Posted by geomort on May 13 2008,17:48I think I know how to do this if I can find the where to do it.
I have wine loaded though MyDsl extentions and the serial adapter is seen as ttyUSB0 in dmesg.
I tried mknod /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 c 188 0 and DSL reported that the file already exists.
From the wine documentation it looks like I need to edit win.ini to point wine to the linux device with com4=/dev/usb/ttyUSB0
I don't no where to do this. Looked in /ramdisk/dsl/.wine/dosdevices
found a win.ini but there is mostly county code information and I was looking for a [serial ports] entry to edit.
Am I on the right track?
Would #ln -s /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 com4 do the trick?

I have a USB to serial adaptor that I want to use to load code into a PIC processor device. The program that handshakes with the device and loads the code is a simple windows command line program called prog.exe. It works in DSL using the wine extention and a real serial port. The USB to serial adapter is seen as /dev/ttyUSB0. I need to assign it a com port in wine for the prog.exe program. I need to know where the file is I need to edit in wine for the com ports. Wine documentation lists /dosdevices/win.ini with the section [serial ports] to be edited. I haven't found the right file to edit in DSL. Maybe I need to add a configuration file to the extention somewhere for wine to use?
