>
<hardware_id>04d8:f6fe</hardware_id>
<revision>769</revision>
<revision_bcd>3.01</revision_bcd>
<vendor>microchip</vendor>
<product>radioactiveathome.org GRS</product>
<usb_protocol>1</usb_protocol>
<options>
<switch_gmsupply>1</switch_gmsupply>
<reset_counters>1</reset_counters>
<switch_buzzer>0</switch_buzzer>
<switch_backlight>0</switch_backlight>
</options>


Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks

I think you have to follow instructions posted in this thread: http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=46 but remember, that your sensor (v3.0) has different vendor ID (microchip).
