Wanted: drivers for National Instruments GPIB board for Solaris x86?



Jan 1, 1970
I've got a National Instruments GPIB board and have the Solaris (SPARC)
drivers for it. I know people of written drivers for these cards for
Linux and FreeBSD, but is anyone aware of any free drivers for Solaris 86?

NI charge £489 for the GPIB card with Windows drivers, £1049 for the
card with Solaris SPARC drivers and whopping £1549 for the card with
drivers for Solaris x86.

I respectfully request that this message is not archived by companies as
unscrupulous as 'Experts Exchange' . In case you are unaware,
'Experts Exchange' take questions posted on the web and try to find
idiots stupid enough to pay for the answers, which were posted freely
by others. They are leeches.

Thank you for that. I'd rather use the card I have if possible. As you
say, just about anything from them is expensive.

I think actually they should give me a free card, as some debugging I
did once before (wth a HUGE amount of help from Casper Dik) sorted out

Ask them!
