PS4 - RPi - G27

Post by Dom_Christo » Fri May 18, 2018 1:45 am

Anyone else seen this kind of behavior?
Long start time before Gimx starts?
Using LED and /home/pi/blink.py to notify when GIMX starts.
The led comes on for 3-4 seconds and turns off again, happens about 5/6 times.
Sometimes unplugging / plugin the G27 or DS4 will make it work.
Sometimes it just starts fine.

Think my problem might be start time?
If i just wait it seems to be working after 4-5minutes.
Does this sound normal?
Could it be my SD Card?

Can you connect your Rpi to a display to see what was going on?

I can see the GIMX service start / stop about 3-4 times.

Use this command to check status.

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl status gimx.service
Then you can recheck gimx.service script again, use

Code: Select all

nano /etc/systemd/system/gimx.service
You can also stop gimx service and use gimx with graphical interface. So we can make sure what reason is.
