Yes. On attaching this converter, the PL-2303 gets recognised and the appropriate module gets loaded. Not that it makes it work properly though :-( > I tested such a device about two years ago, and I had some problems > with it both on Mac OS X and Linux. I didn't test it on Windows. The results so far are that the only one that works under OS X is the Keyspan. Under Windows it is the Prolific and under GNU/Linux... none so far :-( [*] > > Did you test the adapters on Linux yet? [*] Yes - with the exception that I still didn't get the Keyspan initialised properly so I can't be conclusive but ATM the results are as follows: OS X GNU/Linux w2k Keyspan O ? X Prolific X X O Cypress ? X ? where "?" means either lack of driver or driver initialisation problems, "O" means OK and "X" means doesn't work properly. -- Speaking just for me, I don't think I have Linux blinders on my eyes. I can see other platforms, but I *choose* to ignore them on the theory that if I ignore them hard enough they will go away. - Eric S. Raymond Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
