Hi Ge,

Three things I'd suggest (based on my experience with 100 series hardware):

1) make sure your EVG is properly "seated" in the crate. Even if LEDs are
on, I've found that board can be incorrectly seated. This happened with
64x VME crates.

2) ensure the top rotary dial is set to '2' and the lower rotary dial is
set to '0'

3) change your card number from '4' to '0' if you only have one EVG

Step (3) may not be necessary to get it working.
You need to get a '0' return code from EgConfigure before you can get
any further.

The same suggestions apply to EVR (rotaries at '1' and '8', change
card to '0'). For EVR only, check that jumpers are set to '5' as
is documented on the board itself.
