OpenBSD and IRQ Conflicts
Posted 23 March 2009 - 12:45 AM
I'm fairly new to the BSD kernel, so I'm not sure how this could be resolved. This doesn't seem to be a very common problem, with only four similar results through Google, so I'm guessing it has to do with an inadequate BIOS. That being said, is there a way to force the kernel to load the serial driver before the NIC/PCMCIA driver, causing it to mark IRQ 4 as already in use?
I'd disable the serial port and abandon it as a lost cause, but since this is an old, heavily modified laptop, I need the serial port to connect a serial mouse: the PS/2 keyboard/mouse port is occupied by an external PS/2 keyboard, and there are no USB connectors.
