Debian secretary wont work with pon.
thanks for the help, now xringd is working all right. But i have
problems using it with pon.
My /etc/xringd.conf file:
-a cat /home/filsin/ring.au > /dev/audio
R 1-5 R 10 : pon
It is supposted that when i let the phone line make 2 rings, after 10
sec. pon should be executed by xrind, isnit?
Well it doesnot.
So probably the problem is with pon.
When is xringd working?? You can see:
When doing nothing with pon, xringd works (it play the audio file.)
When putting pon in a terminal, linux stay there, so i must press ctrl-c
to let him show me the prompt again.... [ PROBLEM 1 ]
After that xringd is still working.
Doing pon again will do nothing, but plog said: pppd : tcsetattr:
Invalid argument. Exit (after that xringd is still working) [ PROBLEM
So i must put pon a 3-th time. This time pon works so at this moment im
conected to internet. (line busy, so xringd dont hear any rings...)
Poff. After that xringd doesnt work anymore :-< [ PROBLEM 3 ]
I think maybe if i can find what is making the problems 1, 2, and 3,
then xrind will work....
Some email ago, Brian said i should do this:

so here are my files:

/etc/init.d/xringd stop > /dev/null
