Com Port not working...

Post by dabest_1977 » 2018/01/25 03:13:17


I installed a CentOS v6.9 community enterprise in one Lenovo M700 tiny PC. But the com port is not working. Is there a work around to troubleshoot/resolve this issue?

Well, how does it not work? Do you get some sort of an error when you try to use it, perhaps?

More information would certainly be helpful - how are you trying to use the port, how is it failing? However, a common problem is if the user is not a member of the dialout group.

Code: Select all

usermod -a -G dialout <username>
