Re: IR & Serial Port Problems

Hash: SHA1

I have the same problem on a 600E-2645-4AU.

The solution was to build pcmcia-cs with the -pnp option, so that lspnp/setpnp worked. Then, I can use setpnp to change these without having to boot into Losedoze or DOS.

I've also just pulled out the pnp-related files from pcmcia-cs, and built a pnpbios.o module that just does the pnp stuff only, so setpnp can work. Haven't made a Debian package ofthis thing but if you want it let me know and I can post it somewhere.
