Hi Tim,

I think I understand what you mean.  I set up mgetty and diald is now showing
up in 'last'.
Havent' tried yet, but maybe it is possible to set mgetty to debug 9 and make
up a script simulating xringd.  I might be totally of the mark, but with a
little timing that program/script could check for RING's in the logfile.
Providing mgetty sends the RING's to the logfile of course.
If that works, you don't have to run xringd and 'sac dialout' would work.
