Okay, I know the USB works (at least under windows), so I don't think that's the problem. I have 6 physical USB ports on the computer, 4 in the back physically attached to the motherboard, and 2 remote ones in the front, attached by wire. I only use the back ones, and that's where my Zire is plugged in.
I was looking at the only howto I could find
on the topic, but it didn't help much in the USB department. (I ran `modprobe visor` and `modprobe usbserial`, I have both compiled into the kernel. Duh).
I ran the gpilot config program, under about everything I could think of. (/dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/ttyUSB1, /dev/ttyS0 through /dev/ttyS6, /dev/usb/ez0 through /dev/usb/ez6, /dev/ttyUB0, and /dev/ttyUB1).
also, /dev/pilot is a symlink, pointing to ttyS0.
Other info, 2.4.22 Kernel with an athelon 1.3 processor, and a fairly generic motherboard. (PCChips is the maker, SV266A is the model, afaik)
Did I leave out an obvious /dev/location for the thing? Or is it being caused by something that will make me feel less dumb than that would? Thanks -- Dave
