Hercules DJ Console Mk2 with DidJiX 1.0

The use of this console requires the presence of specific kernel module that is not included in DidJix... This module is now available here.
Size: 49Ko - Sha1: fc47258b30e0ddcabf107eb7ff9a259213f6a0ab

  • Download and save the DidJiX.1.0.hdjmod.pkg.tar.xz package on the second partition of your DidJiX removable media, where there's all your musics.

  • Start DidJiX, open a terminal over Mixxx with Win t keys, install the downloaded package with pacman, load the specific kernel module,

      cd /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/
      pacman -U DidJiX.1.0.hdjmod.pkg.tar.xz
      modprobe hdj-mod

  • Close the terminal with Ctrl d keys and try your Hercules DJ console...

  • If all is good, change the DidJix behavior to automate all. Open a terminal over Mixxx and run these commands to change your .xinitrc script,

      echo pacman -U /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/DidJiX.1.0.hdjmod.pkg.tar.xz \
      >> /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/.xinitrc
      echo modprobe hdj-mod >> /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/.xinitrc

Next release of DidJix will try to include this module... Thanks to Gimmeapill for his work on hdjmod.

Note that the package can be downloaded directly from DidJiX...

  cd /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/

    1. Hi,

      Like I said, this module is no longer needed in DidJiX 1.1, this is why this old link is broken.

      It is quite difficult to answer you for your mp3 E2: I do'nt have one. Perhaps another user can help you...

      Have you tried "win-t" or "ctrl-alt-f2" to regain control over Mixxx?

  3. Hi,
    the system is stopped !

    1. Hi,

      Hard to bring you a reply from your screenshot...

      This problem occur on all computers you use?
      In this case, there is probably a problem with your DidJiX device : forge a new one and try again...

      This problem occur only and systematically on a particular computer?
      In this case, first, check the computer memory by typing "memory" at DidJiX boot prompt (
