Indeed. There is a Linux-GPIB project and we are using their stuff at work.
Personally I think that the interface is *old* and I much more prefer the
VXI-11 RPC based interface. Well thought trough interface and it didn't take me
ages to get up and running altought I was cheating alot. I am expanding on my
VXI-11 hack so that eventually I might have a fully compliant server and client
with the server sitting ontop of the Linux-GPIB stuff.
