I've been trying for days to get i2c-dev working properly. I have everything I need according to instructions, but for some reason I keep getting errors at ioctl.
//Open i2c dev
if(file = open( "/dev/i2c-0", O_RDWR )<0)
enabled = -1;
printf("Unable to open file /dev/i2c-0.\n");
printf("Opened file /dev/i2c-0.\n");
enabled = 1;
printf("File is %d\n",file);
if( ioctl( file, I2C_SLAVE, 0x4b ) < 0 )
printf("Error opening file: %s\n", strerror( errno ) );
printf("Open chip %d FAILED file %d\n", 0x4b, file);
printf("Open chip %d Succeeded file %d\n",0x4b, file);
At the level of ioctl(file, i2C_SLAVE,address) I get the following error: "Error opening file: Invalid argument". So I'm successfully opening /dev/i2c-0 but I can't do a ioctl to the specific chip address. I've already verified the chip address using i2cdetect, and I've also verified that I can read/write with the other i2ctools suite.
What am I missing?
I am including the i2c-dev.h file from the the i2c-tools package. I just put it in my src directory and I #include "i2c-dev.h" as my final include in my .cpp file. All the defines and functions are configuring correctly, so I imagine it's included right. But I wonder if I need to compile the i2c-dev.h file separately or in a different way than my other code?
I am compiling with -O2 as I understand that's somehow required. Not sure if there needs to be anything else special in my make file since everything is building correctly without errors.

Recently we have tried to use the i2c-dev interface on blackfin sucessfully. One example is user/blkfin-test/twi_lcd-test/twilcd_userspace_test.c. there we use the i2c-dev interface to replace the former kernel driver. You may take it as reference, following it's proccedure to talk to the i2c device.
