Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 480837
Enable CONFIG_CAPI_EICON and all CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS* in kernel
Last modified: 2009-05-25 17:09:57 EDT
Description of problem:
There are only less active ISDN card controllers supported fine with Linux
and even less supported with HylaFax which is CAPI incompatible. Yes, there
is capi4hylafax, but that software is unmaintained for years now as well.
So in the past there was the active AVM B1 ISDN card which has worked very
well. Unluckily this card is 5V only and can't be used in modern or at least
recent server hardware, which usually only has PCI-X (3.3V only) or PCIe
(3.3V or 12V).
The only reasonable alternative seems to be Dialogic Diva (former Eicon);
so please enable CONFIG_CAPI_EICON and all CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS* options in the
Fedora kernel (should be CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS, CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_MAINT,
CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_USERIDI, CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_DIVACAPI, CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_HSI,
CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_BRIPCI, CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_PRIPCI, CONFIG_ISDN_DIVAS_ANALOG)
as of my knowledge. The Dialog Diva cards are available as PCI-X and as well
as PCIe - very future oriented, AVM sales itself was stating, that they will
not provide something else except AVM B1 and if we don't like it, we simply
shall look for another product...
Chuck Ebbert has enabled AFAIK CONFIG_CAPI_EICON on Fedora 10 a few hours
ago, but not on Rawhide. And the DIVAS modules aren't built as well on a
Fedora system as it seems - at least on my x86_64 locally here. The Dialogic
Diva (former Eicon) cards are known to work on ix86 and x86_64 - for ppc and
so on I can't tell you that for sure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is now in Fedora 11 but somehow still not in the current F10 kernel.
Now in F10, F11 and rawhide (F12)
I'll just close this bug now.
kernel-184.108.40.206-170.2.68.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
kernel-220.127.116.11-170.2.68.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
