I have asked this before, but has anyone successfully used serial
port /dev/ttyS0 under wine? I am trying to run a windows program for
controlling an amateur radio - a 'tentec pegasus'.
My linux is a debian derivative ... sidux ... and I have installed wine from
the sid repositories. The program runs ... and displays a radio dial which
looks correct. However, because I cannot access the port, I cannot talk to
the radio ... so the dials don't work. The program gives a message that it
cannot establish communications with the radio.
1. Is the com1 poprt setup under wine ... actually happening?
2. Is a wine user given permission to open the com1 port. (When I use
virtualbox and winXP) I have to be sure that my name is included in the
cboxusers group ... and maybe this wine difficulty is a permission thing?
3 Are there some help files or logs which will tell me where the process is
going wrong? Using virtualbox and winXP is a bit of overkill for just 1
