wedged - HylaFAX modem wedged script
/var/spool/hylafax/bin/wedged devid device
bin/wedged is the command script invoked by the facsimile server when a
modem is deemed to be in an irreparable state and requires operator
intervention. This decision is based on the setting of the
MaxSetupAttempts configuration parameter described in hylafax-
config(5). The default wedged script sends electronic mail to the
FaxMaster alias. The interval at which emails are sent can be
configured in the etc/FaxDispatch file by setting the
WEDGED_EMAIL_INTERVAL variable to the desired number of minutes (emails
will be sent no more than every WEDGED_EMAIL_INTERVAL minutes, until
the wedged condition persists). If the variable
WEDGED_DISABLE_FAXGETTY is set in etc/FaxDispatch then the script will
attempt to disable any faxgetty processes spawned by the init(8)
process for the problematic modem. In addition the faxq(8) process
automatically disables use of the modem for servicing outbound jobs.
The devid argument is the identifier derived from the name of the
modem's device file by substituting ``_'' characters for ``/''
characters; e.g. term_10 for /dev/term/10. The device argument is the
name of the character special device associated with the modem.
If there exists an executable file /var/spool/hylafax/etc/resetmodem
then that file will be executed upon execution of the wedged script in
an effort to recover the modem.
