Hello,

Where can I find the documentation/manual that comes with the
"/sbin/uugetty" command bundled in slackware 2.2 ?

TIA

Christian.

Have a look at the man page for getty.  Getty and uugetty are essentially
the same thing - uugetty has support for uucp style lockfiles, though, so
your comms program, uugetty and uucp can all peacefully co-exist!

J'espere que cela peut t'aider un peu!  Dis bonjour a Paris de ma part. :)

I would advise you to use mgetty. The documentation of getty and related stuff
is highly inaccurate and a large number of people have never gotten the getty's
that come with Slackware to work. mgetty's documentation is excellent.

This comment--and many others like it over months' time--mystifies me. The
gettys known as getty_ps and uugetty are in fact adequately documented in
both their man pages and sample files included with the distrubution.

As a musician rather than computer guru, I believe that if +I+ can figure
these things out, using uugetty on one line used for generic telecom
dialout, telecom dialin, uucp dialout, =and= uucp dialin, the documentation
can't be too bad, and the software isn't either.

You might try an ftp site like tsx-11.mit.edu in dir pub/linux/doc/HOWTO.
There's a lot of good stuff there. The docs I have are for the uugetty
packaged with kernel 1.1.59 on Infomagic CD, and were in dir /usr/doc/getty_ps.

Ummm. Which distribution do you use? getty_ps source package, or the one
shipped with Slackware? The former *is* quite good, but the latter, alas,
is horrible. Still. Nothing is documented as installed, the "default"
files are in a different place than the documentation says, sometimes
uugetty dumps core... everything very unsatisfying (at least that's how it
was when I looked last time).

Well, my personal opinion is that mgetty is better (I *do* have to say
that, though, since I'd never admit differently), but someone looking very
closely at my code will find a few fragments from getty_ps... so it can't
be that bad either :)

Actually, I think getty_ps is a very good program, but the various people
packaging broken Linux distributions from it, and hacking together linux
specific adaptions to get it to work (humble?) with the ttyS/cua scheme
have hurt it very much.

Is this compiled "/sbin/uugetty" bundled in slack 2.2 coming from :

                        getts_ps package
                        mgetty   package
                     or agetty   package ???
TIA.

        One warning. The Examples/gettydefs now no longer works on the
fixed baud rate entries. I just spent a while tearing my hair out because
flow control wasn't being enabled on incoming calls. The example fixed
baud gettydefs entry doesn't have CRTSCTS in it, and it now seems to
matter, where it worked before. Unfortunately, I rarely use the incoming
dial feature so I don't know how long it's been broken.

I think Slackware getty = getty_ps.

I'd vote for getty_ps. Agetty, to my knowledge, doesn't support any device
locking (what uugetty does), and mgetty's interface and line behaviour is
sufficiently different that noone would try to sell it as "uugetty" :)

1. uugetty line discipline. Where is documentation?

I am trying to set up a dial in line with 8 data bits, 1 stop bit,
no parity.  I assume these are the line disciple parameters
referred to into in the serial-howto.  However, neither the
howto or the man pages indicate how to specify these
parameters.  I tried this:

d0:23456:respawn:/sbin/uugetty ttyS0 38400 vt100 8N1

in my inittab file.  Haven't yet been able to test it, but
if true to form, probably won't work.  Suggestions?
