a quick question, I hope.
I walkd away from my laptop tonight for about 5 mins while it was connected
to the net. When I came back, the line had dropped and when I tried to
restart the connection, it told me that permission had been denied for
I'm using SuSE 6.2 and Wvdial as the dialer. I have no problem running
wvdial as root and before the problem arose, I could run it as an ordinary
user also. On typing in "ls -l /dev/ttyS3" the following came back:
crw-r----- 1 root uucp 4, 67 Sep 19 00:38 /dev/ttyS3
Any ideas how to remedy the problem? Is one of the flags incorrect? I
noticed that if I did ls -l /dev/ttyS4, I got:
crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 4, 68 Sep 19 00:38 /dev/ttyS4
Is it the missing w in the permissions that is causing the problems?
