Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244970
ISDN service fails to start (blocking boot)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
Since my upgrade from Fedora Core 6 to Fedora 7, the ISDN startup script hangs
during boot (or when manually started by service isdn start). The problem seems
to relate to a failure to load the kernel module, but the boot sequence never
"gives up" on this, preventing boot. As a workaround, I have moved
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S09isdn to bu-S09isdn, so as to prevent loading of those
modules. Of course, this leaves ISDN unavailable. I will cut and paste the error
message in a separate post here, as "service isdn start" run a second time
simply dies at "unloading ISDN modules" without giving more detailed
information. The card is a Fritz! PCI v2.0 ISDN.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer
Error is generated, followed by [FAILED] message, followed by another series of
error messages. Boot hangs at this point.
Normal booting with ISDN modules available.
Here is the promised error log:
[nalbad80@studienpraefekt ~]$ sudo service isdn start
/etc/init.d/isdn: line 112: 3315 Killed modprobe $MODULE
$RESOURCES > /dev/null 2>&1
Loading ISDN modules [FAILED]

This is an attempt at getting you more information about the kernel oops.
I solved the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling the modem. Something went
funny in the upgrade process, apparently. At least for me, this issue is closed,
but perhaps needs to be checked for the future.
