Infrared-port device driversEdit

    • depends on IRDA!=n

"SIR device drivers"


  • Option: IRTTY_SIR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IrTTY (uses Linux serial driver)
    • depends on IRDA
      Say Y here if you want to build support for the IrTTY line discipline. To compile it as a module, choose M here: the module will be called irtty-sir. IrTTY makes it possible to use Linux's own serial driver for all IrDA ports that are 16550 compatible. Most IrDA chips are 16550 compatible so you should probably say Y to this option. Using IrTTY will however limit the speed of the connection to 115200 bit/s (IrDA SIR mode).
      If unsure, say Y.

"Dongle support"


  • Option: DONGLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Serial dongle support
    • depends on IRTTY_SIR
      Say Y here if you have an infrared device that connects to your computer's serial port. These devices are called dongles. Then say Y or M to the driver for your particular dongle below.
      Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all the questions about serial dongles.


  • Option: ESI_DONGLE

The driver should also support the MA620 USB version of the dongle, if the integrated USB-to-RS232 converter is supported by usbserial. To activate support for MA600 dongle you will have to start irattach like this: irattach -d ma600.

      Say Y here if you want to build support for the IrPORT IrDA device driver. To compile it as a module, choose M here: the module will be called irport. IrPORT can be used instead of IrTTY and sometimes this can be better. One example is if your IrDA port does not have echo-canceling, which will work OK with IrPORT since this driver is working in half-duplex mode only. You don't need to use irattach with IrPORT, but you just insert it the same way as FIR drivers (insmod irport io=0x3e8 irq=11). Notice that IrPORT is a SIR device driver which means that speed is limited to 115200 bit/s.
      If unsure, say Y.
