Pb-free/Low-power Platform Cable USB - New Linux Cable driver is available in 9.2


Keywords: windriver, 2.4, 2.6, jungo, impact, libusb, download

If my customers are having problems with the 9.2 Linux cable driver download and install, what can be done? Are there other drivers that we can try?


Starting in 9.2, new USB cable drivers use the libusb Linux library instead of the WinDriver library. The new drivers use the pre-existing USB libraries included with Linux and users are not required to download a new cable driver.

This new cable driver will work for Linux and Linux 64 bit installs.

To enable this new driver, set the following Environment Variable to 1:

The libusb package is included in the RedHat machines that we tested this on, but may not be included in other distributions. Therefore, be aware that the libusb package is required by iMPACT and may have to be downloaded and installed if not present. The package can be downloaded from http://libusb.sourceforge.net/download.html.
