Wrong component... refiling.

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2002-10-05 10:55:29 UTC

first beta of erratum is available at:

Most of the bugs reported have been removed, but as in every software change,
there could be new bugs introduced.

Please report bugs against this with explicitly stating the 1.0.1 version... Thx
and please test.

I have upgraded my computer to redhat 8.0.
Stil the problem with the isdn card excists.
I have tryed to instal redhat-config-network-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm, but i get an 
error cause of dependencies
I tryed rpm -Uvh *.rpm
The version in redhat 8.0 of the config file is 1.1.20-1.

please don't use redhat-config-network-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm for 8.0. It's built
for RHL 7.3.

Please try following steps:
 - start redhat-config-network
 - remove your isdn card
 - save settings and exit
 - remove the file /etc/sysconfig/isdncard
 - start redhat-config-network again
 - add your ISDN card manually from the list, if it's not detected
 - add your provider
 - save settings
 - active ippp0 should work now

I think it's something wrong in your old isdncard config-file.

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2002-12-23 13:10:45 UTC
i have tryed removing the card from redhat-config-nertwork, save and exit. 
Deleted the file isdncard and did restart reconfigure and still it does not 
Redhat config network does not detect the right isdncard, it comes with NETJET 
I have tryed all cards in redhat-config-network with irq 5. By most off them i 
can not enter the memorylocation and/or the i/o location.
Some cards come automaticly with irq 5 but most of them come with the wrong io 
memory -- the find 300 and that is the memeory of the ethernetcard.
Everytime i start windows 98 my teles isdncard is working properly and 
configurated on irq 5 mem E8007000 io e400.

If this is notabug what is it then, because it is not a hardware problem 
because in windows 98 its working fine. So there must be something wrong with 
the recognition from the hardware and thats in my view a bug...

Q: how can i see which irq is allocated for my isdn card ?

Comment 8 Need Real Name 2002-12-30 23:17:06 UTC
With testing i discoverd that in /proc/pci the card is on irq3, but irq 3 is 
used by my networkcard. When i try to activated the card i see a message 
in  /var/log/messages that there is no respons on irq 3. 
So the card is by startup initialised on the wrong irq. 

In knoppix the card was started succesfully on irq 3 (my networkcard was not 
seen at all - and did not work) The Teles card is NOT recognized as a TELES PCI 
card but as an TIGER JET NETWORKCARD. I don't no why, but i think this is 

Q: Can i force the card to go to irq 5 ???

Comment 9 Ngo Than 2003-01-03 11:20:38 UTC
As i know there are some Teles ISDN PCI Cards, which are identified as NETJET.
I have this card in my machine. And it works fine.

If redhat-config-network sees this card as NETJET, please use it.

You cannot force the card to have irq 5, The driver does not allow it.

And if it still does not work for you, perhaps try !W6692 based PCI cards" from
the list.
