RE: Changing priority?

Can you describe the protocol in more detail?

What is tha data rate?
Is there a clock from ETRAX to trigger data transfer etc?

In the driver you could disable interrupts to make sure that
nothing else runs but that is a really bad idea if the 
protcol is slow.

Subject: Changing priority?

I'm writing a device driver which utilizes lpt1 in manual mode on the
etrax100LX-board. The data that the driver is supposed to read consists of
12 bits. The problem is that the data is sent in a serial form. I need to
ensure that the processor wont run off doing something while I'm reading
the data. Can I somehow change the priority of the driver to make sure
nothing will interfere with the read?
