8-port AST Serial Cards?

8-port AST Serial Cards?

Post by Peter De » Mon, 23 Oct 1995 04:00:00


        could someone please indicate to me if an 8-port serial sharing a
single IRQ (and of course 8 different I/O addresses), would linux be able to
handle it? This card is not intelligent. Simular to that of a 4-port AST
card except know has 8-ports!
        I have looked at the kernel, it doesn't make mention of being able to handle
8-port AST, just 4-port, but I'm being to suspect that it could!

What I need know is, will linux's kernel (serial stack) handle this 8-port
beasty AST card????

Thanks in advance,
