Let me preface this by saying that I’m totally new to Haiku and BeOS, and I know next to nothing about software development
Here’s my problem:
I’m trying to run some old BeOS (v5.0.3) software that interfaces with some old audio hardware that I have. The software is meant to communicate with the hardware through an rs232 serial connection. While the application will open in Haiku, I get an error telling me that it is unable to open the serial port to communicate with the hardware.
I’d like to know if there’s anything I can do to get this app working in Haiku. I tried running BeOS 5.0.3 in VirtualBox and I do not get the same error. However, after configuring VirtualBox to use serial ports, the app freezes shortly after opening.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated,
