UHID device for GIMX
« on: January 15, 2017, 12:27:46 PM »
Hi All,

  I've attempting to use piCore to run the GimX package. I've had some success in that I've converted GimX to a tcz, and satisfied all the dependencies (might sound trivial but I'm new to TC!).
  GimX now starts up, recognises the devices and establishes comms with the interface, but then fails with a error opening the /dev/uhid device.
  It's correct, I don't appear to have a /dev/uhid device - can anyone suggest how I rectify this?

Is uhid kernel module loaded? If not, load manually

sudo modprobe uhid

After that /dev/uhid will exist.
