web built driver OK for 5.1?

web built driver OK for 5.1?

I used the GUI tool to generate a sample PCI tru64 driver for


The download of the files, the build and such seem to work fine.
Has anyone used this tool build and run a functional simple driver?

When I run the 'sysconfig -v -c'  I get a warning that the
is  missing from /etc/sysconfigtab.   Yet when I do a sysconfig -m c1553,
I get  :

Subsystem_Description = Condor PCI 1553
Device_Major_Req = Same
Device_Char_Major = ANY
Device_Char_Files = c1553
Device_Char_Minor = 0
Module_Config_Name = c1553
C1553_Developer_Debug = 1
Num_Installed = 1
PCI_Option = PCI_SE_Rev - 0x210, Vendor_Id - 0x13C6, Device_Id - 0x1553, Rev
- 0
, Base - 0, Sub - 0, Pif - 0 Sub_Vid - 0, Sub_Did - 0, Vid_Mo_Flag - 1,
lag - 1, Rev_Mo_Flag - 0, Base_Mo_Flag - 0, Sub_Mo_Flag - 0, Pif_Mo_Flag - 0,
b_Vid_Mo_Flag - 0, Sub_Did_Mo_Flag - 0, Driver_Name - c1553, Type - C,
ig - N

And the 'missing line is there'

following is the system console output during sysconfig:
ooking for method /var/subsys/c1553.mth

executing method for preconfiguration:

/var/subsys/c1553.mth preconfigure c1553 1

Any suggestions as to what's happening?

Should this sample driver built with a 5.0 tool work
under 5.1?  Are there changes between 5.0 and 5.1
dynamic drivers?

help will be appreciated



1. Unix PGP ok for RH 5.1??

     I'm a fan of DOS-PGP, and would like to have it on my Linux HDD.
Just wondering if the Unix version - 2.6ui - will work under RedHat?
     I have the pgp26ui-src_tar.gz file downloaded and untarred, but
the compile instructions make no sense to me.  Even a simple phrase
like, "Copy your makefile.config to your Makefile..." isn't
particularly obvious.  Is there someone out there who has done it, or
maybe knows of a simpler compilation/installation guide somewhere?
