    Subjectproblem with select() - 2.4.5

    Hi !
    I have a problem with reading from a serial port using select() under
    2.4.5. What I am doing is basically the following:

    fd_set readfds;
    struct timeval timeout;
    int s;

    serialfd = open("/dev/ttyS0", O_RDWR );


    timeout.tv_sec = 2; /* ! */
    timeout.tv_usec = 0;

    s=select(serialfd+1, &readfds, NULL, NULL, &timeout);

    But s is always equal to 0 even when I am sure there are data to read.
    If I use

    s=select(serialfd+1, NULL, &writefds, NULL, &timeout);

    (with the corresponding initialisation of writefds) it returns s=1 and I
    can write to the serial port. I can see that since the lights of the modem
    are flashing.
    I noticed that behavior since I tried to send some "ATZ" with the
    write-function but I never got the "OK" back.

    However, the same programme works under 2.2.19.

    Any help, please ?
