Note: The driver has only been tested on 2.6.x and 2.4.x kernels, 3.x and 4.x kernels do not have driver support.
Capture the driver installation/compilation details into a file called typescript: # script If you are not on the “stock default” kernel or do not have a /usr/src/kernel directory confirm/create a symbolic link from your kernel source to /usr/src/linux by typing:
# ln -s /usr/src/linux-[kernel_version] /usr/src/linux
# cd /(path_where_src.rpm_image_is)
The following example shows the installation syntax for Red Hat Fedora Core 1:# rpmbuild --rebuild --define DISTRO=FEDORA dgap-1.3-22.src.rpmChange to directory /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/(arch). Where (arch) represents your system architecture (i.e. i386, x86_64, etc…) and use rpm to install the new driver package by typing:# cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/(arch)
# rpm -ivv dgap-1.3-22.(arch).rpm Configure the adapters and load the module by typing:# mpi Set up your machine to have the drivers load automatically at boot time by typing:# chkconfig --add dgapCompleting the installation, press:# [Ctrl] dA 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.dgapIf the installation failed, a file called "typescript" will have been created in the directory you were in when you typed the "script" command.
