External modem disappears on first reboot
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:41:10 EDT
Description of problem: Install works OK including external US
Robotics 56k Sportster Faxmodem. After initial reboot, kudzu tells me
"Removed Hardware" - "USR|2082 US Robotics 56K FAX EXT" Modem is
there and powered on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.36
Hardware Discovery Utility
How reproducible: every time (4 separate installs to date)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Perform basic install (Personal Desktop is enough). Problem is seen
on first reboot.
Additional info: Modem is on Com1 on an MSI motherboard. Works OK
with Win 2k. Works OK with Redhat Linux 9 (Hardware Discovery Utility
I also get this problem:
I installed Fedora Core 2 test3 on my machine, it picked up the modem
during install then during the reboot Removes the modem configuration.
I have a different brand external modem, it was also plugged in and
switched on during the whole process.
Modem is also on Com1, on an ASUS P4S533-MX motherboard.
This worked fine with RedHat 9 and still works ok with Win2k Pro.
Does this persist on FC3 and later?
Closing, no response.
