Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112680
kernel 2.4.20-27.8 rocketport driver can't see card
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:00:51 EDT
Description of problem:
With kernel 2.4.20-27.8, the rocketport driver (for Comtrol
serial port cards) does not work. Same card has worked with
every RHL 8.0 kernel since March, 2003.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade kernel to 2.4.20-27.8 on a system with a working
Rocketport card in it.
2.Attempt 'modprobe rocket' or let mgetty trigger an
automatic module load.
Module load fails, because driver complains there are no
rocketport cards installed.
Module should load and allow interaction with the card.
I have done several earlier kernel upgrades with _no_
difficulties with the card. File /etc/rocketport.conf
says nothing is needed for PCI cards. I'll attach
output of 'lspci -v', /proc/interrupts, and extracts
from /var/log/messages and such.
