Default Computone Card (PCI) drivers

Hi to everyone...

Very new to this Forum.

I need the Linux (CENTOS) drivers for a very old PCI Computone Card
(8 ports). Can anyone help with that?

Thanks.

Felino

Hi felino,

Welcome to MG. Did you have the card working in another OS? CENTOS is a Fedora core distro as far as I can remember. Google results show a fix that is outdated, and this was at one time supported in the 2.6 Kernels. Can you offer more details regarding the card? Can you see it with the command-

ls-pci

Hello BoredOutOfMyMind.
Thank you for answering.
Card (Computone EX-II) was working ok in an SCO-Open Server v5.5
But we moved to a linux box (CENTOS v5.6) and we sould like to keep using it
to handle several modems. I am not an expert in this kind of stuff, so help will be
very welcomed.

Cheers.
Felino.

Whew! tough call and unless you know how to compile a kernel from 5.5 to 5.6, this will be an rough ride. I did find this link.

http://www.wittsend.com/computone.html

and if you have the code in your 5.6 CENTOS box.... this line in kernel seems to point to you.

/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-67.0.7.EL.perfctr.2.6.31-i686/include/config/computone.h
