usbserial, nokia6100


Hi,

i have a problem connecting my nokia 6100 via usb (using usb2serial cable with pl2303) with my slackware 10, it works nicely with fedora core 2 (kernel 2.6.8.1), but since i work mostly under slackware it would be nie to hear from anybody who got this working what kernel he uses??
I receive the following error:
root@localhost:/root# gammu --identify
Error opening device. Doesn't exist.

but the config file ist the same that works under redhat, my gaamurc looks like that:
[gammu0]

port = /dev/ttyUSB0
model = 6100
connection = fbuspl2303
#synchronizetime = yes
#logfile = gammulog
#logformat = textall
#use_locking = yes
#gammuloc = locfile
#startinfo = yes
#gammucoding = utf8


but the device is there, and has the correct major and minor numbers (0,188):
ls -l /dev/ttyUSB0
crwxrwxrwx 1 root root 188, 0 2004-10-30 21:09 /dev/ttyUSB0


i have tried 2.4.26, also kernel 2.6.7. and 2.6.81 didn't work,
i tried copying the files /etc/hotplug and /etc/hotplug.d from fedora to slackware, then restarting the hotplug-dameon, but it gave me the following error:
** can't synthesize root hub events

the modules usbserial and pl2303 are loaded at startup so everything shouild be fine..

anybody has this usbserial thing working and give me a hint on what kernel version i should use, and or what version of the hotplug-daemon, or any suggestions where the problem could be??

maybe the following info from /proc might be of interest for someone ?

Hi.

Could you give us the output from 'lsmod' under Slack and Fedora?

I think I've got it.

A lot of USB stuff relies on ACPI being present before it'll work (for example, I couldn't get USB Flash drives to work without it).

Try modprobe ing asus_acpi in Slack, and see if that makes any difference.

Hi there, I have a very similar problem... I've got as far as stellarboy was at at the beginning (it's taken me a couple of nights, and my girlfiend's not really talking to me) so I have the phone connected, and looking like it should work. I would like to

modprobe asus_acpi

but I am running mandrake 10, and have had no success using modprobe since I moved to the 2.6 kernel

I do get this message from the configure desktop application though:

Your computer seems to have a partial ACPI installation. ACPI was probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you need to enable at least 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then rebuild your kernel.

I didn't think I would have to enable ACPI if I didn't have a laptop! Does this really mean a kernel rebuild (if so, I'll do it, but would rather not after last time!)

Hope you don't mind me butting into your thread

Stu

Hi all,

Since it's Nokia 6100, I thougt I'd post here my experience. The phone is a Nokia 6101, connected through a cheap USB cable bought from ebay (CA-42/dku5). I'm running Mandriva One 2007 and installed gnokii 0.6.14., here's the config file:

[global]
port = /dev/usb/tts/0
model = 6101
initlength = default
connection = serial
use_locking = yes
smsc_timeout = 10
[gnokiid]
bindir = /usr/sbin/
debug = on
rlpdebug = off
xdebug = off

Works well, although when reading from the phone, one name is asociated with only one number(the one that is default on the phone). Is it possible to get all the numbers associated with a name?
Thanks,
