I recently embarked on the challenge of getting scantool compiled under Ubuntu (10.10 – netbook edition) so that I could try out the OBD-II diagnostics on my car.

Since there were a few changes needed to make it work (and since it also relies on a compiled version of dzcomm) I thought it might be useful to others if I shared my updated/compiling version.

Follow the link below to download the source for both dzcomm and scantool 1.13, modified to compile under Ubuntu.

Please let me know if you find it useful or think anything needs updating.
