Just got 2 stylistic 1200s from the 3rd group buy (thanks reldrig!). One is in very good condition except for a cracked case between the pen holder and the power port. The other has some minor scratches in the case. Neither has port covers. They are such cool machines!
I took the hard drive out of one and placed it in my vaio laptop. Installed redhat 7.1, made sure it booted on the vaio and swapped the drive back to the fujitsu. Lilo worked fine but it froze at:
Uncompressing kernel... Ok booting...
I couldn't figure out the problem, maybe something to do with the kernel compile.
So I installed redhat 6.2 and it worked fine. It was very cool to see the boot messages scrolling by on the fujitsu. The problem however came when I tried to get the pen working.
I downloaded pentest and xf86fpit (for X 3.3.x) from linuxslate.org. First I did:
chmod go+rw /dev/ttyS3
setserial /dev/ttyS3 autoconfigure
setserial /dev/ttyS3 base_baud 115200 irq 15
and then pentest, but it doesn't see the stylus. Hmmm, so I tried setserial with port 0xfce8, but again nothing.
fpits x module returns
tcgetattr IO error (or somthing similar)
I know that the stylus works, because I can get into pensetup bios and can operate the speaker/display buttons with it.
Any help is greatly appreciated! I think maybe the irq or port is wrong for setserial because statserial won't work on ttyS3 under any combination of serial configurations.
Thanks in advance
