Subject: [CLUG] "busy" oddity with pcmcia modem
I have a curiosity with a USR Sportster 28800 card modem
under RHL 6.2. cardmgr recognises the insertion, cardctl
gets the ident correct, but flags it as "busy". There is
no process running which could be using it, as this is a
virgin serial installation.
Anyone any clue as to what could bring it busy?
minicom therefore naturally won't access it, giving no
error message but not responding to AT commands. Kppp
in its "query modem" tab also claims it is busy. There
is no LCK..modem except when minicom runs (OK). modem
is softlinked to ttyS1. There's a mouse on ttyS0 but
that shouldn't be affecting it, as that is ln'd to mouse.
