Description Need Real Name 2001-10-12 17:54:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98) Description of problem: I use the standard 6.2 install with updates from updates.redhat.com with no changes to the MAKEDEV and setserial rpms. I replaced the standard 6.2 kernel with a generic 2.2.19 kernel from kernel.org. Then I tried to reset ttyS4, which my modem uses, using setserial and setserial says ttyS4 does not exist. I created ttyS4 using MAKEDEV and reset it with chmod and chgrp to standard ttyS? settings. With the standard 6.2 kernel setserial resets ttyS4 every time. I need the generic kernel to run the MOSIX cluster program. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.remove kernel-source 2.delete 2.2.14-5 directory in /lib/modules, and /usr/src if anything is left 3.untar kernel 4.recompile and install kernel 5.reboot Actual Results: # cd /dev # ls ttyS4 # ttyS4 # setserial ttyS4 # ttyS4: No such device Expected Results: # setserial ttyS4 # Additional info: I have done this on 2 different computers with the same result.

/dev/lp0 has also become invisible to setserial, and also to printtool.

We don't provide the generic kernel; we provide the one the worked. Closing. (What was wrong with the Red Hat-provided kernel in the first place?)

The MOSIX cluster program is no longer issued in rpm form. The generic version of MOSIX requires a generic kernel. The rpm kernel is unacceptable to the generic MOSIX installer. I tried the generic kernel because I was under the impression that a generic kernel would work equally well. I looked at Piranha. It does not do what I want done. MOSIX does.
