Question gnokii, IrDA-USB (Sigmatel STIr4200), Nokia 7620


I have a Nokia 7620 phone, a Sigmatel IrDA-USB dongle (STIr4200) and
am running Ubuntu 5.10.

I installed gnokii using the Synaptic package manager.

First, I plug in the USB dongle. When I do a dmesg, I get:

[#,#] usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
[#,#] SigmaTel STIr4200 IRDA/USB found at address 4, Vendor: 66f, Product: 4200
[#,#] drivers/net/irda/stir4200.c: IrDA: Registered SigmaTel device irda0

Now, I use the following script to start the IR:

I get the error:
ERROR: Module irda is in use by ircomm_tty,ircomm

However, irda0 shows up when I run ifconfig:

irda0 Link encap:IrLAP HWaddr 00:00:00:00
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:14 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:8
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:216 (216.0 b)

Now, when I run irdadump with the phone (IR activated) in front of the module:

14:41:07.260247 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=0 (14)
14:41:07.360223 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=1 (14)
14:41:07.460208 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=2 (14)
14:41:07.560193 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=3 (14)
14:41:07.660180 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=4 (14)
14:41:07.741260 xid:rsp a1a1bc66 < 00004ac7 S=6 s=4 Nokia 7260 hint=b125 [ PnP Modem Fax Telephony IrCOMM IrOBEX ] (27)
14:41:07.760163 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=5 (14)
14:41:07.860147 xid:cmd a1a1bc66 > ffffffff S=6 s=* dopefish hint=0400 [ Computer ] (24)

So, I guess the phone is being sensed by the dongle.

The gnokii rc file I'm using is:

Now, when I run gnokii --identify:

GNOKII Version 0.6.8
Gnokii serial_open: tcgetattr: Input/output error
Couldn't open FBUS device: Input/output error
Gnokii serial_open: tcgetattr: Input/output error
Couldn't open FBUS device: Input/output error
Gnokii serial_open: tcgetattr: Input/output error
Couldn't open FBUS device: Input/output error
Telephone interface init failed: Command failed.

pkot on IRC was of the opinion that there is something wrong with the
IR configuration. When I do an lsmod | grep ir:

irport 11936 0
stir4200 13572 0
ircomm_tty 32776 0
ircomm 19588 1 ircomm_tty
irda 159804 4 irport,stir4200,ircomm_tty,ircomm
crc_ccitt 2176 1 irda
usbcore 104188 6 stir4200,usblp,usbhid,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

And when I do a ps aux | grep ir:
root 10101 0.0 0.0 1548 500 ? S 15:10 0:00
irattach irda0 -s
root 11786 0.0 0.0 1548 500 ? S 16:45 0:00
irattach irda0 -s
root 14702 0.0 0.0 1548 500 ? S 20:08 0:00
irattach irda0 -s
root 14706 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? R 20:08 0:00 [irda0]
root 14931 0.0 0.0 3068 764 pts/0 R+ 20:22 0:00 grep ir

Now, I don't know what gnokii expects the IR configuration to be. How
do I go about checking whether IR is working fine? Has anyone gotten
gnokii to work with the Sigmatel IrDA dongle? If so, any tips?

Any help whatsoever will be greatly appreciated.
