gm4lin's goal is to enable people to use the GM-45 or the GM-10 radiation detectors manufactured by Black Cat Systems under Linux (the GM-10 should work fine, but the calibration needs to be checked for that one). That detector connects to the computer using the serial interface. More informations about the detector can be found on http://www.blackcatsystems.com or on LND Inc. (LND Inc. is the maker of the chamber ref 7317 used in the GM-45 detector).
What it consist of
Currently, this is a C program which is able to read data from virtually any number of these detectors (sensitivity can be selected individually, per detector) and output it to the screen, to a file or to a MySQL database. It can record the number or particules going through the detector's chamber per minutes or simulate the analog needle of a Bicron RSO-50E detector (each particule produces a little signal, with an exponential decay).
