    I had a Specialix card running under 5.0.6 without any problem. What
    symptoms do you see, what error messages?

    There was no error message either in the console or in
    /var/adm/syslog. Even though the specialix ports having live
    connections, terminals does not response. I have 24 ports connected
    to this specialix card. out of which 4 worked. Even in those
    terminals, once login and logout done, they have hanged. what are the
    workarounds needed to have the terminal work normally under 5.0.6.

    Thanks for your help. I am using gettydefs from 5.0.5 and vt100/vt220 terminals.

    I have loaded rs506a again. This time all the terminals are working fine.

    I shall observe this for a week.

    Thanks again.

    Perl's knowledge base has an article explaining how to solve this issue. Has
    something to do with replacing the after rs506a getty with the previous
    version.
