Installing Digi NEO and Classicboard PCI Adapters in Debian Linux (dgnc Source RPM)

Solution:

Installing the dgnc driver in Debian Linux version 3 (Source RPM):

First verify you have the matching kernel-source installed on your system:

# ls -l /usr/src

A directory called kernel-source followed by the version number which must match your kernel (uname -r) will exist if the kernel-source is installed. If not, please install the matching kernel source from your media or preferred download source.

Create a symbolic link:

# ln -s /usr/src/kernel-source(version) /usr/src/linux

Download the latest source rpm driver from the Digi website http://www.digi.com/support.

Change directory to where the src.rpm file is located:

# script
# rpmbuild --rebuild 40002369_x.src.rpm

Where "x" represents the actual driver revision letter.

# cd /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386
# alien -d (driver_name).i386.rpm
# dpkg -I (driver_name).deb
# /etc/init.d/dgnc start start
# exit

To load the module upon system reboot:

# update-rc.d dgnc start defaults 70

A successful installation will create ttyn#x devices in the /dev directory (/dev/ttyn1a through ttyn1h for an 8 port adapter). If the installation generated errors, please e-mail the typescript file created in the directory where you began the installation to: Support Wizards for analysis.
