Re: Gnokii, Gnocky Error on Fedora 12

Hi Mr. Kot,

Because of this problem, I had to do it again from the beginning to simulate the problem.  I am using Sun Virtual Box and I installed Fedora 12.  I successfully installed gnokii 0.6.28, then configured the gnokiirc.  I didn't install the gnocky because i know if gnokii can identify my Nokia 3110c, it will be easy for gnocky.

1. Please find attached the output file of gnokii using fedora 12  when I tried executing "gnokii --identify" and also the gnokiirc config file.  Some i was able to solve like copying the gnokiirc to its home directory and changed the name to ".gnokiirc" so it lessen the problem but still the attached file output is the current problem of mine where I cannot solve some errors.

2. I tried installing ubuntu 10 on Sun Virtual Box because I saw some procedure on how to install gnokii in ubuntu.  I followed the procedure entirely but still it didnt work.  Please find attached the output file of gnokii when using ubuntu and its configuration file.  Here's the link where i followed the procedure

3.  Actually, I tried one by one the connection: from serial to dku2libusb. dku5 but still the same error.  I just followed everything from all the things I gathered from the net but still it won't work.  I tried this link

4. To be honest I am just a beginner in using Linux and trying my best to really read a lot and ask help as much as possible that is why i resorted to ask help from the experts like you.

Thank you for whatever help you can extend me.  If you have any suggestion please feel free to tell me other applications i can use to make this work.

warm regards,

Can you show the sources that made you to create the config file as you did?

You get different messages when using gnocky and gnokii?

0.6.29 is out there with tons of fixes.

It doesn't matter. However it is still incorrect as according to Nokia
sites you should be using DKE-2 cable. The proper configuration is
shown at

That should be understandable message, isn't it?

I think the above one is very straightforward.

How do you think your problems are related to the software being open source?

I don't know what project is that but I'm afraid it might be tough to
move forward having problems with the basics.

take care,
