d by root, uid 0
Jan  1 03:04:02 gumstix-custom-verdex daemon.notice pppd[987]: Device ttyS2
is l
ocked by pid 898
Jan  1 03:04:02 gumstix-custom-verdex pppd[987]: Exit.

i found this in var/log/messages

my script is using ttyS2 to connect but some how is locked i was thinking
maybe smth else is using it ?
or can i unlock it somehow?
strange thing is that on the other gumstix is working fine on ttyS2 any
