Review of Linux Compatibility

The Rosewill RC-301 is a PCI card, which provides two additional serial ports. The card bases on the Moschip NM9835-based which is supported by the Linux kernel since version 2.6.x out of the box.

Two additional /dev/ttyS devices are created by the Linux kernel in addition to the normally already existing ones, if the card is found during the boot sequence of the Linux distribution:

console [tty0] enabled
ttyS0: detected caps 00000700 should be 000001000000:02:00.0: ttyS0 at I/O 0xe060 (irq = 16) is a 16C950/954
ttyS1: detected caps 00000700 should be 000001000000:02:00.0: ttyS1 at I/O 0xe068 (irq = 16) is a 16C950/954
ttyS2: detected caps 00000700 should be 000001000000:02:00.0: ttyS2 at I/O 0xe070 (irq = 16) is a 16C950/954
ttyS3: detected caps 00000700 should be 000001000000:02:00.0: ttyS3 at I/O 0xe078 (irq = 16) is a 16C950/954
usb 3-4: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0

An configuration manual is provided by Rosewill for download (it is part of the driver download file, which actually does not contain any drivers since these are already part of the Linux standard kernel. Instead it includes an ASCII file (Linux S.txt) which explains the configuration of the two additional serial ports). The file can be found at http://www.rosewill.com/products/714/ProductDetail_Download.htm.
