I'm trying to use an USB to serial adapter based on the Prolific PL2303 chip, and it didn't work on my Centos 4 (64 bits) with kernel 2.6.9. In dmesg I get only:
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
with lsusb I get:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
With ubuntu 6.10 using lsusb the result is the same but using dmesg I get
[17189385.916000] usb 7-3.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
[17189386.016000] usb 7-3.4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[17189386.016000] pl2303 7-3.4:1.0: pl2303 converter detected
[17189386.016000] usb 7-3.4: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
Is there a driver for pl2303 missing in Centos? Is it available for the 64 bit OS?
Thanks in advance

Ubuntu uses much newer kernel than CentOS 4.4, myabe you can search for manufacturer driver for 2.6.9.x kernel or try CentOS 5.
Im using a FTDI usb to serial adapter, it has drivers included. Easy to compile and works fine.
