HylaFAX 3.0 beta 100. Zoom VFX V.32bis Faxmodem; Rockwell datapump.
1: Start faxq from rc.local, no options on the command line.
2: Stary faxgetty from init, i.e. a line in /etc/ttys.
I use the non modem control device, however it's nonstandard
hardware and I've modified the driver to always return sighup
on lost carrier to solve some sticky problems with non modem
control devices never getting SIGHUP's.
Basically, I just did as the directions said to do. Ran faxaddmodem
script to configure the type of modem. I did have to simplify some
lines in the script, the ones executed in a subshell, since I
think my version of bash doesn't handle subshells correctly.
RTFM and you should be OK unless your modem is braindead and
stupid, not too unlikely tho given the current state of Fax
