DIGTEST does not work for digitizer on IRIX

Last Published: April 25, 2020


System fails to respond when running Arc command DIGTEST for IRIX.


Permissions and protocol used for serial port are incorrect.

Solution or Workaround

  1. To ensure the permissions to the port do not change when rebooting your system, do the following as root:

    # chmod 666 /hw/ttys/ttyd1
    # vi /etc/ioperms

    Add this line:

    /hw/ttys/ttyd1 0666 root sys

  2. For DIGTEST, change 8bit to 7bit:

    digtest 9100 /dev/ttyd1:9600:7bit:even
