Description of problem:
active CAPI-driven ISDN cards like AVM B1 aren't supported by initscript of isdn4k-utils

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put AVM B1 ISDN controller into system
2. Apply first workaound https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=167291
3. Apply second workaound https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=167295
4. Try to use /etc/rc.d/init.d/isdn to execute the proper steps required for full function like:

# modprobe capidrv
# modprobe capi
# /sbin/avmcapictrl load /etc/firmware/isdn/b1.t4 1
Loading Bootcode /etc/firmware/isdn/b1.t4 ... done


Actual Results:  Not supported, FIRMWARE of /etc/sysconfig/isdn doesn't help, capi modules aren't loaded, too.

Expected Results:  Support of such card

Additional info:


1) disable isdn initscript
# chkconfig isdn off

2) use /etc/rc.modules to load modules and firmware:
# cat <<END >>/etc/rc.modules
# Enable AVM B1 CAPI and Firmware
modprobe capidrv && modprobe capi && while [ ! -e /dev/capi20 ]; do sleep 1; done && /sbin/avmcapictrl load /etc/firmware/isdn/b1.t4 1

# chmod 755 /etc/rc.modules

RHEL3/4 only support the passiv ISDN cards. Active ISDN cards are not supported
yet. It should be supported in next coming RHEL5

Many thanks for your report.
