pilot-xfer fails to bind to serial port with kernel-2.2.14
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
The pilot-xfer program fails with the following message:
[mjs@yankee ~]: pilot-xfer --backup .
Unable to bind to port '/dev/pilot'.
(Please see 'man pilot-xfer' or 'pilot-xfer --help' for information
on setting the port).
This occurs when running with a kernel compiled from 2.2.14-1.5.0 sources.
The problem does *not* occur when running with the stock 6.1
kernel-2.2.12-20. /dev/pilot is a symbolic link to /dev/ttyS2, which
is in turn
crw------- 1 mjs tty 4, 66 Mar 14 16:42 /dev/ttyS2
The problem also occurs when /dev/pilot is a device in its own right
with the same configuration. The userid running pilot-xfer is mjs.
Note that both the kernel and the pilot-link-0.9.3-2 RPM were rebuilt
on a stock (updated) RH6.1 system. In particular, I have stock RH6.1
libraries, including glibc-2.1.2-11, and egcs-1.1.2-24. The problem
also occurs with the stock RH6.1 pilot-link RPM, which is why I tried
OK It's not a bug. Works fine under the real RH6.2.
