Re: Disabled COM1: ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!



Thanks Jack, I hadn't thought of setserial.

On my Sarge system I don't have a /etc/serial.conf

But I do have a /var/lib/setserial/autoserial.conf

I just ran dpkg-reconfigure setserial and chose the 'manual' option for
editing the config file. Then I commented out the line for /dev/ttyS0.

Rebooted to check the output and the message is gone. I really should learn
the Debian way for these kind of things but for now that'll do. And the
keyboard error has most likely always been there, didn't notice.


Thanks
Jon.
