I changed around my chatscript and added
It never gets to the number part.
If I just have the first thing in the chatscript after the abort stuff
as dialing then it will dial out but if I expect any response from
the modem then it hangs at that point in the chatscript.
All the ways I tried charscripts work fine with the 2.2 kernel
but all hang in the 2.4.18 at the point where the script expects
something other than a "" or ''.
minicom shows the OK responses from the modem.
