@Turbo: Upstream used to release it in DKMS format, but I don't remember it ever working, and I don't have much time to spend on it.

Better try the HID method - there's 99% chances that you don't need the kernel module at all:

Once HID works, you will not have to worry about DKMS or kernel upgrades, which is far better ;-)

Can you build a DKMS package?

Yep, this kernel module is really legacy - upstream is un-maintained for almost 6 years now, and the kernel module has been reported to cause hard freezes with some configurations.

This being said, I still use it with my RMX and most recent kernels without trouble, and have been trying to maintain it despite the odds, but you should really try HID first.

Then, if you really cannot get it to work with the HID steps from the Mixxx wiki, the kernel module might still work for you: support for the dj control mp3 e2 was shoehorned in one of the patches (this device was never supported by the upstream driver).

But then, please build properly with "makepkg -s" and install with pacman, it will make it easier to troubleshoot ;-)

oh wait a second.. you mean for HID i dont need any kernel modules, huh?
thanks for the hint, i will try that! thank you :)

BangL commented on 2016-03-24 06:59

to be honest... actually i am not even on arch, but on manjaro with linux 4.4.5
so i didnt expect this to run properly anyways^^
the hercules link on that page is down, nothing to get there.
and i also have the old "dj control mp3 e2", which isnt listed on that page.
so i actually gave up for now, maybe i should just get a newer midi controller.

BangL: 'pacman -Rns hdjmod'
Yaourt is not officially supported. Probably better to report this to the yaourt developers.

Btw, you should not even need the kernel module anymore:

I just keep it around, as for some reason my first gen dj console rmx is allergic to HID mappings.

"yaourt -Rsn hdjmod" just killed all my kernel modules.

Edit: had to manually remove the old .ko file and re-run mkinitcpio

@Gimmeapill: yes, this is the issue. I was wondering why the driver would perfectly compile and load but not work...
Anyway, thank you for your answer and sorry I was mistaking. I'll search a bit more next time something breaks.
And thank you for maintaining, it's very helpful.

@horsebot3000: please check if you're not affected by this:

if that's the case, it should just be a matter of modprobing snd_seq_midi

@horsebot3000: thx for the heads up. I didn't spot it as I'm currently on the archaudio rt kernel which is a bit behind, but I'll see if I can fix it (no guaranty though).
