In Reply to: [gentoo-user] wvdial: dialup for users by "Alan E. Davis"
1 There are a couple of groups that you need to add your users to. -
2 "dialout" and "uucp".
4 Reading the message at the end of emerging wvdial tells you this. Also
5 reading the ebuild gives you the same information.
7 I am not criticising you, thiose messages flash by very quickly, and
8 reading the ebuild is not everyone's first port of call, but if I
9 educate one person to read the documentation and save one query to the
10 list i guess my job is done :-)
12 PS don't forget you have to log in again after you have been added to a
13 group. and "id" is a good command to see what groups you are in.
