Keyboardless Node

Post by Ross » Wed Feb 27, 2002 9:53 pm

I am attempting to setup a node that has no keyboard but does have a serial
touchscreen. When I boot up, directly into photon bypassing phlogin, the
touchscreen will work but my app will not load. I have removed the kbd
entry in my input.<node> file. Any help would be appreciated and if you
have questions please ask. Thanks.

How are you starting the 'Input' driver for the touchscreen, and how are you
starting yor App?

the contents of my //2/etc/config/trap/input.2 file are:
-----------------begin sample---------------
kbd fd -d/dev/kbd
smartset -b 9600 fd -d/dev/ser2
-----------------end sample-----------------

if i remove the kbd enty to the file and restart the machine with no
keyboard the input driver is never started and the system is useless. some
help, any help is badly needed. thanks.

Ross,

Try not using 'inputtrap' and remove, or move, the 'input.2' file. Let the
'ph' script start
the standard Input task for you and then add the command line:

Input smartset -b 9600 uart -i3 -p2e8 &

to the "/.photon/phapps" file. Be sure you do not have a Dev.ser running
that is also
attempting to use that same serial port. This is the configuration we use
here.

If the system still does not start because the keyboard is not present then
you may want
to modify the 'ph' script to not start Input.

hope this helps.

Ivan
