    Fedora Update Notification
    2019-08-19 02:28:49.021416
    Name        : mgetty
    Product     : Fedora 29
    Version     : 1.2.1
    Release     : 6.fc29
    URL         : http://mgetty.greenie.net/
    Summary     : A getty replacement for use with data and fax modems
    Description :
    The mgetty package contains a "smart" getty which allows logins over a
    serial line (i.e., through a modem). If you're using a Class 2 or 2.0
    modem, mgetty can receive faxes. If you also need to send faxes,
    you'll need to install the sendfax program.
    If you'll be dialing in to your system using a modem, you should
    install the mgetty package. If you'd like to send faxes using mgetty
    and your modem, you'll need to install the mgetty-sendfax program. If
    you need a viewer for faxes, you'll also need to install the
    mgetty-viewfax package.
