Hi, I am a new user of Linux particularly fedora. I have a project that I need to work with this kind of software. So as a starter, I tried starting to read Linux and fedora and softwares needed to connect my mobile fone with my laptop.
I installed fedora 12, gnokii and gnocky on my laptop and it was successful. Then I tried connecting my Nokia 3110c into my laptop using USB cable because this is what my project needs just USB cable. Then I tried configuring gnokiirc config file according to what was needed. I had some samples from the internet on how to configure gnokiirc. Unfortunately, during the execution of gnocky, It produce lots of errors like:
Couldn't open Phonet device: inappropriate ioctl for device error in link initialisation:1 cfg_file_read - open /root/.gnokiirc: no such file or directory couldn't read /root/.gnokiirc config file
I tried running gnokii --identify to know whether it can actually detect my mobile fone but it says:
gnokii version 0.6.28 couldn't read /home/monetteski/.gnokiirc config file log: debug mask is 0x1
config read from file /etc/gnokiirc model = 3110c port = /dev/ttyUSB0 connection = dlr3p (i wonder why is it this because i configured it as SERIAL) initlength = default serial baudrate = 19200 handshake - software
Connecting serial device : opening device /dev/ttyUSB0 gnokii serial_open: open: no such file or directory couldn't open FBUS device: no such file or directory error in link initialisation:1 telephone interface init failed: Command failed
quittng command failed.
I can't exactly understand all the errors. I tried my best to search for tutorials, samples on how to solve this problems but still i didn't find one. I am having difficulty working on this as this is my first time to work on open source. I tried joining forums to ask for help and one replied to my problem suggesting to ask from the experts like you. Please, help me with this and please do bear with me. I have no one to ask but you and I am working on this project alone.
Thank you so much in advance for whatever help you can extend me.
