[CC] - Linux wireless connection issue

Hello everyone. Long time reader, first time poster here.

First of all, thank you for creating such an awesome piece of software. Made my eReading so much easier.

Second:

I've been using my Android devices in connection with CC and Calibre quite successfully as eReaders. However, now that I swapped my Win7 system for a FEdora installation, I ran into an issue with the wireless connection functionality on calibre's end.

I setup calibre fresh from scratch, did the wireless connection, and now it's kind of "stuck".

Calibre says it's there,CC says it's not. Whenever I try to end the connection via calibre's gui I get this error. I tried to "reinstall" calibre via rm -rf /opt/calibre/, but to no avail.

Some more details:

OS: Fedora Linux 19 - Schrödinger's Cat - x86_64
Calibre version: 1.2.0
CC Version:
  • GTab: 3.1.0
  • Razr I: 3.1.0


Yum info python

I have limited experience with Linux, have you installed calibre via the binary install method described on calibre's download page? If not remove calibre and install via Binary install described. Repository installs are not supported.

If you did install via the prescribed method then you'll have to wait for someone with first hand knowledge to stop by and help you out.

Tried that, repo, source, and ended up with trying the binary install again, to no avail. A reboot doesn't help either.

As far as I can tell from looking at the code, your machine does not know the ip address for its own name. My guess is that the name is not in /etc/hosts. I don't know how one specifies the host name in that distro, but whatever it is must either be known to DNS or in /etc/hosts.

Thanks, adding the machine's hostname (Which wasn't set at install... :shakes fist at Fedora: ) to /etc/hosts fixed it.

-EDIT- Okay, that was too early... now it says (roughly translated): Driver for wireless connection wasn't started: couldn't bind port 9090

Dropping the port setting,m it starts, but still isn't seen.

I've opened up a port in the firewall, but that didn't fix either...

That means that some other program, possibly another instance of calibre, has already used port 9090. Alternatively, some security setting prevents calibre from using the port.

Try netstat -p -a and look down the list to see if port 9090 is already used. Alternatively, try a different number such as 9345 or 10034. If calibre can use one of those then allow it through your firewall.

If you drop the port setting then you get a random port that almost certainly will not be opened through your firewall unless you have an application-based firewall and not an IPTables-based one.

Assigned 22000 -EDIT-, which fixed the port error, but CC still doesn't want to connect to the library. Firewall opened with upd AND tcp, I don't know if SELinux interferes, tbh.

-EDIT2- Okay, nothing changed, except a, rather unwanted, reboot. Now it works...

No one ever wants to hear those words from customer support, but often "reboot and try again" just works.

TBH, I hate the "reboot and pray" mindset windows pushes :E But yeah, sometimes... you gotta jump off that cliff.
