    RE: How can check/test serial port working in my target board and How can configure node in kernel for s
    [quote="JayminD"] I want to know that how and where can I find serial driver file (i.e. for /ttyS*) in my kernel image in Linux.... ??? and How can I check/test the serial driver on my ARM dev. board ?? (mean how can I test that driver and serial port is working properly ?? ) can you just suggest me or tell me that how can I check my serial port on my ARM target board that is working correctly and how can I configure serial post ??? I mean that , as we configure fb0 for LVDS LCD and configure it and send any image on it that's same how can I check my serial port and check it that whether its working correctly or not ?? How can I activate it's node in my board ?? Please reply me ASAP I need help urgent, b'coz it's very imp for me so.. Thanks a lot. Best Regards Jaymin D [/quote] Interesting question you asked. I don't know how to activate a serial port other then enabling the driver if one is included in the kernel or manually install the driver. The best way to test if a device is working is to confirm the kernel detects it. The most widely used method is lspci. In a terminal: #sudo lspci This lists all the devices on your system, with name, location, extensions and drivers. Read this article to get a better understanding of kernel modules. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/kernel_modules Bestly, just connect something to the serial port and see if it gets read.

    RE: Lexmark Pro901
    What is linux 06 OS? I looked at a site the Lexmark suggested I go to download drivers for a Lexmark pro901 printer. I added filters for type of Linux OS and version. You are using Ubuntu 12.04. This is the link to all drivers that are designed to work lexmark pro901 on ubuntu 12.04. Make sure you install them all and on the right architect. Use 32bit drivers for a 32bit system. http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_PINNACLE_PRO901#2

    RE: How to copy files from VM to host machine ?
    [quote="begueradj"]Howdy How can copy a file from my virtual machine to my host machine ? Thank you in advance for any answer. Begueradj[/quote] You will have to install the guest add-ons to allow for copying files between the VM and the host if you are using Virtualbox. Or, you can just send yourself an email :-). What VM hypervisor are you using.

    If you are still having sound issues, install pulse audio. Could you manually add the VST?
