How to access COM3 and COM4 in Linux?

I'd like to use the COM4 port for some Kondo serial servos.

But in Linux all I see is /dev/ttyS0 and /dev/ttyS1, presumably COM1 and COM2.

COM3 and COM4 are enabled in the BIOS, at 3E8/IRQ10 and 2E8/IRQ11.

This is with the 2.6.34.1-vortex86-sg kernel.

Any suggestions on how to access COM4?

Edit: Using the Roboard 100

Hi, please download "RB-100/RB-110 Linux Installation Guide" from the official site, in which there are tutorials for COM3 & COM4 setting in Linux.

Forgot about the new documentation! :lol:

Thanks for your help as usual.

Hopefully soon I'll have some info to report about driving Kondo serial servos from COM4.

It would be nice if Roboard had a library for that in RoBoIO :wink:

But chrisvo has his nice ics4/rcb4 library, and there's the KCB SDK from Kondo which contains ics code so it looks like the community is going to take care of it :wink:
