Description Need Real Name 2001-08-28 10:10:53 EDT
Hello,

I downloaded and rebuild sms_client-2.0.8y-7.src.rpm. Now I want to use it
and I have two problems:
- As a normal user, I cannot send a message. The computer says:
[ted@lorient scripts]$ sms_client xxxxxx 'test'
ERROR: Opening logfile: /var/log/smslog

I suppose it is a problem with the rights of the file smslog
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          280 Aug 28 15:50 smslog

- As root, I cannot send a SMS either:
[root@lorient log]#  sms_client xxxxxx 'test'
ERROR: Parsing file '/etc/sms/services/minicall'
ERROR: Unrecoverable Failure Parsing file '/etc/sms/services/minicall'
ERROR: Driver Initialization Failed
Total Elapsed Time: 0 Seconds

There is no /etc/sms/services/minicall but there is a
/var/spool/sms/services/minicall (empty directory BTW).
I think there is a configuration problem somewhere but I did not find where
the location of the directory minicall was specified


Best regards


Daniel

sms_client is gone in 7.2, so i close it.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-10-17 02:26:22 EDT
But 7.2 is not out yet and I am using 7.1
I would have appreciated some help

I have done a previous sms_client installation from tar file,
and may be able to help.  I'm trying to install the rpm too.

/etc/sms/services should be a directory not a file.
This looks like a bug in the RH packaging (tar -> rpm).
The /etc/sms/services file should really be /etc/sms/services/vstream.
The issues for normal users are standard for sms_client.
You get problems like cant open log file, lock file, modem device.
On my system I get around this by making the sms_client binary
set-gid uucp, and make /var/log/smslog writable by group uucp.
