Description of problem:
When I try to set up a modem connection, probing for modems hangs. I 
presume that this is related to my hardware; I have a Sony Vaio 
laptop which has a winmodem (unsupported by Fedora, but supported 
with the right Conexant driver), and a hardware modem in a PCMCIA 
Xircom Ethernet/modem combo card. "cardctl ident" says:

Socket 0:
  product info: "Xircom", "CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56", 
"CEM56", "1.00"
  manfid: 0x0105, 0x110a
  function: 2 (serial)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to make a new dialup network connection
2. When redhat-config-network probes for modems, it hangs

r-c-network probes through kudzu...

what does:
# kudzu -c MODEM -p

Ah, that's the problem. It produces the following (note the segfault 
at the end):

reassigning to kudzu
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-28 14:07:17 EDT
Apologies for the lack of response. Does this persist under FC3?

Can you get a strace of 'kudzu -p -c modem'?
Comment 5 Reuben Thomas 2005-04-28 16:10:36 EDT
Sorry, I no longer use Fedora (I now use Debian).
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-28 16:23:31 EDT
Closing for now; have not seen other reports of this and can't reproduce it here.
