HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
Re: FaxQueuer[faxq PID]: JOB xx: bad exit status 0x6 from sub-fork
ok, first double check /etc/inittab HP-UX use a 3 device scheme and its
easy to have one getty on the tty device and another on the cul device,
faxgetty should always be on the cul device on its own.
Next check the privileges on /var/spool/locks the faxd daemon which sends
the fax runs as user uucp group sys. If this cannot create a lock file in
the /var/spool/locks directory, you will end up with an error like the one
you described below.
ie on my machine:
# ls -ld /var/spool/locks
drwxrwxr-x 2 root sys 1024 Apr 16 22:48 /var/spool/locks
If you still have problems set the ServerTracing and SessionTracing
parameters to higher values and try again, with luck the problem will be
obvious in the logs.
