Description David Shea 2010-05-14 15:58:57 UTC
Description of problem:

minicom allows the use of a unix socket file by specifying the serial device as "unix#<path to socket file>".  This does not currently work due to the changes applied to open_term in main.c by the minicom-2.4-rh.patch.  The added code to perform a ttylock on the modem file does not check for the socket prefix, the attempt to lock fails and minicom exits.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
minicom-2.4-1.fc14.i686

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure minicom to use a unix socket as the Serial Device setting
2. Attempt to connect
  
Actual results:
Exits with status 1, prints to stderr:
"Device unix#/home/dshea/modem access failed: No such file or directory."


Expected results:
Connect to the socket file
