i'm writing my first tty driver for linux 2.4.18, and i am having trouble making the driver i'm
creating become associated with the hardware that i'm writing it for (an 8 port serial board).
the dev/ttya00-dev/ttya07 files are being created, and i can access them and read and write from them, but the data isn't actually getting sent to the board, even though its processed through my driver. so i guess my question is, when writing a tty driver what exactly sets the driver to be associated with a certain piece of hardware.
thanks for the help.
by the way, the code is on a non-networked computer, so the code is not easily transferable, but i can get it posted if necessary.
