[ltp] TP600 and serial port
Tue, 3 Oct 2000 06:21:04 -0700 (PDT)
The problem is probably that the serial port is
switched off. tpctl 0.8.9 is capable of controlling
the power of the serial port through the APM
interface, but enabling this capability requires
a kernel patch (supplied in the tpctl 0.8.9 tarball).
The alternative is to use the DOS program PS2.EXE .
See the section "Serial and infrared ports" at
for more info.

tried using tpctl but have so far been unsuccessful. Has anyone successfully
used tpctl to enable their serial port? Any pointers truly appreciated.
