@M0YNG would be great to look if that weird federation issue is still happening.
I'm on latest 2.6.1+glitch here.
@QBFreak yes ! cutted last pins of a db25 to make a db23 for my amiga video out.
when you needs something and it's easy to do, even if not pretty, if it works...
@QBFreak yeah nice idea !
I still have pre-made ones lying in a box, but the one I use most frequently are DIY one, with the wrong cable, and way to short.. but they works!
@QBFreak now I'm thinking it would be a really good idea to test all my various serial cables with a better method than "does it works ? is it a null modem or..."
@QBFreak I've used two MCP23017 in I2C on a pi with wirinpi lib to drive and read a keyboard matrix
Theorically 8 max on one I2C port, 128I/O max
since you know which cable to test you can use the same line for multiple connectors and use less I/O
add a lcd, few buttons, a SD card shield and you're done
@QBFreak a FPGA could do it but less easy than an arduino or raspberrypi and a bunch of I/O multiplexers
