A friend at work asked me to get his modem working with his
linux box. I had a crack at it but keep getting the error:
TIOCMGET failed: Input/output error
The machine is a 233 PII Dell
The kernel is compiled for ppp and slip.
I tried wvdial, minicom and kppp on /dev/ttyS0-3 and /dev/cua0-3
and I still get no response. The serial port + modem works fine
under windows, I even tried the modem on my machine and it works.
I have tried everything obvious. Any ideas?
