Description Joachim Frieben 2001-08-26 10:33:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
The modem line in the wvdial.conf file generated by redhat-config-network-
0.7.3-1 for my particular setup is: 'Modem = ttyS4'. The syntax is clearly 
wrong, and consequently wvdial complains about not being able to open 
device 'ttyS4'. After adding the '/dev' prefix to the device descriptor 
yielding 'Modem = /dev/ttyS4', everything works as expected. By the way, 
with the introduction of 'redhat-config-network' there is no generic user 
dialer anymore, and one has to login as root to dial in via wvdial (?).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.7.3-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type wvdial <isp-name>
	

Actual Results:  wvdial complains that it cannot open device 'ttyS4'

Expected Results:  wvdial dials in

Additional info:

none

It's fixed in redhat-config-network-0.7.8-1. You will find it in next rawhide 
release.
