     1= Rebuilding the PCAN module on Caesar = 
     2The PCAN module is required to access the rotation laser range finder on the lower sensor level. Rebuilding of the kernel module is required after installing a new kernel. It's an older known-working version of the Open Source driver from http://www.peak-system.com/fileadmin/media/linux/index.htm. If the build fails contact timn, it might be time for an upgrade of the driver we use due to a no-longer compatible kernel.

     4== Instructions == 
     5Boot the brutus machine into the new kernel. Then login as root and do: 
     6{{{ 
     7cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS 
     8rpmbuild -bb peak-linux-driver.spec 
     9rpm -Uvh ../RPMS/x86_64/peak-linux-driver-YOUR-VERSION.rpm 
     10}}} 
     11At the end of the rpmbuild command output it will list the RPMs it created. The x86_64 RPM is the one you need to install. After the module is built, load it with 
     12{{{ 
     13modprobe pcan 
     14}}} 
     15Afterwards you can run Fawkes with the EDL laser configuration enabled (the default on brutus, just load the laser plugin).
