Driver for FIFOed UART

Hi, 

 

I am looking for the driver for FIFOed UART for NIOS-2. 

I have downloaded the nios2-linux-20100621.tar.gz file and it compiles and loads on my fpga (mmu enabled). However I don't see any output on console. Looks like it has the FIFOed UART. 

 

Where can I get the driver for the FIFOed UART? 

 

Thanks

AFAIK, you do't need a special driver for the FIFOed UART. The noprmal UART driver automatically takes advantage of the Fifos.
