HOW TO: Install RealPort in Ubuntu


Installation Steps:

Obtain the latest driver from the Digi Technical Support site:

# 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_V.src.rpm

Change to the directory where the rpm package was built:

cd /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/(arch)

Where (arch) represents your system architecture (i.e. x86_64, amd64, etc..).

Use rpm to install the new driver package by typing:

# alien -d --scripts dgrp-1.9-34.i386.rpm
# dpkg -i dgrp_1.9-34_x86_64.deb

Replace x86_64 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.
