I am new to linux! so please forgive my ignorance.
I have edited the wine.conf file [ports] section to allow direct
hardware access( I know this is ill advised but with the application I
need to run I have no choice). I added 0x2f8-0x3ff for com1 and com2 as
read = 0x779,0x379,0x280-0x2a0, 0x2f8-0x3ff
write = 0x779,0x379,0x280-0x2a0, 0x2f8-0x3ff
This does not seem to work even when logged on as root. Did I do this
right? Is there something else to do such as modify a system/OS file to
allow these addresses to be accessed directly?
