Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-18 11:33:11 EDT
do we deliver the hisax_fcpcipnp module with our RHEL kernel?
Comment 4 Uwe Beck 2004-10-18 17:11:13 EDT
Support for isdn will be in RHEL4 (for more informations ask Lars
Herrmann). The kernel source contain the isdn modules but the isdn
support was forget to activate. So the isdn modules are not in the
kernel-2.6.8-1.528.2.10 rpm by default.
If you build an own kernel with isdn support the hisax_fcpcipnp module
is available and works correct.

# lsmod
hisax_fcpcipnp         14612  4
hisax_isac             10772  1 hisax_fcpcipnp
hisax                 465456  2 hisax_fcpcipnp,hisax_isac
crc_ccitt               2176  1 hisax
isdn                  129248  13 hisax
slhc                    5888  1 isdn

NAME='AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)'

I am online with RHEL4_BETA1 and the AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2) isdncard
at this time.

Same problem with system-config-network-1.3.22-1 (RHEL4_BETA2).
AVM Fritz!PCI v2.0 ISDN is missing in hardware choice.
kernel-2.6.9-1.648_EL now provides all isdn card kernel modules, so
the hisax_fcpcipnp module for the VM Fritz!PCI v2.0 ISDN card is

ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.648_EL/kernel/drivers/isdn/hisax

Comment 7 Uwe Beck 2005-05-14 07:47:27 EDT
Also open in RHEL4 final.
Comment 8 Uwe Beck 2005-06-14 16:38:42 EDT
You can only configure this card by hand in /etc/sysconfig/isdncard. This is also
open in RHEL4 U1.
Comment 9 Uwe Beck 2005-06-15 12:26:57 EDT
system-config-network in RHEL4 needs the card in choice and the correct 
parameters in /etc/sysconfig/isdncard are:

NAME='AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)'
Comment 10 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-08 12:02:49 EDT
Does this work also?

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/isdncard
NAME='AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)'
Comment 11 Uwe Beck 2005-09-08 14:53:07 EDT
In previous Red Hat version the "VENDOR_ID=1244" was also set for this card.
Yes, it works.
Comment 12 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-09 10:12:39 EDT
Does this version fix your problems?
Comment 13 Uwe Beck 2005-10-05 12:01:43 EDT
The fix is ok..
