Stanislav, I'm using the 2.4.30 kernel, so I used the older driver
here http://soekris.hejl.de/, but when I get around to moving to
2.6.x, I'll let you know the status of your driver. Anyway, the
driver seems to work ok. At least, I can control the error light with
But I'm having trouble figuring out the deal with the GPIO pins. The
documentation for the 4501 doesn't match the 4526 (which is the board
I have). The 4501 has a 14 pin header at JP3, but the 4526 only has
an 8 pin connector. When I touch a volt meter to the two pins
farthest from the LEDs, the board resets. Obviously not good.
Does someone know the pin outs for the 4526's GPIO?
