Hello I have a Digiboard 16em that I am trying to install on Red Hat Linux
7.0 - the host board is EISA.
I downloaded the .rpm for this board from
http://support.digi.com/support/legacy/digi/drivers/4001450K.rpm which they
say is the last driver to support EISA. The package name of this driver is
'epca-220.127.116.11-1'. It also says that it is for upto kernel 2.2.14 and Red
Hat 6.1, but I think that it is because it was what was current when it was
created. I have the 2.2.16 kernel on Red Hat 7.0, so it *should* work
Well, after creating a 'src' group and then running 'rpm -i 4001450K.rpm'
it puts all of the source files where they need to go and starts the
configuration script. Everything seems fine there except that it asks for
an I/O address to use (1005,2005,3005,4005,6005,7005). But there is nothing
about setting an I/O address for this board when the board was added to the
system via the system EISA configuration.
So, I tried using all values, but I get an error when it tries to load to
the board. And when I try I/O addresses 3005 and 7005, the configuration
script hangs when it tries to load to the board.
Has anyone been able to get the DigiBoard 16em EISA board to work with Red
Hat? I appreciate any help or suggestions at all.
Thanks in advance,
