Subject: PCI5565 driver for RFM 

 Yesterday I installed a PCI-5565 driver on new C1SUS in order to test the RFM.

Since the RFM on the new CDS is not working, we had to test it by using some softwares.

I installed a driver for PCI-5565 on C1SUS and ran a test script wich is one of the packaged test scripts in the driver.

So far the RFM card on C1SUS looked correctly mounted, but I didn't check the memory location and the sending/ receiving functions.

This test will continue sometime on August because right now the RFM test is not higher priority.

 


Some notes:

Driver package

      Alex suggested to use a driver package for PIC-5565 called "RFM2g Linux 32/64-bit PCIE/PCI/PMC driver for x86 kernels R7.03" , which is available on  this web site.

And the package contains some useful test scripts which exactly we want to run for RFM test.

 

Installation and test script

      I downloaded the driver and put it on C1SUS.  

After doing usual "unzip", "tar" and "make" things, I ran one of the test script called "rfm2g_util".

Currently it lives under /home/controls/Desktop/162-RFM2G-DRV-LNX-R07_03-000/rfm2g/diags/rfm2g_util on C1SUS.

It invokes an interactive shell and firstly it asks the mount point of the RFM card.

I eventually found the card was mounted on #1 which means the card is correctly mounted.

 

Some detail procedures will be summarized on the wiki later.
