My tests from last evening were made with a 4.19 kernel.

Code: Select all

Linux raspberrypi 4.19.118-v7+ #1311 SMP Mon Apr 27 14:21:24 BST 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux
I am running a rpi-update now, it is downloading a 5.4 kernel. I will post the result.

I think the timeout errors are more frequent with the 5.4 kernel (not 100% sure).

I get less errors when I slightly decrease the emulated controller frequency. This can be done using the command line:

Code: Select all

gimx -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -c LogitechG25_G29.xml -r 10
With -r 10 the controller runs at 100Hz instead of 200Hz, sending twice less commands to the adapter, leaving more bandwidth for the force feedback commands.

I think it stuck in lower frequency when I used the command.
I did video where you can listen steering wheel's movements and see the game without responce.

Thats exactly what mine did with the Pi4. It works flawlessly with the Pi2.

I just bought a RPi4 to check this. I will have it in a few days.

I received my RPi4B but lacked time to test it. I will try to test it soon.

Sorry for the slowness. I received my "sandwich" heat-sink to keep the RPi4 cooled. I will do the test as soon as I can.
