Wiki Instructions:

Finally got this GPRS sort of working :-)

I put together a shell script of the steps I've taken to get this far. A
lot of issues I had involved installing from various repositories. I
basically add the angstrom repository for gsm0710muxd and then remove it
again for all the rest.

Now I can do a "gprson" and "gprsoff" and I get a connection but the
"service" GUI does not open and just pops up an error screen and states
that it's writing a log file to /home/root/Services.log but it does not
do that at all. I can't see an error message on logread either.

I might look into it but I'm just happy to have an IP address and I'll
rig up a desktop file for "gprson" and "gprsoff"

Thanks for all your pointers along the way
