Linux newbie needs help with serial port in wine
Hello and thanks. am trying to set up a dos type serial port in .wine/dosdevices. I see ports files setup as symbolic links with the linux devices.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott.g root 10 2007-07-08 12:27 com1 -> /dev/ttyS0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott.g root 10 2007-06-28 22:07 com2 -> /dev/ttyS1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott.g root 10 2007-06-28 22:07 com3 -> /dev/ttyS2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 scott.g root 10 2007-06-28 22:07 com4 -> /dev/ttyS3
If I try to run a application that calls a port I get "Port Locked" which I understand is because I do not belong to the group that the devices do.
I am pretty new with linux and don't quite understand all the "groups". In the gnome GUI I set my user ID up for groups (root) and (tty) but still no go. It is better for me if I can learn these commands from a non-GUI command line entry.
If I login as root and try to run the application I do not get teh "Port Locked" error, but the software locks up with an I/O error, well one thing at a time...
Thanks for the help and tips, Scott
