Re: serial troubles
i suspected the modem too so tried a us robotics (usually have a gdc
connected)...both behave the same. seems to be related to warnings at
bootup re: PCI ... there is a serial USB controller on IRQ 10 that is one
of the PCI devices that isn't recognized (identified by number)... i tried
disabling it and manually configuring /etc/rc.boot/0setserial but still
get the same behavior. i need info on this PCI bizness. i read the
PCI-HowTo but found nothing there of any use
the only debian cd i have is 2.0.27 (kernel) think i'll try hamm
if i can find a cd...maybe PCI problems have been eliminated
