Nokia E90 + Ubuntu + 3G with data cable

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

After succeeding with Dapper to kick my GPRS connection alive with my 9300/E90 via BT 2yrs ago, I haven’t had much joy in configuring BT+E90+3G on Edgy, Feisty, Hardy, and so on. A friend has written a good howto on connecting up via data cable (if you want an english translation, just poke him), so this afternoon I decided to try it.

My E90 is running v210.34.75. The difference is that using the AT+CGDCONT command returns an ERROR. Another howto states that the user has to set the default access point on the phone, and dial out without the CGDCONT – this worked for me. So here is the final deal:

Set up the default AP on your E90

Tools / Settings / Connection / Packet data / Access point
Add internet.vodafone.net (3G) or gprs.vodafone.net (plain old GPRS) depending on what you want to use.

Do an lsusb do check the USB vendor/product ID:

#lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0421:04cf Nokia Mobile Phones
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 08ff:2580 AuthenTec, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:171d Hewlett-Packard Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Load the cdc_acm and the usbserial module with parameters:

# modprobe cdc_acm
# modprobe usbserial vendor=0×0421 product=0×04cf

(This will probably screw your other modules if you try to use other USB-serial converters, but decide what you want to use… 🙂 )

Connect up your E90 in PC Suite mode.

(I wanted to use the default pon/poff config, but I finally stuck with copy-pasting the wvdial conf).

Insert these into your wvdial.conf

[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Phone = *99#
Idle Seconds = 300
Password = vodafone
Modem Type = USB Modem
Stupid Mode = 1
Compuserve = 0
Baud = 460800
Auto DNS = 1
Dial Command = ATDT
Ask Password = 0
ISDN = 0
Username = vodafone

Start up wvdial:

Say hi to Mr. Pkerese for writing the original howto.

Logging into SQL with apache2 or nginx

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

I’ve been playing around this weekend with my webservers because some PHP coders want to see the accesslog of a few virtualhosts in SQL. In different databases, to be on the fun side. Apache2 has two options:

  • mod_log_sql does not support logging into different database servers per virtualhost, and also sports a static table layout, which is not necessarily nice. Could be used in other configs, but *trash*.
  • mod_log_mysql seems to be nice on the first spot, but then it gets out that one has to rebuild the Apache binaries with the modified mod_log_config the project provides. Hell wants an if-you-want-an-uprade-rebuild-everything nightmare, even in chroots. *trash*
  • Nginx has a patchset which allows the server to log into syslog, then in turn into syslog-ng, but since it has no configuration options – hardcoded syslog facility, no per-vhost config -, it seems promising, but *trash*

Now I seem to end up in using a script which parses the accesslog with tail -f and inserts the entries into SQL. Fuck what?
