serial stuff was broken a ways back.

Using 2.6.18 debian kernel I hadn't any problem: the machine used to be
a faxserver with hylafax (using a modem via the serial port).

What kind of problem do you had with 2.6.18?


Well, hmm... That's good to know you had it working. I'll check into it again. I hooked the serial device up, fired up minicom and couldn't get any characters comming back. Verified the line settings and all too. Finally tried the laptop, using the same cable, and all was fine.

To be honest, it wasn't entirely debian's kernel. It was their source package, but I rebuilt with USB support. When I get a chance, I'll look at this again.
