I have just installed Linux mandrake 9.2 and this is a totally different OS for me, as I am used to windows variant of OS. I searched the Linux programs for modem and networking contol applications, and found MINICOM. So I Installed it, and I assume it is in my PC now.
my modem is being detected, because when I run setup wizard, the modem tries to Dial out. It it an old Diamond 56k external.
My question really has 2 parts, which I have yet to find an answer to here.
How do I set up Minicom? and how do I set it up for Pulse Dialing?
Here in East Europe we have heavy -duty impulse system, but it seems to provide fast Dialup due to Voltages and wiring configurations.
When I open a terminal, I type MINICOM ...and I get this...
minicom: there is no global configuration file /ect/minirc.dfl
Ask your sysadmin to create one (with minicom -s).
so then if I type 'minicom -s' I then get the same thing.
Ok, so this is probably a very basic queston. And probably laughable.
But keep in mind, I have had LINUX for only 4 days, and my abilities here are limited to changing screensavers, opening directories, and hard drake operations. on a good day I can open terminal directories and view help files.
Any body who has experience, or answers in this matter, advice here would be great..
