System hang up by entering bootlevel 3

Post#1 by jjflash » 04 Jan 2017, 10:06

In the first, a (late) happy new year to everyone and a lot of thanks to the makers of Porteus.

Please excuse my bad english, I am a native speaking german (and I've learned english in the 80'th at school).

I have tried the new version 3.22 (32 bit) in kiosk-mode and (by downloading modules from server) in desktop mode. I've tested the system on 5 computers, 3 old notebooks, a 5 year old notebook and a Desktop-PC.

On Desktop-PC I,m having problems:

By entering bootlevel 3 most of time the computer hangs up. This computer works fine with Win7 (64 Bit), Win10 (64 Bit), Porteus 3.1 (32 bit), Xubuntu (32 bit).
If I try Porteus 64-Bit, everything works well (but for compatibility with the other computer I use Porteus 32 Bit).

Cause I'm developing electronics with embedded microcontrollers I know about a bug using a chip CH340 / CH341. The original driver for these USB to RS232 chip have an error with parity check.

Perhaps you can solve the this by implenting the patch for CH340/CH341 to the kernel ?

Nice greetings and thanks a lot for Porteus,

Ralph

In fact that the CH340G is a chinese chip, often used in embedded electronics and cheap hardware, the patch is stored on a chinese website.

http://www.wch.cn/download/CH341SER_LINUX_ZIP.html

The file to download is:

CH341SER_LINUX.ZIP

By searching the web, there a sites who offers a patch, but a lot of them don't work correctly. This one works great with porteus (and xubuntu, and slackware), both in 32 or 64 bit.

Greetings,
