Modem detection progress

July 25, 2008 — BarryK
Analog dialup modem detection is somewhat broken in 4.1alpha4, due to the lack of automatic detection of serial hardware modems at bootup.


Modem bugs fixed
Username: BarryK
Rerwin found two subtle bugs in the modem scripts, and worked out fixes. I have applied these. 1. A problem can arise if the 'Modem' entry in /etc/wvdial.conf is "/dev/modem" rather than the actual port. 2. Well, not subtle, just that this has been an ongoing problem. We use 'eval' in a couple of the modem scripts and sometimes what gets fed to 'eval' doesn't evaluate. I found that gtkdialog3 is returning some unexpected stuff on stdout, so I have put in a generic fix before all eval lines.
