Problem with wvdial
I've installed a laptop for somebody who uses it to dial in to his ISP
via IRDA/cellphone using wvdial. This was working fine until
(presumably) a few days ago when wvdial was updated. Calling the startup
script now results in the error:
wvdial: Symbol `_ZTV6WvFile` has different size in shared object,
wvdial: streams /wvstream.cc: 169: static void WvStream::_callback(void
*): assertion `s->wvstream_execute_called` failed.
The installed relevant packages are:
Further information (probably irrelevant but anyway): System is Debian
unstable on i386. It's a Sony Vaio PCG-F707, IRDA module used is
nsc-ircc which loads fine.
The user is currently sitting there abroad without internet access, so
my ability to poke around is limited to what I can talk him through on
the phone. Any ideas on what I can do?
It'd be possible for me to send him the old packages which he could
download at an Internet cafe or somesuch, but I don't know where I can
obtain outdated packages.
Thanks for any help,
