Description of problem:
After updating to kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3, pci modem configured to
ttyS14 instead of ttyS4. That seems to confuse kudzu. 
/dev/modem is not being configure at boot, which in turn breaks
all dial-up configurations...

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot to kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3
2.check for /dev/modem

Actual Results:  is not there. Actual modem configure to /dev/ttyS14
instead of

Expected Results:  Modem at /dev/ttyS4. Kudzu (?) sets /dev/modem ->

Comment 2 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2005-01-06 05:21:32 UTC
OK. I did cold reboot (power cycle) and let kudzu unconfigure and
then reconfigure modem. That created /dev/modem. Then I  discovered that
"neat" uses /dev/ttySX device instead fo /dev/modem (kudzu buglet?).
After manually changing that, everything seems to be working again.
I still not sure this (change ttyS4 -> ttyS14) is a desired behavior,
so will live it open but at lower priority.

My modem is also now /dev/ttyS14.  I have an actiontec call waiting
modem (internal pci).  Kernel 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 still has this
behavior.  My modem has been /dev/ttyS14 since 2.6.10-1.737_FC3 and

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

Comment 6 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2005-07-15 21:28:19 UTC
