Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50672
First page of the modem dial-up configuration doesn't make any sense
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
The first page of the modem dial-up configuration Asks for a "device name".
Is this supposed to be /dev/ttyS0? Modem0 as indicated in the Advanced
tab? What is Modem0 anyway? Should it be ppp0? I named my device
"mindspring", but don't know if that is causing problems or not. It seems
to be okay, and the wvdial configuration created works okay.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Modem type of configuration
2. Try to figure out what "Device Name" means
Confusion, dillusionment, and pain.
Oh, something like "Connection Name"?
A clarification -- this is neat's Add->Modem only, as internet-druid has a
UI issues are being worked on.
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
