Description Daniel Qarras 2008-10-04 08:32:00 EDT
Description of problem:
With F9 IrDA connections with Nokia 6021 used to work nicely but with F10Beta no more. Not quite sure is this problem in gnokii or kernel or elsewhere but at least it is reproducible.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start irda service, adjust needed IrDA connection parameters
2. Run "gnokii --identify"
3. See failure/success
Actual results:
gnokii can't create connection.

Expected results:
gnokii identifies the phone.

Additional info:
I'm following this procedure on both F9/F10Beta and F9 is ok, F10Beta fails.

service irda start
echo 115200 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate
echo 2000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_data_size
echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/min_tx_turn_time
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window

root@localhost:~# cat /etc/gnokiirc
port = /dev/ircomm0
model = AT
initlength = default
connection = serial

debug = on

I'll attach some logs from gnokii both from F9/F10Beta.

Please let me know if more information is needed.

And FWIW, I also get the same results with the native 6021 (ie 6510) gnokii driver.
Comment 6 Daniel Qarras 2008-10-27 15:16:40 EDT
Still problem with these versions:

Comment 7 Daniel Qarras 2008-11-03 09:22:50 EST
I will lose the hardware in a week or so I'm not able to test/debug after that.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 22:32:42 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Actually this is not a gnokii problem, irdadump does not show anything coming back from the phone. On F9 it worked. Might be a kernel problem, I'll see if I can set up F9 for testing at some point.
Comment 10 Daniel Qarras 2009-01-04 09:24:39 EST
This seems to be a Fedora kernel issue, I compiled 2.6.2{4,6,8} from kernel.org on F10 and IrDA worked all ok with all them, so only with F10 kernels I'm seeing IrDA connections to fail.
Comment 11 Daniel Qarras 2009-04-02 18:23:41 EDT
This is fixed in F11 Beta. Closing.
