I've just loaded the Caldera preview II with Red Had 2.0.
I then grabbed and built kermit. When I first ran kermit it
was unable to scribble into /var/lock. To fix this I set permissions on
var/lock to set group uucp. Is this proper?
Linux from the Dec 1994 InfoMagic 4 CD-ROM set. I've finally got my
modem working but I now get a permission error when I start kermit.
Seyon doesn't complain at all.
I'm sure it's a head slapper but I can't figure out what the heck is
Here is the grab from my xterm:
/var/lock: Permission denied
Sorry, access to lock denied: /dev/modem
?Sorry, you must SET LINE first
C-Kermit 5A(189), 30 June 93, POSIX
Type ? or HELP for help
and here is the listing for kermit:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 373764 Jul 21 1994 /usr/bin/kermit
and the /var/lock directory
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 Sep 10 19:43 lock
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 1024 Sep 11 12:20 emacs
Yeah I know I should get the latest version but I'd like to see this one
Thanks for any help,
