Hi, I've been trying for 2 days to get my serial ports running under Linux..
It seems to me that it just won't recognize that they are there. What I've
got is a Jetbook Symphony(the Winbook XP Canadian counterpart, so I've been told) 486DX2-66 laptop with a built in trackball, internal modem, and an external serial port. The external serial port is COM1, trackball is COM2 and the internal modem is COM3. I've tried everything I can think of and nothing will get my mouse and modem working. I've got X running but once I get in the mouse won't move, I've tried it under Mouseless Commander and still nothing. I went into the rc.serial file and did some editing in there to get setserial to configure the ports, I monkeyed around with the inittab file and to this point I've had no success. I'm stuck now, any help would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
