AccelePort RAS and AccelePort Xp Source RPM Installation in RedHat

Installation instructions for AccelePort RAS and AccelePort Xp Source RPM Driver in Red Hat.

Confirm your system has the necessary package dependencies to install the driver:

Dependency listing

Download the latest source rpm driver from our web site.

# cd /path_where_driver_image_is_located

Capture the driver compilation/installation:

# script

For Red Hat distributions you will need to use the --define option to specify the distribution flag, the following example shows the installation syntax for Red Hat AS 2.1:

# rpm --rebuild --define DISTRO=REDHAT_AS_21 40002059_X.src.rpm

Where "X" represents the actual driver revision letter.

Other valid Red Hat DISTRO flags:

Red Hat 7.2 - REDHAT_72
Red Hat 7.3 - REDHAT_73
Red Hat 8 - REDHAT_8
Red Hat 9 - REDHAT_9
Red Hat Fedora - FEDORA
Red Hat AS 2.1 - REDHAT_AS_21
Red Hat AS 3 - REDHAT_AS_3
Red Hat ES 3 -  REDHAT_ES_3
Red Hat WS - REDHAT_WS_3

Change to the directory where the rpm image was built and use rpm to install the new driver package.

For x86 platforms:

# cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

For 64 bit platforms:

# cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64

# rpm -ivv dgdm-(VER).(ARCH).rpm

Where "VER" represents the actual driver version numbers and "ARCH" represents the system architecture (i.e.: i386, x86_64).

Load the module by typing:

# /etc/init.d/dgdm start 
Set up your machine to have the drivers load automatically at boot time by typing:

# chkconfig --add dgdm

Completing the installation, press:

# exit

If any errors occur during this installation, the typescript file can be used for further analysis.

**Important note:  These are currently obsolete products.  The last kernel version supported/tested with the driver is 2.6.25.
