Description of problem:
Fedora Core 2.6.11-1, 1369_FC4
At installation time the Dubury V90 modem, model K56E - external modem, is not
No entry /dev/modem is created.
At boot time the said modem is not picked up.
When I run Kudzu at a prompt it does not pick up the modem.
There is no reference to a modem in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.
Windows XP Pro has no problem with the modem on com1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't know what the version of Kudzu is.
Consistantly fails to find the modem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot machine - modem not reported as new hardware
2.Run Kudzu at the prompt - modem not reported as new hardware
When running Kudzu it simply does not report anything.
New hardware found.
The serial probe is disabled by default:
* Fri Dec 17 2004 Bill Nottingham <email@example.com> - 1.1.104-1
- don't probe serial bus by default in /usr/sbin/kudzu
as it causes issues with serial attached devices if they are currently in use
(serial consoles, etc.).
As kudzu is deprecated for hardware enumeration in FC 5 and later (apps should
use the HAL library) it is unlikely that this will be changed.
