Ok, do you mean that wvdial works as root, but not as user? Then it is a questions of the permissions on the device file /dev/ttyACM0. Perhaps you will need to make wvdial suid or call it using sudo.


- From my notes, in "/etc/permissions.local" I did:

/usr/bin/wvdial root.dialout 4750

Now I also added that line

I think that was all I needed. No, I added my user to group dialout, too.

My user was already added to the three groups: dialout, video, users

Please copy here the exact error that a wvdial session prints.

Did a reboot, but still this doesn't work running the dialup command as normal user:

~> wvdial --config wvdialice.conf
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56 (abuild@balli)
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyACM0: Device or resource busy
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyACM0: Device or resource busy
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyACM0: Device or resource busy

I can add that there also may be some bug related to the CDMA USB modem driver, because after disconnecting the modem and system restart, the /dev/ttyACM0 is disappeared and the driver has to be reinstalled (as root) and with output as follows:


RDEVCHG Linux Version : 1.0
Please, Wait!
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 16d8:680a
Success SwitchMode.
*** stack smashing detected ***: ./RDEVCHG terminated

My provider's support has told me that the Gnome PPP launcher does work with this modem on Ubuntu, and this is also my main purpose on openSUSE.
