Hi why does getty ps change the port permission of a serial port and how can
I change this?
Read the manual perhaps? From mgetty.config:
# use these options to make the /dev/tty-device owned by "uucp.uucp"
# and mode "rw-rw-r--" (0664). *LEADING ZERO NEEDED!*
# use these options to make incoming faxes owned by "root.uucp"
# and mode "rw-r-----" (0640). *LEADING ZERO NEEDED!*

Sorry, I cancelled this post as soon as I noticed that you were using
getty_ps and mot mgetty. It shouldn't have got to you. I don't know
why I read mgetty. Perhaps because a dim memory tells me that mgetty
sprang from the loins of getty_ps (and/or ugetty).
: mgetty trying to init the modem every few minutes, and I want to use auto
: answer on the modem....
No, you really, really don't.
The modem should not be in autoanswer mode. The getty's job is to put
it into answer mode when it receives a ring on the line, if it's configured
You should be using mgetty to control the modem. It's infinitely
better. I wasn't aware that getty_ps was even maintained these days. Is
it ... hmmm?
Does anyone know if you can change file permissions on a DOS partition. I'm
using WINE and a warning comes up telling me that the permissions need to
be changed. Everything I try doesn't work, all the files stay as root.
