[hylafax-users] USR 56K wedged errors
I see in the archives circa 1999 that USR fax modems are not recommended
with Hylafax. Is this still the case? I have a bunch of USR 56K modems
already and was hoping to be able to use them.
I'm trying to set up Hylafax on a Debian 2.2 machine with a digi PC/Xem
16 port board and 8 of the aforementioned USR 56K modems. I did an
apt-get install hylafax-server hylafax-client hylafax-doc, so I guess
that counts as the "binary" installation; don't know how to query
Hylafax for its version.
Anyway, I followed the documentation steps. "Checking your modem"
seemed to work ok. I didn't know what to do about flow control. My tty
devices are picked by my digi board: ttyD000, etc. I ran faxsetup, and
it complained that getty-link, vgetty-link, and egetty-link were
missing, and also that font metric files were not found, then it exited
(were these errors supposed to be fatal?). I used "faxaddmodem" OK, and
left most of the fax settings, including AT commands at their default. I
then added "S0:23:respawn:/usr/sbin/faxgetty ttyD000" to /etc/inittab
and did "kill -HUP 1". At this point, I tail -f /var/log/messages and
see the following sequence repeated:
Nov 7 16:49:29 africa FaxGetty: OPEN /dev/ttyD000
Nov 7 16:49:35 africa FaxGetty: /dev/ttyD000: Can not initialize
Nov 7 16:50:48 africa FaxGetty: Unable to setup modem on
/dev/ttyD000; giving up after 2 attempts
Nov 7 16:50:48 africa FaxGetty: CLOSE /dev/ttyD000
Nov 7 16:50:48 africa FaxQueuer: MODEM WEDGED: bin/wedged
Any ideas what to do next?
Thanks in advance!
