I just moved my fax over to the Linux box (from Win '95), and efax was what
I chose to install.
I did some test faxen, and they were received and printed perfectly.
My problem is that I use diald to demand-dial when I need a connection to
my ISP (that works fine, too) and 'efax' doesn't seem to work properly re:
In my diald configuration, I told it to use 'lock', so whenever it tries to
bring up the IP layer, it writes a file: '/var/lock/LCK..cua1'. I also
told efax that it needs to share and lock, with the '-s -x
The problem is that with efax running, the /var/lock/LCK..cua1 file exists
so diald never is able to run. For now I'm running wo/ the -x option to
efax, but (obviously) there are big problems with this. According to the
efax docs, it will not write the lock file when the -s option is given -
yet it seems to!
Any help would be appreciated,
