Hi Folks -

I had a problem earlier this week with kernel 2.0.27 in that when the
kernel was booting it would not recognize one of my serial ports
(/dev/ttyS2) when I tried to change its interrupt number. After hours
trying to figure it out I went back to kernel 2.0.26. When I configure
the kernel I like to select as many options as possible to be loadable
modules handled by kerneld and this is how I have my serial drivers. Is
it possible this may have caused the error? Has something new been
introduced with kernel 2.0.27 and higher that makes it behave differently
at boot time? Could you please respond to my email address as I am not on
this list.
