Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 587976
Xastir failed to run after latest updates
Last modified: 2010-05-11 20:13:34 EDT
Description of problem:
After update on 5/1/2010, Xastir (a fully functioning package before this update), failed to run. Main Gui came up, but got stuck on loading symbols (indicator at bottom of screen).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just start xastir, failure even after reboot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install latest updates on 5/1/2010
2. run xastir
GUI starts, last message at bottom of GUI is loading symbols
Failure to run
This was a fully functioning xastir station on Fedora 12 before updates and reboot requested after updates
Found the issue. Xastir is using /dev/ttyC0, a cyclades 8 serial port card and this device is closed by modem-manager.
modem-manager: (ttyC0) closing serial device...
Card is being recognized properly from /var/log/messages:
Cyclades driver 2.6 (built Apr 5 2010 16:17:00)
cyclades 0000:01:0a.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19
cyclades 0000:01:0a.0: Cyclom-Y/PCI #1 found: 8 channels starting from port 0
/dev/ttyS0 is behaving correctly
This is being handled by bug #589376
