Download the latest driver candidate from:

ftp://ftp1.digi.com/support/beta/linux/dgnc/dgnc-1.3-16.src.rpm

You will need to use bash instead of dash by removing the symbolic link and creating a new one:

# rm /bin/sh
# ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh

Install/compile the driver:

# rpmbuild --rebuild dgnc-1.3-16.src.rpm
# alien -d --scripts /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/(arch)/dgnc-1.3-16.(arch).rpm
# dpkg -i dgnc_1.3-17.(arch).deb
# /etc/init.d/dgnc start

After loading the module, you should see /dev/ttyn1x devices for your 8 port adapter.

Please be sure you replace (arch) with your systems actual architecture (i.e. i386, x86_64, etc.).

At this point, I recommend contacting Digi Technical Support to assist with the driver installation.
