Description Hermann Schichl 2001-02-25 15:37:03 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.23 i686)

after loading the irda modules, first a warning is issued:
  Warning: /lib/modules/2.4.0-0.99.23/kernel/net/irda/irda.o symbol for
irda_debug not found
then detection of the Siemens S35i with switched on IR (checked with 2
mobile phones) does not work. It is not reported in
Furthermore, as expected, attaching the modem does not work,...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load modules (follow the Infrared-HOWTO)
2. switch on IR on Siemens S35i put the sensors near each other
3. cat /proc/net/irda/discovery

Expected Results:  IrLMP should have detected the Siemens S35i within at
most one
minute. Afterwards cat /proc/net/irda/discovery should have shown
the detected mobile phone.

It neither works with 2.4.0-0.99.11 nor with 2.4.0-0.99.23.
It had worked w/o problems with 2.2.16 from RedHat 7.0.

System is a Asus L8400C laptop. At the end a complete dmesg
dump is included.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-26 05:16:10 EST
Can you try with the Wolverine kernel (2.4.1-0.1.9), this kernel has several
IrDA related bugfixes.
