Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I am working on RHEL4 with kernel version 2.6.9-42.EL.I have a device used for temperature sensing.
I have a cable (USB to serial convertor FT232R) ,having one end attache to usb port and other end is like serial connector(9-pin). we attached this serial connector to another serial connector(9-pin)which is connected to a device having microcontroller 8052, temperature sensor LM35 and manymore.It is given that PL2303 driver supports this cable.
For kernel-2.4 the driver (pl2303)supporting USB to serial adaptor is present at linux site not for kernel-2.6.But in kernel-2.6, pl2303 driver is builtin that support this cable.
When USB is plugged in dmesg shows nothing
I add the lines in /etc/modprobe.conf
alias usb:v6547p0232* usbserial
options usbserial vendor=0x6547 product=0x0232
then apply command
and i have to apply these command each time i boot my PC.
dmesg shows the result
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
usbserial_generic 1-2:1.0: Generic converter detected
usb 1-2: Generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial_generic
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core v2.0
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for PL-2303
usbcore: registered new driver pl2303
drivers/usb/serial/pl2303.c: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver v0.11
ls /dev doesnot show /dev/ttyUSB0 for first time but after inserting usb cable 2nd time it automatically shows ttyUSB0 in /dev.
At some forums it is given that ttyUSB0 cab be created using
mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1 and so on.
Is it necessary to do it????
I am using minicom-2.3 for serial communication.after serial port parameter setting baudrate 9600,parity No,stop bit 1, minicom goes hang....doesnot show nothing...
I use the same cable in windows and it works fine although has some problem in XP but does work fine in 2000.
You gave me suggestions am i doing right?
waiting for ur reply.
