I am trying to get the system to recognize the FTD2XX driver for an FT232 UART-USB interface to work (Linux has the FTDI_SIO driver built in kernel, but is not compatible). I followed the instructions to install the driver and to use
sudo rmmod ftdi_sio

sudo rmmod usbserial
But right after I unload the drivers nothing happens. I don't know how to tell the system to use the FT2XX driver or if it should be automatic and I messed up the installation.

Help is very much appreciated.
