After starting devfsd on boot, I am able to use tpctl.
However tpctl --rsx replies as follows:
resource state: ioaddr irq# able? mode/power
thinkpadpm: Power state of device 0x400 could not be got; 0x9999 was returned as the state -- APM error 0x1
serial port 1: 0x0 IRQ0 disable (error)
serial port 2: 0x0 IRQ0 disable
And there is no device /dev/tts/1. Only /dev/tts/0.
I tried running PS2.EXE off the cdrom at
http://www.baiti.net/tp770x/ps2.html. PS2 SERA ENABLE reports
a memory error and suggests I initialize from EZ Setup at boot.
This has no effect. PS2 SE ON apparently turns the serial
port on, but it doesn't seem to matter. Any ideas?
On a different issue, why does lspci work sometimes, but
other times generates the following message?
pcilib: Cannot open /proc/bus/pci/05/00.0
lspci: Unable to read 64 bytes of configuration space.
lspci -s 03 -v reports the Lucent WinModem, but I am
running 2.4.20, thus the need to make the serial port work.
