I am trying to use 8 serial ports and puppy only allows up to 5 ttyS0-4. Is there a way to add more of these.

This is still for the sub competition for our school we will have a full website posted soon and i will give you guys a link to see what puppy has accomplished.

Thanks in advance for help.

EDIT***

ok there is a command makedevs that does a wonderful job
makedevs NAME TYPE MAJOR MINOR FIRST LAST

i understand what all of it is but the major and minor anyone that can give info on that?

I'll give you a hint...


ls -l /dev/ttyS*



you can prolly work it out from there

Very Happy


Mind tho unless you have a hd install or remastering image.gz these will be lost on every reboot...to save have them created every boot add the required commands to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
