second com port not working
Not sure if this is a hardware or software problem... I'm trying to use the second com port on my epia m10000. If I run 'setserial /dev/ttyS1' it detects it and shows the UART type. Then I ran 'cat /dev/hda > /dev/ttyS1' and plugged my homemade serial cable to my windows box to hopefully see some garbage scrolling past. I don't see anything. I'm pretty sure my cable is wired correctly, and the com parameters are correct (if I set up /dev/ttyS0 I can log in through the cable). Is there anything special I have to do to enable this port?
BTW I'm using LinuxBios.. not sure if that makes a difference.
