HOW TO: Install the Digi NEO or Classsicboard Driver (dgnc) in Red Hat WS/EL 6

Prepare for driver installation:

First, remove the in-kernel jsm module to avoid hardware conflicts:

The jsm module, should be renamed to prevent it from loading when rebooted:

#cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/serial/jsm

# mv jsm.ko bak.jsm

Start the driver installation:

# script

# cd /(path_where_the_driver_src.rpm_image_is)

#  rpmbuild --rebuild 40002369_G.src.rpm

Change to directory /root/rpmbuild/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 dgnc-1.1-1.(arch).rpm 

Load the module by typing:

# /etc/init.d/dgnc start 

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

# chkconfig --add dgnc

Completing the installation, press:

# [Ctrl] d

A successful installation will create devices labeled /dev/ttyn#x: /dev/ttyn1a through /dev/ttyn1h for an 8 port adapter.

The adapter and port status can be confirmed with DPA:

# dpa.dgnc

The file named typescript located in the directory where you began this installation will contain the driver build details for debugging/analysis.
