[ltp] 560X and serial port for modem problems
Mon, 15 Oct 2001 10:51:11 -0500
Okay, now I am more awake and I will explain some of what I have done in
an attempt to solve my problem.
"setserial /dev/ttyS0" returns:
ttyS0, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 4
In an attempt to get this to work properly I enter:
tpctl --rs1=0x03f8 --rs=irq4
tpctl: System error message is: No such file or directory
tpctl: Can't open device file /dev/thinkpad/thinkpad with flags O_RDWR
I followed the install directions, and then made up the file
"/etc/modules.conf as written in README. Then I ran "depmod -a" as
instructed. I have double checked everything and believe I have followed
all instructions correctly, but then again "belief" and $1.25 will buy
you a cup of coffee:-)
What is wrong?
Should I restart the system (sorry, some old M$ thinking)?
Maybe I should use tpctl 2.5?
I hope this helps clarify the problem somewhat. If not, feel free to ask
for further information.
