Description Bob Demoret 2005-04-13 23:21:57 EDT
Description of problem:1)After inputting info in Network Device (modem
connection) I clicked on Activate and received "WARNING - red-hat network=  
"Error saving configuration.  {Error 2) No such file or directory:
//etc/sysconfig/network-scripts//ifcfg-io.rpmsave". I checked in /etc and found
the file but in flashing red box. I check the Fedora 1.0 DVD and it was the
same. File listed but in red box. I also checked an old Red-Hat Linux 8.0 CDROM
and it also was in red box. I never got modem working with RHL 8.0 either.
2) Also in trying to set up dial-up connection I got message "Cannot activate
network device hawk. /sbin/ifup: config for hawk not found.  Usage:ifup <device
name>" I opened the file but not sure how to input the required data.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Fedora Core 1.0

How reproducible:I have tried to setup dial-up network several times but result
always the same.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Tried network configuration wizard and also Network Configuration in KDE
2.Tried also in Gnome
Actual results:No modem connection. Always get same error message.

Expected results:You guessed it

Additional info:None

Firstly it would be quite usefull to have the modem driver which you're using or
the vendor name. I'm really not sure why there's a .rpmsave file, this file
should be activated. You can try comparing these two files - eg. file
with/without .rpmsave (What does it mean that the file is in "red flashing box"?) 

Morelikely than puting this to the bugzilla, try to google around a bit for user
experiences with your modem or give it a try with newer Fedora Core ..
