SUSE 9.1 and serial port problem
Posted on 2004-11-24
I have installed SuSE 9.1 on a HP Netserver, and applied patches using on-line update.
I try to connect to a modem, but get no reply from modem. Have tried several types of serial devices, and my comm-package ("Modem is not ready") as well as minicom (no response).
Server is a rack, no keyboard or monitor when booting. I have tried exchanging the hardware, same result - must be OS-related.
<6>Serial: 8250/16550 driver $Revision: 1.90 $ 48 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
<4>ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
Boot logging started on /dev/tty1(/dev/console) at Wed Nov 24 15:25:31 2004

/dev/ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
Configured serial ports
done<notice>exit status of (setserial boot.proc) is (0 0)
Using cat /proc/interrupts I get no lines with "serial", if I start the comm-program, I get:
10 XT-PIC serial
There seems to be no other leg-file entries related to this.
I have had the system running using same modem and software with an old SuSE 8, so I may be missing some banal change in SuSE 9.x
