LCDproc 0.10.6_10 FTDI support?



  • Hi folks

    Im not so good at packages and stuff.

    I was wondering if the latest LCDproc package for pfsense 2.4.5 has FTDI support in it?

    I cannot make it to work with HD44780 and a FT2232 chip.

    I run:
    LCDd -f -r 5 -s 0

    And get:

    Listening for queries on 127.0.0.1:13666
    screenlist_init()
    driver_load(name="hd44780", filename="/usr/local/lib/lcdproc/hd44780.so")
    hd44780: unknown ConnectionType: ftdi
    Driver [hd44780] init failed, return code -1
    Module /usr/local/lib/lcdproc/hd44780.so could not be loaded
    Could not load driver hd44780
    There is no output driver
    Critical error while initializing, abort.```
    
    I have these after I plug in the chip in the usb:
    /dev/cuaU0
    /dev/cuaU1
    /dev/ugen0.2
    
    Config file:
    [server]
    DriverPath=/usr/local/lib/lcdproc/
    Driver=hd44780
    Bind=127.0.0.1
    Port=13666

    Charmap=hd44780_default
    DelayBus=true
    Size=20x4
    DelayMult=32
    Keypad=no
    
    Any ideas?
    
    How can I see how the package is compiled?
