I'm in the market for an old/cheap laptop and have the opportunity to buy an
HP Omnibook 5700. My google search for Linux-IRDA support on this machine
came up indeterminate. Apparently it does not emulate a normal serial port
for SIR mode. In any case, I only need SIR mode to talk to my cell phone
(FIR would be a bonus). Can someone with first-hand knowledge confirm that
this actually works? And how did you set it up?
