Globetrotter HSUPA Modem not recognized
Last modified: 2009-12-18 02:38:28 EST
Description of problem:
The built in GSM-modem in Acer Aspire One 150 is not recognized in NetworkManager.
I can configure a "Moble Broadband connection" but there is no "connect"-option
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a Mobile Broadband connection in NetworkManager
There is no way to use the connection
There should be some sort of "Connect"-button
Probably related to bz#446605

Same as this bug (with patch):
I can confirm that this patch does indeed work. The modem is recognised after applying the below patch

Over to hal-info since that's what needs the patch.
*** Bug 479424 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I consider the patch above to work with Ubuntu, not Fedora. See Bug 479424 for working patch.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
