Subject:wispy_gtk on OSX: fixed!
Date:23:27:06 20/03/2006

Im not sure if this is specific to the intel macs or not, but i was finally able to get wispy_gtk to work properly. OSX appears to deal with fork() in a slightly wierd way, and the child process is not able to access the USB device.

moving the calls to init_wispy_device and usb_open, as well as the test-read to the child process lets things work normally.

Im not savvy enough to make a patch or anything like that, as i have no idea what it affects. but there doesnt seem to be any reason for the GTK display process to touch the USB stuff at all.
