Installing the dgap driver in Ubuntu Linux for AccelePort C/X, EPC/X, Xr (920) and XEM adapters.
You will want to first unload the epca driver as it will not work:
# sudo rmmod epca
We recommend copying the epca.ko or epca.o module file to something else:
sudo mv /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/epca.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/epca.ko.blah
The latest source rpm driver candidate supporting the latest kernels is available for download from:
Make a symbolic link the bash shell in place of dash (there are problems using dash):
sudo rm /bin/sh
sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
sudo rpmbuild --rebuild dgap-1.3-1#.src.rpm
sudo alien -d --scripts /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/(arch)/dgap-1.3-1#.(arch).rpm
sudo dpkg -i dgap_1.3-1#_(arch).deb
If errors are seen, please send the file called typescript residing in the directory where the script command was issued to: Support Wizards.
