Description of problem:
When I start a ISDN connection. I press activate, then the internet
connection goes up. But I can't deactivate this connection by pressing
deactive, because the status doesn't change.
So I must log in as a root user and enter then : "isdnctrl hangup ippp0"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Activate connection
3. Cannot deactivate connection
Actual Results: Internet connection goes up, but the status doesn't
change to active.
Expected Results: Status change to active to deactivate the connection
please try 1.3.13 from rawhide
A stupid question, where can I find redhat-config-network-1.3.13?
It is not in the testing area.
sorry... and it is compiled with python-2.3 (so, you would have to
Bug 112364 and bug 112649 are dupes of this one.
Heini, did it work for you?

isdn inactive patch
Attached patch seems to fix the problem for me (Fedora Core 1). Instead of
running isdnctrl or userisdnctl, check for ipppd pid file, just like pppd for
My machine with this problem is remote and the local user not
knowledgeable. I tried Harald's suggestion to install
redhat-config-network-1.3.13 (and tui). Now the user can't establish
any isdn connection anymore. I'm locked out. The error message was
relayed to me on the phone, the gist being
ifup: command not found.
log in as root and start
then /sbin should be in the $PATH

I want to try the comment at #3 with redhat-config-network-1.3.13, but
a question of mine, how do i re-compile it for fedora core 1. Or is
there a compiled file.
No, that's not it. The message is like this:
ppp4: /sbin/ifup MSN; /usr/sbin/userisdnctl dial ippp4: No such file
Both commands issued in a shell seperately work OK. Seems they are
treated by the python script as one command. Mixup of system and exec?
Don't bother, it doesn't work (yet). In any case, have a look at the
man page of rpmbuild.
found the bug in CVS... will provide a bugfix soon! thx!
As a work-around I use "gnome modemlight applet" with the following
Are there any new problems that delay the fix?
I have a problem that's related to this bug I think. While I can
connect to my ISP fine, the connection status never changes to Active.
This wouldn't be so bad if my ISP didn't kick me off every 2 hours
because I have no way of knowing when this has happened.

Fixes the bug and uses (IMHO) a more appropriate program to detect if the link
Simon, thanks for your patch.
Now it's working fine.
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
Closing per lack of response to previous comment. Note that FC1 and FC2 are no
longer supported even by Fedora Legacy. If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4,
please assign to that version and Fedora Legacy. If it still occurs on FC5 or
FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version.
