It doesn't appear to have puc/sio compiled in - I did find a reference to this problem and the solution suggested was that puc(4) and sio(4) had to be either both compiled in or both loaded as modules - since either involves a new custom kernel, which I'm trying to avoid as I prefer to run as few different kernels as possible, this solution is not ideal. I did see some suggestion that puc had been modified to register itself with uart(4) if it failed to do so with sio(4) - this may have been on 7-current, and I don't know whether it has been MFC'd to 6.2. kldstat -v -n uart gives me: Id Refs Address Size Name 4 1 0xc2568000 b000 uart.ko Contains modules: Id Name 377 acpi/uart 378 isa/uart 379 pccard/uart 380 cardbus/uart 381 pci/uart 382 puc/uart and man uart tells me: The primary support for devices that con- tain multiple serial interfaces or that contain other functionality besides one or more serial interfaces is provided by the puc(4) device driver. However, the serial interfaces of those devices that are managed by the puc(4) driver are controlled by the uart driver. If this is the case, how can I get the ports on my card recognised by the uart(4) driver? Or am I going about this wrongly?
