This shows the currently running kernel version.
rpm -aq | grep kernel-source
The versions displayed after the kernel-source package must match the "uname -r" version exactly. If not, please install the matching kernel source from your installation media or from a download source.
rpm -ivh kernel-source[version]
Create a symbolic link from your kernel source to /usr/src/linux by typing:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-[version] /usr/src/linux

Red Hat AS 2.1 - REDHAT_AS_21
Red Hat AS 3 - REDHAT_AS_3, REDHAT_ES_3
Red Hat WS - REDHAT_WS_3
- Change to directory /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 and use rpm to install the new driver package by typing:
rpm -ivv epca-1.57-1.i386.rpm
- Configure the adapter, number of concentrators and ports by running the digiConf program. The program will prompt for information such as number of boards, board type, etc. Type:
Answer the various prompts accordingly.
