Thanks for noticing and fixing the typo! Sorry, I didn't notice myself.

Looking into a kernel driver sounds cool!

@bbx0 thanks for your changes, I have committed them. In the mean time, I'm investigating writing a kernel driver so we don't have to rely on libftdi at all:

Just made proposal to build the 0.3.2 release, please find it below.

  • Changed the upstream URL to as they provide the actual releases.
  • Use git+https to download the sources. The Makefile.Linux uses git to set the version parameters internally, this way they are consistent.
  • Unfortunately upstream does not offer any signature for 0.3.2. As a fallback I set the github workflow signature.
  • The udev rule configures the dialout group but in Arch it should be uucp for tty devices. (The group dialout does not exists.)

Not sure why the libftdi-compat dependency is used. For me it seems to build and work okay also with libftdi.

Cool, that is definitely the most correct way to do it. Thanks for going the extra mile! :)

I have split this package to provide the driver, library and tools separately.

@kvasthval Thanks for the patch + suggestion. I will make an update soon.

Thanks for maintaining! It would be nice to have the tools available as well. In Debian the package is split up into infnoise and infnoise-tools, but the tools are quite simple and small (~120 KiB) and could IMO easily be integrated into this package, e.g.:
