calInit() cause segmentation fault. However, cal sample hellocal can correctly obtain cal version (which is 1.4.515) before seg fault.
Did anyone meet the same problem?
Ubuntu 9.10 (and in general kernels >= 2.6.31) seem to have some problems with CAL. See this thread for similar problems with a previous version of CAL:
As for hellocal, it seems to call calGetVersion before calInit. So it prints out a version number then crashes.
emuller, thank you for the note.
2.6.31-14 is the oldest kernel I can find in 9.10 repository. However, the driver fails to install on that kernel. I don't know why.
Anyway, 2.6.28-17 from 9.04 repository works fine for me!
