Fixed! Re: Serial ports/Modem slowness.
Well, it seems that I have found the problem as I stated recently. I
installed the hwtools package which has irqtune in it. Now while I didn't
think that hwtools would do anything 'bad' like that to my system unless I
wanted it to, I don't really think it should run irqtune by default. Can we
please discuss the pro's and con's for this utility's default behaviour?
