modem wont answer calls

Post by ShadoMi » Mon, 07 Dec 1998 04:00:00

i have a hayes optima 144 smartmodem on my linux box.

I'm running slackware, 2.0.30 on a 486dx33

If i put a line in inittab like:

   d1:1234:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -s 38400 ttyS0

It writes the following error to the console

  mgetty FATAL: yS0 can't get TIO

and then terminates, and respawns too quickly.

does anyone know whats going on here?


1. Fall 94 Yggdrasil wont answer dial-in modem

I've recently aquired the Yggdrasil Fall 94 P & P release and am having
trouble setting it up for modem dial-in.

Ive read the Serial-HOWTO & Yggdrasil's docs but getty won't answer the

I've set the modem up to auto answer & have been able to launch minicom &
talk to a dumb terminal through the phone line but i cant get the system
to answer the
dial in and allow someone to log on.

Im pretty sure ive got a fairly recent release of getty_ps.

Could some one out there using Fall 94 Yggdrasil post or send me their
config files? - namely:

"/etc/inittab" entries
"/etc/getty/ttyS?" config file

and any other pertinent config info(modem etc).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
