A strange problem. I dial as user and it works, then next time I don't
have permission to use /dev/ttyS1. This has happened repeatedly. I
change to o+rw and it changes itself back. I changed all tty* to o+rw and
today I have again:
They are all different, even stranger. They used to be all other rw.
The other tty's (which I did not use as user) are unchanged (rw).
I could set rc.S or something to redo the permissions on these
three files each time I boot, but what could be causing this?
The author of svgalib helped me to make the module which lets me now use
zgv and links2 non-suid. Kernel 2.4 was missing two files which were
non-essential so we commented them out.
Thanks for any ideas, and for all previous help.
