BACKUP SEISMIC RECORDING SYSTEM


We will use a simple recording system (similar to system used on our GreenIce 2004 Survey) as backup.

1.  INSTALL DRIVER FOR SYMRES A/D CARD


[root@pc2 ~]# cd /usr/local/sr/parxch/driver/
[root@pc2 driver]# ./indriver PAR8CH 0x378 7
PARxCH driver installation script : Rev {08/15/07}

Driver SrParXch0 NOT installed
Driver SrParXch1 NOT installed
Driver SrParXch2 NOT installed

SUCCESS: SrParXch0 installed at address 0x378                 
                     with IRQ 7 and major number 123.       

You will need the exact driver name to access the PARxCH.  If you     
forget it, run showdriver or /sbin/lsmod | grep ^Sr to display it     
again.  The name of the installed PARxCH device driver is:            

                           SrParXch0                                

Next, you may want to                                                 
   1) source setmodel to set the default PARxCH model for applications
   2) run diag to verify the PARxCH is working correctly              
   3) see the readme.txt file for tips on how to make the driver      
      load automatically whenever the machine reboots                 
   4) if using the PARGPS, install the pargps driver using its        
      indriver utility located in the pargps/driver directory         

[root@pc2 driver]# /sbin/lsmod | grep ^Sr
SrParXch0              22124  0 
[root@pc2 driver]# ./showdriver

Driver SrParXch0 is installed with:
  XchModel   =  PAR8CH
  PortAddr   =  0x378
  PortIrq    =  7
  MajorNum   =  123

Driver SrParXch1 NOT installed
Driver SrParXch2 NOT installed
[root@pc2 driver]# 

2.  TEST SYMRES AD CARD


[root@pc2 ~]# cd /usr/local/sr/parxch/diags/
[root@pc2 diags]# ./diag std
PARxCH diag [/?]: (c) SR 2007 : Rev {01/08/07} : ParXch.lib rev 227

Beginning 4 Standard tests ... 


  Test 1: Check port and mode

          Driver      Port Mode    Result
          ------      ---------    ------
  Testing SrParXch0      EPP ... failure NO RESPONSE
  Testing SrParXch0      BPP ... SUCCESS
  Testing SrParXch0  ECP/EPP ... failure NO RESPONSE
  Testing SrParXch0  ECP/BPP ... SUCCESS
  Testing SrParXch1      EPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch1      BPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch1  ECP/EPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch1  ECP/BPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch2      EPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch2      BPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch2  ECP/EPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER
  Testing SrParXch2  ECP/BPP ... failure NO DEVICE DRIVER


  Test 2: Check for specific PARxCH A/D model (x = 1, 4, or 8)

              Model      Result
              -----      ------
  Testing for PAR8CH ... SUCCESS
  Testing for PAR4CH ... failure (Bad Read)
  Testing for PAR1CH ... failure (Bad Read)

  Xch model appears to be a PAR8CH


  Test 3: Check for default PARxCH model

  For driver SrParXch0, the registry/environment default model is PAR4CH

  WARNING: Registry/environment default model is set to PAR4CH,
           but PARxCH appears to be a PAR8CH.
           Use driver\setmodel to change the default.


  Test 4: Check yellow LED

  Initializing PARxCH with:
    DriverName = SrParXch0
    XchModel   = PAR8CH
    PortMode   = BPP

  Hit ENTER to twiddle the yellow LED, q+ENTER continues ... 
  Press ENTER to toggle, q+ENTER to quit

  Yellow LED = 0q


3.  TEST GreenIce SOFTWARE


[root@pc2 olem]# cd www/Hovercraft/
[root@pc2 Hovercraft]# ./greenacq 500 1024 1 10 0 PAR8CH 159779


4.  FEDORA 9 INSTALL NOTES


  • Drivers for the SYMRES A/D-card must either be recompiled for the Linux distro that is chosen, or we can use precompiled versions suited for a particular distribution and version (visit SYMRES).
  • "yum" is a very convenient install/update tool:

    yum groupinstall XFCE
    yum install mc
    yum install gnuplot
    yum install pyqt
    yum install gftp
