Diald & modem forget irq #
I have a Hayes Accura 33.6 faxmodem; it's pnp, I have a pnp bios,
everything is configured successfully by the bios.
The modem, which for some reason is placed by the bios on
/dev/cua3 (com 4), is auto-pnp-configured to use irq 10. Since the Linux
default for this device file seems to be irq 3, I use setserial in
/etc/rc.boot to change the irq line for it to 10.
I have diald installed to auto-connect this modem ... generally it
works fine. But sometimes I get messages saying "failed to determine
terminal attributes" in /var/log/messages ... it _always_ turns out that
somehow the irq for /dev/cua3 has reverted to 3. I am able (as root) to
setserial it back to 10, but it's aggravating, because the point of
installing diald was to <not> have to do that all the time ...
Is there a way for me to hardwire this irq number to this port
somehow? Is there a better way to handle it?
