IRDA: Framing or parity error!
Last modified: 2006-04-15 02:29:22 UTC
Hardware Environment: Dell Inspiron 3800, Nokia 6210 and 6310i
Problem Description:Framing or parity error (ircomm)
Steps to reproduce:
Install irda-utils and put the Nokia phone near to the IRDA port.
Open minicom on /dev/ircomm0
It works pretty well with a 2.4.24 kernel, but not with
2.6.7. irdadump shows the phone, but it is impossible to
use an ircomm connection: Just no answer to any AT command.
The kernel reports repeatedly "Framing or parity error!"
Is this issue still present in kernel 2.6.14?
I'm assuming this issue is already fixed in recent 2.6 kernels.
Please reopen this bug if it's still present in 188.8.131.52.
