@salorium: not sure at all, but that could maybe be caused by a conflict with the HID udev rule, or maybe this is not an RMX first generation.
In any case, better use the official method for HID devices:

I have this error when i connect dj rmx :

wow, yes. it works quite beautifully as a HID. thank you very much.

@sentriz: Linux 4.6 not tested.
But yes, this looks more like a version mismatch between your running kernel (4.6.0) and your modules (4.6.1), so I'd recommend to start with a full system update.
Also, please check the comments below, as this module is hardly needed anymore.

sentriz commented on 2016-06-07 00:48

is 4.6.0-1 supported? Can't seem to get it to build.

make -C /lib/modules/4.6.0-1-MANJARO/build M=/tmp/packerbuild-1000/hdjmod/hdjmod/src/hdjmod-1.28
make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.6.0-1-MANJARO/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
Makefile:52: recipe for target 'modules' failed

I don't think it's my AUR helper either - `makepkg PKGBUILD` gives the same error.

..actually, is this strange?

senan@manjaro /lib/modules $ l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K May 17 21:38 3.10.101-2-MANJARO/
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4.0K Jun 6 12:05 4.6.1-1-MANJARO/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jun 6 12:05 extramodules-4.6-MANJARO/

senan@manjaro ~ $ uname -r

they don't seem to match.

@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 ;-)

Turbo commented on 2016-05-10 13:28

Can you build a DKMS package?

Gimmeapill commented on 2016-03-24 11:09

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 ;-)

BangL commented on 2016-03-24 07:02

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.
