How do I add a /dev/rrtS? I have 6 physical com port on my machine, but
Debian only see 4 of them. I use the command MAKEDEV but they do not

from /dev.static/dev to the /dev, but still, my setserial keep saying my
ttySx do not exist.
'mknod' is the command you are looking for. I believe you'd want to issue
the following commands (as root, of course) to create the additional
/dev/ttyS4 and /dev/ttyS5 device files you desire.
# mknod /dev/ttyS4 -m 660 c 4 68
# mknod /dev/ttyS5 -m 660 c 4 69
Then I'd change the group to dialout to be consistant with the other
ttyS* file configuration.
