Hi All,

I'm new to this forum,I've an error while accessing the minicom.I've performed the following actions
1.# minicom -s
2.had set the serial device /dev/tty and baud rate to 115200 8N1
3.ran the command #minicom
4.The following error got displayed "Device /dev/tty lock failed: Operation not permitted"
5.Upon doing dmesg the following errors are displayed(Ran minicom 4 times so i got 4 different pids for lockdev)
lockdev[2828]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00453153 esp bf8d4ebc error 4
lockdev[2830]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00453153 esp bfdea3cc error 4
lockdev[2834]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00453153 esp bfb7314c error 4
lockdev[2841]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00453153 esp bf82660c error 4
lockdev[2910]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00453153 esp bf8e06bc error 4

upon doing # ps the following is displayed
2987 pts/2 00:00:00 bash
3616 pts/2 00:00:00 ps

this means that the serial port is not locked by any other process.
sometime back the minicom was working fine.I'm unable to figure out the issue.
I appreciate early replies.
Thanks in advance.
