Description John F. Kohler 2005-06-26 00:03:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4 Description of problem: When I try to configure a modem, the system does not detect the pcmcia usr 56k modem at the com port tty/S3 as was done with fc3. In fact, no dialog box comes up showing a found modem at all. The laptop, a Dell inspiron 4150 has a winmodem built in and my pcmcia card. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_fc48i686 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Click on red hat and drag down to system settings->network 2.click on network wizard, and in dialog box, choose "new" 3.click on modem. (note no attempt to locate modem port tty/S3 as was done on fc3) 4. see dialog box for isp, phone number, and password 5 enter info and click done. Actual Results: When you click "activate" error message comes up ppp0 connection failed, errot 2 Expected Results: A good modem connection should have been established, dialing, answer, and connection with id/password pair and ready for activation of browser Additional info: This was an issue for me on the same laptop under Red Hat Linux 9, but I do not know if the cause is the same. I have returned to fc3 and the modem, software and connection work perfectly. P.S. under fc4 I attempted to activate "minicom -s" and successfully dialed out with it.
Comment 1 John F. Kohler 2005-06-26 00:07:03 UTC
There is a built-in "winmodem" with this laptop, on which I have abandoned hope. Before the 56k pcmcia modem I had a 28k modem which configured perfectly under Red Hat 8 and 9 and early versions of fedora, except as noted above.
