Re: pcmcia modem
I'm running also into problems with my pcmcia modem after upgrading
to potato/frozen. Inserting the card results in two beeps as the
modules get loaded, but the device is not set up. So, setserial
reports that the device is managed by pcmcia, but /dev/modem is not
accessible ("no such device"; yes the link is valid).
Solution: rmmod serial *before* inserting the card. This means you
have to compile the serial driver as module.
No clue why this works, looks like a bug to me. Maybe I should add
something like "pre-install serial_cs: rmmod serial" to the
P.S. This is on a TP385XD with one serial port enabled, not sure
whether this matters.
