Re: [hylafax-users] HylaFAX 4.2.1-23 and Fedora Core 3

Well, the problem with faxgetty and HylaFAX is ALMOST solved.

kppp and faxgetty coexist now, but after logging on to my ISP and then logging 
off (after about 1 hour), I tried to send a fax. faxstat reports the status 
as " Waiting for modem to come ready". It seems to be stuck in that mode and 
will not get out of it. HylaFAX thinks that the modem is still being used by 
kppp. I checked the kppp lock file - it was deleted by kppp on exit. So no 
lock file. The last time this happened, I had to open the file manager as 
root, and deleted the file /var/spool/hylafax/status/ttyS0 and then HylaFAX 
was able to continue.

Is there any way to get HylaFAX to update the status without deleteing this

temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
