Hi All

I am having problems activating smsd automatically at boot up.
However, there is no operator keyboard input allowed, so cannot type in password.

Questions:
Why is SMSD installing so it requires root user privileges ??
How can I get SMSD to start automatically.

I am new to Linux, but learning fast.

Hi All

I have totally uninstalled and re-installed as per instructions on this site,however when I go to
follow instructions to allow "Running smsd as an unpriviledged user" certain files are not installed.
For example:

PIDFILE smsd.pid
and
INFOFILE smsd.working
Searching the whole disk for them finds no results.

Considering this, how am I going to be able to start smsd at bootup or via a script.?
Setting the correct user and group still does not allow the other user.

Note that when I logon as root, it all works perfectly.

Regards

Hi All

Well I may as well keep emailing myself.??? or perhaps help others with similar problems.

Discovered the way to start smsd as root from a script or within my application.


Then I had to change permissions on the /var/spool/sms/outgoing to allow my application to copy files there.

The next problem is a Linux Mint problem where I want to make sure that the correct usb port
is addressed automatically. I can't simply set ttyUSB0 or 1 as it changes between boots.
Editing the .rules file with a SYMLINK simply does not work.
I have tried dozens of suggestions.
BUT, discovered that Mint creates it's own SYMLINK when it detects a device connected to the usb port.
The thing is that in my code I can do a VERY long path and name to open a port, but smsd is objecting to this.

Can someone tell me what the string length limit is for device ??
