Description Hadmut Danisch 2004-09-10 16:00:06 UTC
Distribution: Debian
Hardware Environment: Dell Inspiron 3800, Nokia 6210 and 6310i
Software Environment:
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?
Comment 2 Adrian Bunk 2006-04-15 02:29:22 UTC
I'm assuming this issue is already fixed in recent 2.6 kernels.

Please reopen this bug if it's still present in
