dgap / AccelePort 8r 920, a suitable Linus installation?

0 votes
Hello everyone,

An older computer is being prepared to host an AccelePort Xr 920. My plan is to use the latest driver from ftp://ftp1.digi.com/support/beta/linux/dgap/ and Ubuntu 10.04 operating system. The computer will probably end up headless ( no GUI ).

Compiling under Ubuntu gave some errors to be sorted out. I will be starting over with a clean install.

1) Would a different Linux distribution be better? CentOS ?

2) What are the pros and cons for using the server or workstation installation? It appears that I/O Scheduler and kernel preemption are different on Ubuntu. http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials/article.php/3715071/Ubuntu-Server--Kernel-Configuration-Considerations.htm

For those that may find this thread in the future:

Ubuntu 10.04 is where I started and had problems compiling.
CentOS5.5 was tried with similar results.
Crux 2.7 CD was in the stack but I do not recall why I moved on.

Arch Linux 2010.05 was installed. Once again, the latest version was downloaded, dgap-1.3-20. Unpacked the rpm and tgz files. Configure, make, make install, postinstall, and mpi all ran without any visible problems.
