Re: [hylafax-users] Debian upgrade from 4.2.2 - 4.2.5:

I finally got the nerve to upgrade my Hylafax from Debian stable (Sarge) to testing so that I could get the new modem features and security patches. I'm receiving faxes fine on the two internal serial ports, but by PCI SiiG 2-port card is problematic. I want to send on ttyS2.

faxstat reports that ttyS2 (the first Siig port) is "waiting for modem to come free"

cu can talk to the modem on ttyS2 when it is not engaged with Hylafax in other ways.

I double-checked the setserial settings, in case the upgrade changed them in some way.

I re-read the installation instructions, but I must have missed something. Where should I look now? Thanks.


The last time I was on a debian install, I was surprised by the fact that the init script synchronised /etc/hylafax and /var/spool/hylafax/etc, and also that it was itself starting faxgetty, if configured to do so. The init script sources a config file something like (from memory) /etc/defaults/hylafax and this file tells the init script how to handle the starting of faxgetty. I guess what I'm saying here is just to make sure you understand how faxgetty is being started on your system.

Is it possible you have a couple of different faxgettys fighting for the modem? Do you only ever see one in the process table?

What if you run probemodem on ttyS2 when there are no faxgettys running right after a cold boot of the server and a power-cycle of the modem? Can it chat with the modem?
