can you just suggest me or tell me that how can I check my serial port on my ARM target board that is working correctly and how can I configure serial post ???

I mean that , as we configure fb0 for LVDS LCD and configure it and send any image on it that's same how can I check my serial port and check it that whether its working correctly or not ??

    Interesting question you asked. I don't know how to activate a serial port other then enabling the driver if one is included in the kernel or manually install the driver. The best way to test if a device is working is to confirm the kernel detects it. The most widely used method is lspci.

    In a terminal:
    #sudo lspci

    This lists all the devices on your system, with name, location, extensions and drivers.

    Read this article to get a better understanding of kernel modules.

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/kernel_modules

    Bestly, just connect something to the serial port and see if it gets read.
