Digi AccelePort Xem, C/X, EPC/X, and Xr (dgap) Driver Installation in Red Hat WS/EL 6

First ensure the following package dependencies are installed on your system (typically installed using yum.  For example:  yum install [package_name]):

make, rpm-build, bash, gcc, glibc-devel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers, ncurses-devel, perl, and tcsh.

The kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages must match your running kernel exactly (i.e. uname -r).

Download the latest driver package:

Capture and begin the driver compilation/installation:

# script 

# rpmbuild --rebuild dgap-1.3-22src.rpm


Change to directory /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/(arch).  

# cd /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/(arch)

Where (arch) represents your system architecture (for example:  i386, x86_64, etc...).  

Use rpm to install the new driver package by typing:

# rpm -ivv dgap-1.3-22.(arch).rpm

Configure the adapters and load the module by typing:

# mpi

Follow the prompts for configuring your specific adapter.

Set up your machine to have the drivers load automatically at boot time by typing:

# chkconfig --add dgap

Completing the installation, press:

# [Ctrl] d

A successful installation will create devices labeled /dev/ttyx## (where x represents the ID selected during the mpi configuration). The adapter and port status can be confirmed with DPA:

# dpa.dgap

If the installation failed, a file called "typescript" will have been created in the directory you were in when you typed the "script" command. Please contact Technical Support by creating a case online and sending in the file.
