Xircom RealPort modem(/eth) not working
I've recently installed Debian on a Toshiba Tecra 8000. I'm trying to
get a Xircom RealPort Ethernet + Modem card working.
I've compiled my own kernel (2.0.36) along with my own pcmcia modules
package. I notice that "hot swap" doesn't seem to work. That is,
when I push the card in or take the card out, the kernel doesn't seem
to recognise that anything has changed.
But fortunately running "/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart" seems to cause
the card to be recognised. I then have tried to use the modem. When
I use pon, plog waits for expect (OK) but never gets it! I thought it
was because maybe /dev/ttyS0 was the wrong serial port, but no, even
when I change it to /dev/ttyS1 it doesn't work.
Does anyone know what's wrong?
Here's some info:
Now here's something interesting. I just went to look at my
/proc/interrupts file and it has changed since I last looked at it!
Previously it was showing IRQ4 as being used for serial, now it has
gone and we have:
0: 14170060 timer
1: 7121 keyboard
2: 0 cascade
5: 9 xirc2ps_cs
7: 310 plip1
13: 1 math error
14: 21856 + ide0
15: 0 + ide1
Curious. Perhaps I should be using /dev/ttyS3????
