PCI express Startech PEX4S553B 4 port RS232 [9710:9904]: will work or not? (Debian11 64bits)


Hello,
I bought that PCI card because I wanted to connect few older RS232 devices (printer, modem).
An error come at boot. See below.
It will work? or not? or partially? I am not use to analyse such messages. Or perhaps how to test such an RS232 card in the PC?
For the reason I have several things to debug, I would like to be sure it would work. If not, I will buy another one and not spend more time in debugging something which could obviously not work.

If the signs are this card is not good at all, any advice what hardware PCI-express I should use (2x RS232 output) is welcome (PC HP600G4 SFF).

Remarks or any recommendations are highly welcome.

Kernel from Debian11.

You did not say what distro nor hardware you have. I assume a desktop since you are adding in a card.

Looking for linux drivers for the 9710:9904 chipset gives many results so try a search there and see if you can narrow down the problem.

I did a quick search for "9710:9904 linux drivers" and this is the first link it returned.

You can save yourself and us a lot of time if you do some quick searches yourself before posting.

(I know, not easy to read the whole stuff).
Whatever, comments are welcome and intensive interaction is key of success. Thanks for the hints. I know your links. But fuzzy to understand.

Total shot in the dark: have you gone into the system BIOS and made sure you don't have IRQ conflicts with four serial ports running alongside whatever other devices the system has?

Second shot in the dark: have a look at this thread - https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...l-card-657198/

Thanks.
Last system status (still not working; no countermeasures in place) in case anybody needs this.
1 serial port is already defined and used daily (via USB). I will have a look if a limitation of numbers (should have minimum 5 for now) is in my kernel setup.
the link https://tldp.org/HOWTO/Serial-HOWTO-15.html#ss15.3 indicates

nr_uarts=16 (if serial support built into the kernel)
and

or 8250.nr_uarts=16 (if serial support is via a module).

How to increase the number of serial ports? (more than the standard 4)

I have tried 8250.nr_uarts=10 and nr_uarts=10 as command line boot parameter.
with nr_uarts=10, the serial error in dmesg was still there.

8250.nr_uarts=10 looks much better.
cat /proc/cmdline
