Unable to correctly mmap DMA buffer in user space.view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have developed a driver for a PCI Express card which we also developed. The driver allocates a 16kB DMA buffer using pci_alloc_consistent() which the user space application will mmap(). The problem is the virtual address returned by mmap() in user space cannot seem to access the memory buffer. I test it by writing a known value to the user virtual address. (HowTos)

[ubuntu] 3G Modem, Change Idle Timeout?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running a Virgin Mobile 3G USB modem in 10.10, and have had no problems setting it up. Kudos devs, for the easy set-up. One problem I do have is that the modem times out when idle for 10 minutes or so, and after it disconnects, it won't dial out and I have to unplug the device and then replug it in to get it to respond. So anyone know how to adjust the timeout? (HowTos)
