LCDproc to work with Checkpoint LCD
I've tried as much as possible but I can't get anywhere.
I have a checkpoint Smart 1-5
The LCD is 2x20 Character, and looks like a watchguard / similar. I have tried following this thread:
however after successfully installing it it still doesn't show up on the screen.
A few things:
I am running 2.3.5 on x86 pfsense full build as this is a celeron 1.5ghz cpu
How do I find out which /dev/cuau? number it is.
reverse of LCD says:
Where can I start to find the originating cause of the issue or get it working please?
Would appreciate the help :)
2.3.5 is EOL, so if your device only supports 32bit you need to switch hardware anyway.

As @Rico said, 32-bit hardware is outdated, and the software branch of 2.3.5 is considered to be insecure.
The port placement and LCD look like a Lanner box in which case I would expect the SDEC driver to work. That's connected via the parallel port.
However almost all Checkpoints other stuff is Portwell/Caswell. That's not the EZIO LCD though.
But yeah it will only run the now obsolete 2.3.5.
