Ginkgo USB-CAN Interface Part 2

Posted 02-20-2018 at 07:50 PM by Indymaynard
Updated 03-04-2018 at 03:43 AM by Indymaynard

The lack of documentation on this thing is obnoxious. Tenacity might be the only thing to get me through this. If you haven't seen my previous post (if you care), I am trying to write some software to use the Ginkgo USB-CAN interface on my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Ginkgo (I am going to shorten it to this, since it should be pretty obvious what I am talking about) has a PDF associated with it on the Viewtool website which details the API's, though it does a confusing job of it. I should also...

It's been a few years...

My most recent undertaking is an idea that's been done plenty of times before, but I want to do my own version of it. Most importantly, I have learned a lot regarding Linux devices. Expect much more to be added or changed on this before all is said and done.

Simply broken down, my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with a RAQ sound system. This part is only important if you are a Chrysler vehicle owner from the years 2004-2008. It is a decent...

Partitioning

Posted 04-16-2010 at 06:43 AM by Indymaynard

I discovered that I wasn't as wise on partitions as I thought I was. It's a shame it even became necessary for me to need to figure this out, but I guess that when new technology is taking over the old, you will have a short time of pain during the overlap.

There also was a difficult time of figuring out the answer on Google.

I have an older 1U server (Tyan Thunder K8) that has a 4 drive RAID controller (3ware Escalade). I recently upgraded all of the hard drives because...

Kill a headache - EasyBCD

Posted 12-20-2009 at 05:18 PM by Indymaynard

Having just purchased a Sager NP9850 (18.4" Display, Dual nVidia GeForce 280m, 2.53GHz Quad Core Extreme, RAID0) notebook (read; monster), I ran into some difficulties installing Ubuntu. I had a horrible time figuring out the problem, so I decided that it was to the benefit of all mankind that I explain how to work this. My toils involved Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10.

Normally, I would totally condone destroying the plague on my hard drive, but I have family that needs help with...

mod_mono

Posted 11-01-2009 at 03:35 PM by Indymaynard

This is one of those funny subjects that you just can't help but see the irony in. Linux users want to write applications in Microsoft programming languages. I only say Microsoft programming languages because it is well known that any language standard that would otherwise exist is immediately smeared under the desk when Microsoft gets their fingers into it.

Getting back on track, I wanted to mess around with Mono a little bit because...because...hmmmm...because it was there. I found...
