    I have a software I like to use called gmfsk which uses the serial

computer which has a serial port that is not working.

Is the serial port enabled in the BIOS?  What does the command
dmesg | grep ttyS
give you? (upper case S).
Hi Lamar, I get nothing from dmesg | grep ttyS and I even tried /dev/ttyS :-)
