Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66391
ISDN driver not loaded by boot script
Last modified: 2006-08-04 16:22:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
The script /etc/init.d/isdn does not load my ISDN drivers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
From RedHat 7.3, no version number in the script.
Configure an AVM Fritz Card PCI Version 2 with the Internet Configuration
Wizard. Activate the device and test the Connection. Then reboot Linux and
check the modules with lsmod. There are no ISDN drivers. Run "/etc/init.d/isdn
start" and you can see no mess about success or failure. Check again the
modules. there are no ISDN drivers.
The file content of /etc/sysconfig/isdncard is:
NAME="AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)"
The script /etc/init.d/isdn thinks that this is an ISDN card:
# check PCMCIA
if [ "$RESOURCES" = "NONE" ] ; then
I commented these lines out and now my ISDN drivers are correctly loaded. My
solution is quick dirty. PCMCIA users need another solution. Maybe it is a
better idea to modify the Internet Configuration Wizard to set the variable
RESOURCES to "" instead of NONE.
I did not register my product but I hope you will fix this bug in the next
version and send me a short feedback.
The isdn cript is correct, problem is that your isdn config file looks strange.
If your ISDN Card is AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2), the RESOURCES should have either
protocol=1 or protocol=2.
I cannot reproduce this problem with redhat-config-network-1.0.0-1 in 7.3 release.
Could you please try to setup your ISDN card again?
Yes I tested it again. The problem was still there. Then I removed the file
/etc/sysconfig/isdncard and added the card again with the network configuration
utility. It worked fine. It seems that the problem depends on wich ISDN Card I
selected before. I remeber that I accidently selected an PCMCIA Fritz Card and
corrected it later.
In addition I entered again the wrong parameter NONE manually into the file and
opened the network config utility. The I klicked on apply and the file
/etc/sysconfig/isdncard was not changed. Then I selected the protocol EDSS1 and
klicked on apply. Now the parameter in the file was changed to protocol=2.
I removed the isdn card, set the parameter in the file to NONE and added a new
ISDN Internet connection in the device tab. After a klick on apply the parameter
in the file was still NONE. I tried this many times but I was not able to
reproduce it again. I tried it 5 times but now the parameter is always
"protocol=2". That looks very strange.
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.
However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
