New Vger Linux-Activists Lists for Linux Ports

New Vger Linux-Activists Lists for Linux Ports

Post by David S. Mill » Thu, 12 Jan 1995 04:55:46


        I have created a few new lists for the topic of discussing the
various ports of linux to different architectures. They are:

linux-mips:  Discussion about the port(s) of linux to machines
             with Mips based chips.

linux-ppc:   Talk about the PowerPC port of Linux.

linux-alpha: The port of Linux to the Rip-Roarin' Dec ALPHA.

linux-hppa:  Talk about porting Linux to the HP Precision Architecture
             line of computers.

Again, the lists are all majordomo like the rest of the new
linux-activists lists. So a simple way to join is:

just replace linux-alpha with the list you want to join. If you would
like a simple help file explaining how to use majordomo just send

Happy Linuxing!

Problem: 8 Port Serial Card with one IRQ for all Port does not work any longer
=======  with Linux 0.99.13 (worked with 0.99.10)


I have a strange Problem with my MOXA 8 Port Serial Card - it used to work
fine with 99.10 - all 8 ports were detected automatically without any changes
to the Kernel.

With PL13 the card is not detected at all. I tried to track down the Problem
and compiled the IRQ (9) into the driver. Now the 16450 Chips are found with
correct Adresses.

Since I am able to send out characters on those 8 tty's - but not to *receive*
any, I assume that the problem is with the Linux Interrupt Handler.

Could somebody give me a hint or explain to me what has changed to IRQ
handling since PL10 ?

Thanks in Advance,
