Even though slakware (others? slakware is all I have used) make a /dev/modem
entry, it is not recommended--when an application is listening on /dev/modem
(are you running, say pppd?) no other process will be able to use /dev/cuaN.
The recommended solution is to find all references to /dev/modem in your
startup rc files and change it to /dev/ttyS1, then try your stty command.
the ttySn and cuan devices have the same major and minor device numbers, but

Hello all, I have a small problem I am not sure how to fix without
rebooting. I have a StorageTek 9710 jukebox with four drives. Apparently
one of the drives (or the kernel) thinks it has a tape in it.
lebud01 / 57 <> mt status /dev/rmt/3n
/dev/rmt/0n: Device busy
Physical inspection of the drive proves that the device is empty but
that the drive access light is blinking. Looking at the 'mt' manpage
there doesn't appear to be a way to 'HUP' (as it were) a device.
So, apart from bouncing the box to reset the tape drive, is there a
command line option?
