If you have an existing version of RealPort software installed, this will need to be removed first.
Prior to removing, you may want to make backup copies of the following files: /etc/inittab and /etc/ttytype files to save port configurations.
Remove the old driver using SCO's custom utility.
Installing from the CD without the CDE Desktop environment:
- Mount the CDROM using the mount command on the CDROM pamphlet.
- Change directory to the CD mount point:
# cd /mount_path/drivers/sco_unix
The ls command should show the driver image in that directory it will be labeled with a 40 million part number, followed by revision letter(s). Copy the driver image to a path on your hard drive and rename the file to: VOL.000.000 (V-OH-EL, the rest are all number zeros).
Installing the RealPort package using the VOL image
This process will work with the image from the CD or from a driver image downloaded from our web site.
- Log in as super-user (root).
- Type custom. Select Software, then select Install New and select the host name of your system.
Installing as Media Image:
Select "Media Image" from the drop down list for Media device.
Type in the pathname to the directory where the VOL images reside.
- Highlight the RealPort Software item, then select [Install].
- Answer any questions prompted, and answer "y" to kernel rebuilding questions then select [OK] when done.
- Once you reboot, if you are using the most current driver version, you will need to run drpadmin to configure your PortServer and Digi One devices.
