Program: gcc (we want to use C and possibly Fortran to call libraries)
Kernel: Linux 1.1.8 Slackware (from yod.honors.indiana.edu on 6/30/94
Hardware: EmPAC 386DX/25 8Mb memory, 120Mb IDE HD Linux partition.
In particular, we have a card with an 8255 digital IO chip on it.
Description: The IU Astronomy department is deciding if Linux could
be the answer to it's problems for controlling some hardware at our
robotic telescope facility (and future facilties being planned now).
Currently, we have a PC with an 8255 digital IO chip we use to read
from a CCD camera (and write some instruction bits). In the
future, we'll also like to be able to have drivers for the parallel
port, and controlling some ADC/DAC converter (we haven't bought one
yet, but if there's a driver for one out there, we'll go with that
device. Also, we would consider going to another digital IO board if
there were a Linux-supported one with drivers already written.
Thank you for any help you might be able to offer!
