libcapi20 incompatible with device naming in /dev
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
capiinfo reports that no capi driver is installed contrary to
what is in the system.
The problem is related to changes in /dev/capi* nodes naming
in kernel (udev???) which where not introduced to libcapi20.
The following whould be changed:
/dev/capi20 -> /dev/capi
/dev/capi20.* - remove
/dev/capi/%n -> /dev/capi%n (not sure about it, makes capifs
Now, these are my guesses after analyzing some code in isdn4k-utils
and actual /dev/capi* nodes created by udev-0.44 (0.39 does not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install isdn card and capi driver for it
2. run capiinfo
3. no such node returned due to wrong /dev/capi20 major and minor
capi does not work
This should be really coordinated between kernel, udev and
The above are my guesses and I may be wrong about what's correct
and what's not.
isdn4k-utils in rpm are awfully old (over a year).
it's a problem a kernel and udev. kernel isdn driver should provide
the info to udev for creating devices by loading of isdn module.
I now added a workaround in isdn4k-utils, which creates devices if it
does not exist. we already have similar bug report on kernel.
i will build isdn4k-utils-3.2-19, which has the current isdn4k-utils
snapshot from today, in rawhide today. Many thanks for your report.
This bug is a duplicate of bug 139321.
The problem is solved for isdn4k-utils, but it is still open for
