Second serial port on 748 workstation does not work.
- Adding Second Serial Port to 748 Workstation
The 748 workstation has 2 serial ports on the back. However, when one attempts to use the second port, it does not show up using ioscan. Furthermore, sam is unable to locate it.
Patches were placed in the software to utilize the second port. In order for the port to show, it is necessary to rebuild the kernal with the correct drivers.
- run sam kernal configuration -> drivers scroll down to vme2 - select vme2 Actions -> Add Actions -> Rebuild Kernal system will now reboot ioscan - should show the serial port as 702 cd /dev rm ptr_rs232_b /etc/mknod /dev/ptr_rs232_b c 1 0x702004 chown lp:bin ptr_rs232_b restart the station
- How do I configure a second serial port?
