Ginkgo USB-CAN Part 4

Posted 02-25-2019 at 11:26 PM by Indymaynard

Another post? Is this guy crazy? Yeah, probably. I hit a positive point in the project, and that helps. Look, between other electronics stuff, guitar, running, drinking, and whatever else, I carved out some time to progress.

Tonight was productive. I learned a lot of cool things. I am going to copy-paste the stuff from notepad (don't judge me, I was lazy) that I discovered. This stuff may only apply to the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee, so be aware of that. I discovered some codes that...

Ginkgo USB-CAN Part 3

Posted 02-24-2019 at 09:03 PM by Indymaynard

So, this project seems like the slowest project in the world...

That's probably because it is. I'll get it figured out one day. At least there is some progress today.

My biggest goal was to get the CAN code that would turn on the stereo and amplifier. Luckily, someone had actually figured this part out already!

A Start Job Is Running ERROR

Posted 02-22-2019 at 12:10 AM by Ztcoracat

If you get this error message upon booting up chances are it's a simple fix.

My Debian system would boot but would be delayed with a 1 min and 30s error message.

A start job is running for dev-disk uuid (exact #'s of the device/HDD) 1 min 30s
To correct the error run blkid and compare it's output to that which is in your /etc/fstab file.
If the 2 files do not match than change the UUID in fstab to that which is shown by blkid.

The purpose of this blog is to provide a guide to Linux C (and C++) programmers as to how to use the Gnu DebuGger, GDB, effectively.

My reasons for writing this are because I participate a great deal in the Linux Questions site and view, plus respond to a number of questions in the Programming forum, and I notice that programmers of various experience seem to be lacking in either experience+knowledge, or initiative, to use the debugger.
