Hello...

I was looking for a program to log my serial port (it is connected to the PBX, we need to know who called who for proper accounting, in the past I used Hyperterminal in windows but since I want to Blag the computer so here i am) I think the program logserial will do but i can't seem to find it in Synaptic. Also I tried looking for it through google but all can turn up is either in tar or lsm format. Does anybody know where I can find a RPM for logserial OR could point me to an alternative program.


Thanks A Lot.

This seems to look pretty good, although I haven't tried it out yet (I'm at school!)

Thanks,

thanks for the pointers but comscan site says it is dead. anyway i was able to download the file, now I think i need a compiler (or something) I can't make a binary out of it. what packages do i need to download from the repository.


Also maybe i'm asking too much can't you put the logserial ( i like the daemon mode) program into the repos so that i'll just have to download it thru synaptic (much easier on my part selfish). :twisted:

After a quick look I don't see anyone packaging logserial. To install compilers you can do:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install gcc make


That should be all the packages you need to compile log serial. Then you'd /probably/ do something like:

Code:
tar zxvf logserial-1.0.0.tar.gz
cd logserial-1.0.0
./configure
make
make install


I don't know what the version is, so substitute that number for 1.0.0 or whatever the file name is. The above is how most applications are compiled, but I'm just guessing that's how logserial is done. It's README should have specifics.

To save you some pain, I compiled a version and tar.gz'd it up for you...
