I just installed Slakware 96 and everything work well except my dialup connections to my school and ISP. When I login to my school using minicom, I lose quite a few charaters in the transmission. When I try to run pine at school, you can imagine the confusion. I have set no echo, vt102 mode, and my setserial command in the rc.serial is manual with spd_vhi at the end because I have a USRobotics Sportster 28.8. Also when I run seyon, I notice the default speed is 9600, and when I change it to 38400, I can't save it. Starting up seyon again brings up the 9600bps. This has ramifications for problems with my ppp connection which I won't go into, except to say that minicom keeps reporting the message: 'cua2: x input overruns' (with x < 5). Thanks for your help.
