Re: silo overflows -- what can I do about this?

Make sure the Serial port is enabled in BIOS?

I've seen integrated-chipset-provided serial ports be disabled in BIOS and still be probed and in used by the OS. The ghost ports would then work depending on how the OS serviced them.

I've also seen multiple ports configured on the same resources.

What is actually being run over this serial port? Just a console
session, or something else? What baud rate are you running at ?

It's just a serial console cable to a cisco device. It's a PIX in this case. I'm using the cisco supplied blue roll over cable. Pretty much normal. It seems to work fine when using my notebook.

So it can either be a) the hardware on the DragonFly box, or b) something in DragonFlyBSD. The notebook runs FreeBSD. I'm almost curious enough to yank the hardrive out of the OpenBSD box (another box where it works fine too) and put in the DragonFlyBSD hardrive to rule out the hardware.

I can do that if you want, that way we don't chase things that are hardware related. You know what I mean?
