 Re: Fedora core 3 FC3 only supporting 4 serial ports Oversite or BUG - request
 CONFIG_SERIAL_NR_UARTS=24 NOT 4.
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

What then is the process to request that a change be made in the default configuration
to have CONFIG_SERIAL_NR_UARTS=24 and not the present default of 4.

THanks,

-----------------------

I would suggest a configuration issue, not a bug.  The kernel config
for 2.6.9 - 681 shows:

CONFIG_SERIAL_8250=y
...
CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS=4
CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_EXTENDED=y
...
CONFIG_SERIAL-8250_MULTIPORT=y

The default configuration between Red Hat 9 and Fedora Core 3 at the
kernel level has changed.  Your configuration is a bit different than
what is normally used in other words.
