DigiBoard,BocaBoard: work w linux?

Post by Mark Mets » Wed, 29 Jun 1994 10:24:51



One of the machines I am to convert to linux has a DigiBoard 8-port board.
I seem to have some reason for thinking it wont work with linux but cannot
find any specific "it will not work" listing. But it has a 80186 on it and
the docs seem to be saying that most 'smart' cards arent going to work
because the makers dont let us disclose the programming info. The Serial-
HOWTO says intelligent boards arent likely to become supported. But it also
says any board that has contiguously-addressed chips of certain types is OK.
Perhaps the DigiBoard falls into such a category andf could be used that
way without invoking its 'inteligence' ?

My dealer is suggesting a BocaBoard 8-port card; claims its 'the' board for
Unix, that if Linux DOESNT support it, that would be a real problem for
Linux inasmucxh as MANY people use them. Boca 8-port card is listed in the
Serial-HOWTO; are there multiple versions or would the one offered pretty
much have to coincide with the one listed as working? (ie there arent ump*
versions some of which dont work are there?)

Blessed Be. -MarkM-
