Run Dev.ser for DIGI ClassicBoard

I am having problems getting a DIGI ClassicBoard (PCI) running. DIGI support
reports that it SHOULD(?!?) run with Dev32.ser but indicated that QNX support
was the place to get an answer.

OK, here is the configuration, show_pci shows no conflicts and shows this for
the board:
Vendor ID = 114fh
Device ID = 29h
PCI index = 0h
Class Code = 8078000h Communication (Other 128) ProgIF=0
Revision ID = 2h
Bus number = 0
Device number = 18
Function num = 0
Status Reg = 280h
Command Reg = 3h
Header type = 0h Single-function
BIST = 0h Build-in-self-test not supported
Latency Timer = 0h
Cache Line Size= 8h un-cacheable
Base Address = MEM@e4800000h,32bit length 128 IO@b400h length 128 bytes
IO@b000h length 256 bytes MEM@e4000000h,32bit length 256
Max Lat = 0ns
Min Gnt = 0ns
PCI Int Pin = 1
PCI Int Pin = INT A
Interrupt line = 10

Launching the device with:
Dev.ser -Ndigi -b38400 b400,10 & (to get first port working only) causes a
kernel fault
Dev.ser -Ndigi -b38400 b000,10 & gives a listing /dev/digi1 and “stty -a
</dev/digi1” shows “normal” conditions for a serial port. When I qtalk to the
port and check it with a loop back tester, I get no response suggesting that I
am not communicating with the device

I have reviewed the support pages and can find no reference to installing any
DIGI ClassicBoards. We have been successfully launching Connectech boards
including the DFlex4/8 cards using Dev.ser for 10 years+. We are moving to the
DIGI card because we need world wide access and PCI interface. Please let me
know what I have missed.
