NOTE: This driver is obsolete. Digi provides a 2.6 driver (dgdm) at
http://www.digi.com for PCI cards. They no longer maintain this driver,
and have no 2.6 driver for ISA cards.
This driver requires a number of user-space tools. They can be acquired from
http://www.digi.com, but only works with 2.4 kernels.
The Digi Intl. epca driver.
----------------------------
The Digi Intl. epca driver for Linux supports the following boards:
Digi PC/Xem, PC/Xr, PC/Xe, PC/Xi, PC/Xeve
Digi EISA/Xem, PCI/Xem, PCI/Xr
Limitations:
------------
Currently the driver only autoprobes for supported PCI boards.
The Linux MAKEDEV command does not support generating the Digiboard
Devices. Users executing digiConfig to setup EISA and PC series cards
will have their device nodes automatically constructed (cud?? for ~CLOCAL,
and ttyD?? for CLOCAL). Users wishing to boot their board from the LILO
prompt, or those users booting PCI cards may use buildDIGI to construct
the necessary nodes.
Notes:
------
This driver may be configured via LILO. For users who have already configured
their driver using digiConfig, configuring from LILO will override previous
settings. Multiple boards may be configured by issuing multiple LILO command
lines. For examples see the bottom of this document.
Device names start at 0 and continue up. Beware of this as previous Digi
drivers started device names with 1.
PCI boards are auto-detected and configured by the driver. PCI boards will
be allocated device numbers (internally) beginning with the lowest PCI slot
first. In other words a PCI card in slot 3 will always have higher device
nodes than a PCI card in slot 1.
LILO config examples:
---------------------
Using LILO's APPEND command, a string of comma separated identifiers or
integers can be used to configure supported boards. The six values in order
are:
Enable/Disable this card or Override,
Type of card: PC/Xe (AccelePort) (0), PC/Xeve (1), PC/Xem or PC/Xr (2),
EISA/Xem (3), PC/64Xe (4), PC/Xi (5),
Enable/Disable alternate pin arrangement,
Number of ports on this card,
I/O Port where card is configured (in HEX if using string identifiers),
Base of memory window (in HEX if using string identifiers),
NOTE : PCI boards are auto-detected and configured. Do not attempt to
configure PCI boards with the LILO append command. If you wish to override
previous configuration data (As set by digiConfig), but you do not wish to
configure any specific card (Example if there are PCI cards in the system)
the following override command will accomplish this:
-> append="digi=2"
Samples:
append="digiepca=E,PC/Xe,D,16,200,D0000"
or
append="digi=1,0,0,16,512,851968"
Supporting Tools:
-----------------
Supporting tools include digiDload, digiConfig, buildPCI, and ditty. See

Misc. notes for RISCom/8 serial driver, in no particular order :)
1) This driver can support up to 4 boards at time.
Use string "riscom8=0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX" at LILO prompt, for
setting I/O base addresses for boards. If you compile driver
as module use modprobe options "iobase=0xXXX iobase1=0xXXX iobase2=..."
2) The driver partially supports famous 'setserial' program, you can use almost
any of its options, excluding port & irq settings.
3) There are some misc. defines at the beginning of riscom8.c, please read the
comments and try to change some of them in case of problems.
4) I consider the current state of the driver as BETA.
5) SDL Communications WWW page is http://www.sdlcomm.com.
6) You can use the MAKEDEV program to create RISCom/8 /dev/ttyL* entries.
7) Minor numbers for first board are 0-7, for second 8-15, etc.
