PCIe Serial Ports

Postby mechanic » Wed Nov 23, 2016 3:44 pm

I have a 4 port 16550 compatable PCIe x1 serial port card and need to know how to get it working under AmigaOS 4.1.
Ranger sees the ports on my X1000 but I am unable to configure them so they will work.

Thank You

P.S. I need all the protocol pins to work, not just Rx, Tx.

Unfortunately the serial device driver does not scan the PCI bus looking for devices to support.
It reads the machine type and supports only the device(s) built into the machine's hardware.

I did raise an enhancement request on this subject some years ago, so it hasn't been forgotten, but neither I nor anyone else has done anything about it. Sorry.
cheers
