Re: Large number of errors with Hylafax and ZyXEL Omni modem

| You've probably already said this, but what operating system, what type

Goody. Some more questions. :) I am running Linux kernel 2.0.30, and
Hylafax is the binary distribution from ftp.sgi.com, version 4.0pl2. The
computer is an Intel-Pentium-based system with an Intel motherboard, and
the serial interfaces are built into the motherboard. Linux says that
they are 16550A. How do I find out the chipset? Do I have to open the
cabinet and look inside? That'll be a bit tough; my server runs round
the clock.

You mean no one in the Linux developers group has time to look into it?
Sad. Again, as you said, maybe only the fax user and dialup UUCP user
needs to bother about it.

Hope the sketchy info I provided helped in some way.
