General :: Can't Get Mgetty To Start From Inittab / Resolve This?

Feb 8, 2010

I've updated a Fedora Core 3 server to Fedora 11. The old FC3 had an external modem attached for when we felt like dialing in for a ppp connection.
I've replicated login.config, mgetty.config and dialin.config from the old server and had to put a RS232-to-USB adapter on the modem.
I've test connected to the server and everything look fine.
I'm have a difficult time starting the Getty session from inittab.code...

Ubuntu Servers :: Produce Dial Tone From Modem With Mgetty?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm trying to produce a dial-tone from my modem with Mgetty. I found this online: I recently discovered a feature that's part of the command set of some voice modems that enables it to produce tones. The latter is of interest to us since the US dial-tone and others are a combination of two frequencies (440Hz and 350Hz in the US). Below is an ordered list of AT commands that initialize the modem, produce a dialtone for 2.5 seconds and answers the call. To check if the "AT+VTS" command is supported, or to get the parameter value ranges supported by it, use "AT+VTS=?"

Ubuntu :: Firefox Takes 30 Second To Start , Used To Be Instant / Resolve This?

Oct 16, 2010

My Firefox used to start instantly, or at least near instant, but since yesterday it took about 30 sec to launch. Opening subsequent windows is near instant, but once all windows are closed it would take a long time to open again.

When I open it up in a terminal, it has absolutely no error message, clean start up and shutdown.

I turned up the CPU clock speed from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz and it doesn't seem to help. Other programs starts fine too, so I kind of ruled out performance issue.

Yesterday I also tinkered with compiz settings and also installed the cairo dock and some media codecs. But I can't pinpoint when does it happen exactly, I also struggle to draw any relationship if there is any. And if it matters Firefox is 3.6.10 and Ubuntu is 10.04.

General :: Initializing Run Level 4 At Inittab Default Level

Jan 15, 2011

hello everyone, im having a problem when my computer enters in the run level 4 as the default when i start slackware. The strange thing is that it not seems that is a X window problem, it looks like more like a configuration problem in some part of the kde script to initialize the log in, because if i manually start the X service it works fine, i dont know what is the source. Thank you in advance for the help.

CentOS 5 :: Gdm Won't Autostart Even With Id:5:initdefault: In /etc/inittab

Apr 18, 2011

I have a new CentOS 5.6 installation. It was installed in text mode. I have changed the line id:3:initdefault: in /etc/inittab to id:5:inittab. Even after that change, gdm does not start automatically. gdm is installed, and can be started from the command line. I have put DISPLAYMANAGER="GNOME" and DESKTOP="GNOME" in /etc/sysconfig/desktop.

I would like to get gdm to start automatically.

I observer that rhgb is running after startup:
