My motherboard is supplied with only one comport.
I added a second one as a PCI card.
This works fine in windoze.
I am a Radio Amateur (ham) and in communication programs I use com1
for "CAT" of the tranceiver, and I use com2 (the added one) for PTT.
I have installed Mandrake 10.1 Official on a second HD, and installed on it a Ham comm's Program.
The comm program (Hfterm) is only seeing /dev/ttyS0 . ls /dev/ttyS* shows six com ports which of course is ridiculous.
How can I get the OS to recognize the second comm port , and how can I mount it so that it can funtion?
