HOW TO: Install RealPort in Red Hat EL or CentOS 6 and 7


Download the latest driver from the Digi Technical Support site:

Log the installation

# script

In the directory where the driver source rpm is located, issue the rpmbuild command with the --define flag to specify the Red Hat distribution version.

# rpmbuild --rebuild 40002086_(ver).src.rpm

Where ver represents the version letter for the driver.

Change to the directory where the rpm package was built

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

Use rpm to install the new driver package by typing:

# rpm -ivv dgrp-(ver).(arch).rpm
Replace ver with the version of the driver and replace arch with the architecture for your system.

Load the module:
Xterm/graphical Method:

# /usr/bin/dgrp/config/dgrp_gui

Command Line Method:

# dgrp_cfg_node init (ttyid) (ip_address) (number_of_ports)

The following example configures a 16 port PortServer with device names of ttya00 through ttya15:

# dgrp_cfg_node init a 16

Completing the installation, press:

# [Ctrl] d

If errors are seen, check the typescript file residing in the directory where the "script" command was run for driver compilation details/errors.
