Description Daniel Qarras 2007-08-29 11:51:34 EDT
This is a new report for the case originally reported at Bug 84565, before the
time of hal, hal-info, etc. Not sure is the correct component
anaconda/irda-utils/hal but anyway:

After installing Fedora 7 to my Acer Aspire 1692 laptop /etc/sysconfig/irda has:


But my system has /dev/ttyS1 and if I want to use GPRS over IrDA then I must
have DEVICE=irda0. Can this detection be automatic? Or some (device specific)
logic be added to hal?

I'd rather keep it as is because using one of the FIR drivers instead of the
irtty driver is documented in the irattach man page as not stable and mature.
I'd like to stay on the safer side and use /dev/ttyS? as the default and let the
user decide he/she needs either speed or stability.
