I'm really depressed. I have a BocaBoard 1610 Intelligent board and a 16-port
terminal concentrator and I can't get Linux to recognize it at all.
I've read the Hardware-HOWTO, the Serial-HOWTO, the mini/Boca-HOWTO all to no
avail. I've tried the editions to /usr/src/linux/drivers/char/serial.c
outlined in the Boca-HOWTO; nothing. I noticed that the addresses ordinarily
assigned to a BocaBoard appear to be for a non-intelligent one. Mine only has
a single address, not 1 for each port. It has a 286/12mhz processor on it.
It's a very nice setup. It is usually marketed for SCO and comes with SCO
drivers. I've been considering installing SCO here as a 3rd OpSys on this
machine but enjoy Linux *much* more than SCO.
I've heard rumors or legends or rumors of legends that a couple of guys have
gotten this card working under Linux. I've appreciate any suggestions, hints,
I'm on kernel 1.2.8, upgraded from 1.2.1 of the v2.1 Slackware distribution.
I'm on a 486DX4-100, 16mg 60ns RAM, approx. 2 gig HD space. I want to network
some of the people in my apartment building via serial connections. I've
already got myself & my wife's machine net'd via ethernet.
