Sounds like a bug in ucom. It's also missing the init and lock devices. You might be able to get away with simply removing the UCOM_CALLOUT_MASK from the make_dev() call on line 186 of ucom.c. That looks like it will convert ucomX to a callin device. A correct fix would probably be to copy all the code in dev/sio/sio.c related to the "devs" array to ucom.c, and name the devices "ttyuX" and "cuauX" instead of "ucomX". -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
