Re: Request help on activating STI console on 715/80 with Kernel 2.4.9-32
Hi List, I still have a few questions maybe somebody knows...
[ Regarding "If this is the last message you see..." ]
Maybe I need to compile a kernel then. Is the debian hppa kernel source
package available? I seem to remember reading that the kernel had to
be patched to get it to compile, or has that been fixed?
Should or does hppa use a kernel framebuffer? Can I use both graphics cards?
What does the "sti" in "sti_console" supposedly abbreviate? :-)
BTW, I have a HIL keyboard attached, which is an unfamiliar feeling kb
for me, but it seems to work nevertheless. It has a spot where you can
piggyback a mouse on it, which I have a HIL mouse here too.

This is not an answer to your question, but you should never
have your /dev/tty* devices world read/write.
Use mode 660 instead if 600 doesn't work.
Yeah, I juess I better set them back since it didn't help.
