<P><FONT SIZE=2>E-mail him at hpa@zytor.com or hpa@transmeta.com.&nbsp; He just provided a major number for me for Systran's SCRAMNet mirrored memory network.&nbsp; His only condition for assigning new major numbers is that a) the device name be relatively self explanatory, and b) that a driver already be in the works.</FONT></P>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; Hello all.</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; I'm writing a Linux driver for the new Octoport multiport </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; (4/8) rs232 PCI</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; board (saled by Computer Modules, Inc. <A HREF="http://www.compumodules.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.compumodules.com/</A>).</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; Computer Modules SUPPORTS this work (providing me all </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; necessary resources),</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; and maybe it will support moreother in the future.</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; At this moment, the driver development is at the initial </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; phase (board detection</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; and configuration), but I believe a major number for the </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; associated devices</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; is needed. Do I have to ask Peter Anvin &lt;hpa@zytor.com&gt; (maintainer of</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt)?</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; </FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; I hope this work can be useful for various users and goals.</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt; My best regards, Massimo</FONT>
