>Nope, the other Vario driver didn't work at all. It didn't even start up. 

It should've. Did you have your display in emulation mode 1 (which really is
native mode)? If you are used to using the vh driver then you have it in
emulation mode 2 (handyTdch emulation).

Perhaps, but I doubt it.

You can add the option "noprobe" to the "text brltty=" line, but that disables
all probing. I know of no way to disable just serial port probing. I've been
trying to convince RedHat that their probing should skip open devices, but they
don't seem to understand the generality and properness of this recommendation. 
Perhaps you could try "noprobe" and let me know how well (or not well) it
wworks. I should add some notes to the web page about this sort of stuff.
