Description

while my provider has GPRS and as documented in manual GPRS ttySAC0 has to response to Chat scripts , it does not return anything , people at IRC suggest that this is wrong device to use GPRS but its highly document with same device name on Wiki , nobody at support list has any answer for this so i suspend a bug

Well. Do you run qpe? In that case some of the modem output will be catched by this process and you need to kill it before you can access the modem yourself. Other explanations include that you need to power on the device...

Enabling the multiplexer for Qtopia is on the list of things to do.

well , device is on for sure , hehe ;))

by 'in on the list to do' you mean its possible for users to do it , or you , developers had to do it ? is this possible to use gsm0710muxd ?

i guess this is no longer a bug report bug feature request , if you have time please answer my question with some detail so i could be able to update Wiki .

Before OM team port Qtopia multiplexer, you can use gsm0710muxd. Detailed instruction can be found here:

I only use the GPRS data. I am not using my phone for voice at the moment. How can I workaround this issue by preventing qpe from starting up at boot?

You can disable qpe in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia (comment line which starts qpe), but I'm not sure if that's what you want to do. As far as I'm aware qpe is responsible for more than just GSM.

I would recommend you to install gsm0710muxd and modify your /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia file. That way all Qtopia services will work fine, and you can enjoy your GPRS connection.
Everything is described in the link above.
