From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: If using gnome's modemlights_applet2 with isdn, modemlights_applet2 requires read-access to /dev/isdninfo to display the network status/throughput etc. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): all How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Use a gnome-desktop on a system connected to the internet via isdn and autodialing. Install gnome's modemlight_applet2 to a gnome-panel. Dial out via isdn. modemlight_applet2 should display the connection status. Actual Results: Modemlights_applet doesn't display the isdn-connection status. Expected Results: Modemlights_applet2 should display the isdn-connection status. Additional info: A rough work-around to this issue is to chmod a+r /dev/isdninfo (This is what I currently do). A more sophisticated approach would be to apply setgid and group tricks to modemlights_applet and /dev/isdninfo.

'Red Hat Raw Hide' refers to the development tree for Red Hat Linux. Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Red Hat apologizes that these issues were not resolved in a more timely manner. However, the issues listed in these bugs are in packages that are no longer shipped in a current Fedora Core release. Hence, we are closing these bugs CANTFIX.
