Lots of things happening both today and yesterday. Let's
start with yesterday (friday)....
First of all, I was kinda stressed. Switching between
phonecalls with Telenor Bedrift that transfered me to
Telenor Privat that transfered me back to Telenor Bedrift
that finally transferred me to Telenor Multicom. Telenor
Multicom asked me to call Telenor Installasjon, and in the
end of the day, when I came home from school (yes, I was in
school trying to do this), I saw a nice white "Telenor NT1"
box in the "server room".
However, I didn't come home before about 20:00 in the
evening. What did I do in the meantime? If you call waiting
for a guy to show up so that you can hold the month's
admin-meeting amongst LiLo developers, I had a great time.
Reading the same posts on slashdot about 4 hours really gets
to you. Oh yes, the guy didn't show up...hmm...transport
problem. Why can't he move to a more central place or get
that damned ISDN-line of his actually working so that we
could have on-line meetings? argh....c++-people! ;-)
When I got home, the only thing I managed to do was to send
off the seating arrangements for the #linux.no row at The Gathering 1900
and jump into bed. No time exploring ISDN possibilities
Saturday started great, with no ISDN working. Telenor
Bedrift transferred me to Telenor Multicom that told me that
the line WAS working (haven't gotten that ISDN phone from
Ascom yet). Finally I got to know that maybe I should put
the ISDN card from pluto (which will soon be taken to one of
the LiLo developers) into aganemnon. After all, the ISDN
card in pluto DID work perfectly, and it didn't need any
setup in isapnp. Perfect...well...not exactly.
Everything ended with that I had to download the 2.2.14
kernel over a 28.8 modem (thank God for that extra analogue
line). And after a reboot, the isdn card driver loaded.
But...that doesn't mean that everything is perfect, of
course. Now isdn4k-utils didn't work... after a couple of
hours fighting libraries and not finding /dev/isdnctrl which
DID exist, I downloaded the latest CVS version. Of course, I
couldn't use the old scripts which are used on pluto since
it's a newer version. Another two hours changing scripts,
and I'm online. With ISDN. Great? :-)
Now it's time to explore those endless (well...)
possibilities of fax and voice (vbox) via ISDN.
