Description taupin 1999-12-23 14:58:46 UTC
At boot borcess, the serial driver 4.27 (but also the driver of RH 5.2 does not recognise port COM2 while it recognises port COM1. However both ports work, since my modem on COM2 (ttyS1) works OK with Windows 96. But boot (dmesg) only reports: Serial driver version 4.27 with MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ enabled ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A but nothing concerning ttyS1. Anither check is that modem lights are OK when put on COM1, and bad when put on COM2.

Presuming your "Windows 96" is actually "Windows 98", are you sure it is really COM2 or has Win98 remapped the ports for you? Have a look in Win98's device manager and check the settings it's using for COM2 - if they're other than IO=0x2f8, IRQ=3 then it's done the remapping trick it seems to be overly fond of doing.
