I eventually want to connect a 14400 modem to my SparcStation 1+ running
SparcLinux. I'm having trouble configuring the serial ports. First of
all, does this have to be done? I have noticed that I can do some
configuration from the prom.
During boot, setserial runs and gives an error.
I have tried the following command, but to no avail:
setserial -b /dev/ttyS0 irq 12 port 0xffd02004 skip_test autoconfig \
which returns: Cannot set serial info: Invalid argmuent
the kernel reports on bootup:
Sparc Zilog8530 serial driver version 1.38
tty00 at 0xffd02004 (irq = 12) is a Zilog8530
tty01 at 0xffd02000 (irq = 12) is a Zilog8530
tty02 at 0xffd00004 (irq = 12) is a Zilog8530
tty03 at 0xffd00000 (irq = 12) is a Zilog8530
Does the kernel perform the necessary configuration for Sparcs?
