I've bought and installed a dual serial Quatech PCMCIA card (DSP-100) in my laptop. The laptop has got one serial port in /dev/ttyS0, and a secondary one for the infrared which I've diabled in BIOS. Linux (RH6.1) works fine and locates /dev/ttyS0, and cardmgr identifies the card with the 2 additional ports. However, when it configures the ports, these are not assigned to the next available devices, /dev/ttyS1 and /dev/ttyS2, which according to what I've read in the PCMCIA HOWTO documentation, I believe should happen.
It is a small inconvenience that would normally not bother me. So long as I know which dev's to address the ports to, no probs. However, I've got an application that runs on various Linux machines, and I'd like not to have to recompile it every time I run it in the laptop.
Q: is there a way to force cardmsg to assign the ports to specific devices? (I would only need one from the dual serial PCMCIA card, the other is not in use)
Thanks in advance
