Linux Kongress 2010 slides

Added by about 10 years ago

I've also uploaded my slides from Linux Kongress 2010 to the Wiki. They are somewhat outdated, but contain a much more complete overview of the DECT stack and should provide a better picture than the OsmoDevCon slides to people not versed in wireless communication technologies.

libnl 3.2 merged

Added by about 10 years ago

I've merged libnl 3.2 into the DECT libnl tree and converted libdect to the new libnl file hierarchy. Unfortunately this means libdect will currently not build against older versions of libnl, to fix this I'll probably convert the build system to automake.

Please test and report.

Linux 3.8 merged

Added by about 10 years ago

I've merged the latest major kernel release (v3.8) into the DECT tree. There are no changes affecting the userspace API, everything should continue to work without further changes. The current tree can be fetched at ​git://

Since I'm currently traveling and don't have any hardware for testing available, please let me know whether things are still working fine for you.

Short-term plans are to finish support for the SC14452 and US-DECT during the OsmoDevCon? next week. If someone is interested in providing me remote access to a CoA Type III device, I'll also look into finishing support for these.

Linux 3.5 merged

Added by almost 11 years ago

I've merged the DECT tree with the Linux 3.5 release. Experimental support for US-DECT for the UPCS band will also be pushed out soon.

Linux 3.1 merged, P640j MAC/DLC/NWK layer support

Added by over 11 years ago

I've merged the DECT tree with the Linux 3.1 release and pushed out experimental support for P640j (Wideband) in the MAC/DLC/NWK layers. Besides the kernel, libnl and libdect need to be rebuilt (Build_instructions).

Asterisk wideband support is still unfinished and chan_dect will currently not build cleanly, only update if you intend to work on chan_dect yourself or want to play with wideband using the libdect example code.

P640j/wideband support

Added by almost 12 years ago

I've pushed out P640j/wideband support, so far only for the 1442x firmware, the upper layers still need a bit of work. P640j can only be enabled if the PCMCIA driver is deselected and requires a firmware rebuild. I'd appreciate feedback whether things are still working properly on the PCMCIA devices.

Linux 3.0.0-rc3 merged

Added by almost 12 years ago

I've merged with Linus' current tree, due to a newly assigned netlink family, the NETLINK_DECT value has changed. Both the libnl and libdect trees need to be updated as well and recompiled against the current set of kernel headers (specifically, using the current include/linux/netlink.h file).

Refer to the Build_instructions if in doubt.

Git problems should be fixed

Added by almost 12 years ago

Thanks to laforge, the git problems should be fixed now. Apparently OpenVZ by default limits the amount of sockets per instance to 1% of the global limit. Git is forking wildly, creating lots of orphaned sockets until it hits the limit.
