Description of problem:
The Cyclades multiport serial card driver doesn't seem to be included
in the kernel shipped with FC2. The driver appears to be included
with the kernel source, but disabled in the config file. Is there any
reason not to build the module?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install or upgrade to FC2
2.Install all updates (this step can be skipped)
3.Run "modprobe cyclades"
Actual Results: FATAL: Module cyclades not found.
Expected Results: The serial card should now be usable.
I just tried compiling the driver included in the kernel-sourcecode
package, and it appears to work okay.
There were a few warnings about use of interruptible_sleep_on(), but
other than that it seemed okay.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
