USB serial converter problem


Hello,
I have a newly built kernel which was generated from the source files in RedHat 7.3. This is kernel version 2.4.18-3. The new kernel runs fine except it does not see my Edgeport USB 8 converter. The original kernel does. The original kernel was built from the RedHat CDs and then run under up2date which seems to have created 2.4.18-10, and after that the Edgeport worked fine. I then compiled my own kernel and the Edgeport does not work. I've tried turning on all options under USB when I run make xconfig, but this did not help. I ran up2date on the new kernel and I still cannot get the Edgeport to work under the newly built kernel. Also, after running up2date the dash number did not change on the new kernel. Can anyone help with this problem?

Thanks,

Bill

What module does the edgeport use?

Also try 'lsmod | grep usb' and post results here.

Thanks for your reply. The edgeport uses usbserial. Unfortunately, I'm temporarily off on a tangent. When I get back, I'll post the results of the lsmod on the machine in question.

Regards,

Bill

i beleive usbserial is just the generic handler. you should still need to load the specifics for your usb/serial converter. For instance I need to load usbserial and then load pl2303 to use my Prolific(-ish) converter.
