HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
modem appears wedged
I am having some difficulty in installing Hylafax.
I am using Hylafax 4.0pl2, on a Pentium 133 running Red Hat6.1, with a
single USR 56K Faxmodem
I can access the modem by useing: "cu-l ttyS0" and pass whatever commands
to it I want. So I think I have my serial port set up correctly. But
Hylafax does not seem to be able to connect to the modem.
Here is the problem:
I setup Hylafax and everything seems fine. I use sendfax to submit a fax to
go out and faxstat reports this:
HylaFAX scheduler on localhost.localdomain: Running
Modem ttyS0 (+1.999.555.1212): Waiting for modem to come ready
After about 5 minutes I will get mail in my root account that says something
to the effect that Hylafax thinks that there is a problem with the device
/dev/ttyS0. The device appears wedged.
Here is /var/log/messages says about this:
May 31 17:26:48 localhost HylaFAX: Filesystem has SysV-style file
May 31 17:26:48 localhost FaxQueuer: SUBMIT JOB 2
May 31 17:27:05 localhost FaxSend: /dev/ttyS0: Can not initialize
May 31 17:28:18 localhost FaxSend: Unable to setup modem on /dev/ttyS0;
giving up after 2 attempts
May 31 17:28:18 localhost FaxQueuer: MODEM /dev/ttyS0 appears to be
May 31 17:28:18 localhost FaxQueuer: MODEM WEDGED: bin/wedged "ttyS0"
May 31 17:28:58 localhost FaxGetty: OPEN /dev/ttyS0
May 31 17:29:04 localhost FaxGetty: /dev/ttyS0: Can not initialize
If this helps here is my /var/spool/hylafax/etc/config.ttyS0
