Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52994
kisdndock - ifup ippp0
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:47 EDT
Description of Problem:
Isdn is now really getting better! My Teles 16.3C ISA-PnP card is now
detected and activated, and with redhat-config-network I can set up ippp0.
kisdndock looks very nice too.
When running redhat-config-network I don't check "activate on boot" in the
ISDN dialup configuration. (Now mostly because I don't use ISDN at all -
but ADSL). I then have to do a manually "ifup ippp0" before kisdndock is
started. I think it would be nice if kisdndock could do a "ifup ippp0" if
ippp0 was not up?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure ISDN-card and device with redhat-config-network.
2. In ISDN dialup configuration: NOT check "activate on boot"
3. After boot: running kisdndock
Running kisdndock now just gives me a white "square", not green.
I have to manually do a "ifup ippp0" _before_ running kisdndock.
ippp0 activated from kisdndock if not already active.
Fixed in 2.2-6
Don't work here! kdenetwork-2.2-6 from rawhide. Still the same "white
square", have to do manually "/sbin/ifup ippp0"
Worked in my test setup (simulated isdn cards)...
Than, please have a look - you have the proper equipment to try and reproduce
i cannot reproduce it. It works for me with ISA 16.3 PnP Teles.
Dou you install a new isdn4k-utils-3.1-46.
Teles 16.3C PnP (HisaX type=14)
It works for me if (and only if) ippp0 is up already.
I just downloaded kdenetwork-2.2-7 from enigma - works!
I have installed Enigma today, and I have to say that kisdndock (and
redhat-config-network) works very nice. The problem with isapnp is gone too.
I don't like that kisdndock is autostarted with KDE, because this doesn't make
much sense to me when I unchecked the "activate on boot" in "dialup
If I connect to my ISP and then quit kisdndock, the connection is still
active. This could be OK as you can kill your X without loosing the
connection, but I think some users may think that if they quit kisdndock the
connection will be taken down. I don't really know what is best...
if you don't want to start kisdndock at start KDE, just disable it in
control-center->Network->Kisdndock->Lauch kisdndock at KDE startup
