HOW TO: Install RealPort in Red Hat EL or CentOS 6 and 7
Download the latest driver from the Digi Technical Support site:
http://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=2247&type=driversLog the installation
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:
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 192.168.1.3 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.
