Linux usb gadget HID driver problem


Hi everybody

I use the linux 2.6.35.4 kernel on an embedded board. The problem is that I want to use the usb gadget HID to connect my board on the PC as a HID device. I compile the kernel with all needed options. The g_hid driver is compile as module. When I do a modprobe g_hid an error is return with no such device.
Can someone help me?
Can someone tell me how the /dev/hidgx is created and which is the major and minor number. I have search in the device.txt file and on Internet but I don't find anything. This driver has been developped in the 2.6.35 kernel version and I don't know if someone use it?

Best regards,
Sebastien

The problem is that I didn't understand the documentation about gadget HID. To solve the problem, you just need to add the two structures in your platform support like the example and add a call to platform_register_device with the device structure as parameter. And then the driver is able to be loaded and is working fine.

Regards,
Sebastien

Hate to revive a dead post, but you couldn't point me to the source files that needed modified as well as what the platform_register_device call looks like.

Thanks

Question Anybody with HID Device Tutorials and Code?

Like the Man from Outer Space, I don't want to revive a dead post, but if Sebteams69 or anybody else could post some information about implementing a HID device from the Embedded Linux System, I would appreciate it.

Thanx!

Problem Solved.

step1: go to the link below.
http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...gadget_hid.txt

step2: copy the following two structures from the above link and paste into hid.c
hidg_func_descriptor
platform_device

step3: compile the hid module

step4: load the module

That's it.

I tried your suggestion and still ended up with the same issue. Can you give some more details on how to fix this issue?

Hi

In your hidg_init function in the module, call the following

Code:
int status;
status = platform_device_register(&my_hid);
if (status < 0)
{
	platform_driver_unregister(&my_hid);
	return status;
}
where my_hid is a pointer to platform_device struct.

Also call the following function in your hidg_cleanup function

platform_device_unregister(&my_hid);

Hope this will help.
