A while back I raised a post regarding serial ports (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=64465&p=370886&hilit=memory+map#p370886 because I thought the version of Wine I was using was failing to talk to the serial port on LDME. Things have moved on and I am now convinced I was looking in the wrong area!
My Window$ program called Memory Map works fine with WINE on Mint 8, Mint 9 and Ubuntu 10.04 but it won't talk to my serial GPS under LMDE. I have tried this with version 1.1, 1.2.2 and 1.3 of WINE and the results are the same: everything works on Mint and all but the serial GPS works on LMDE. It reports can't open com1:.
QUESTION: Does anyone have any ideas what might be missing in LMDE compared with Mint?? I know the kernel has gone from 2.6.32 to 2.6.35 but don't know if that should make a difference.
Any thoughts appreciated.
