Description Mattias Dahlberg 2002-07-10 09:04:59 UTC
Description of problem:
redhat-config-network (or internet-druid if you will) isn't able to detect my 
external USRobotics 56K faxmodem. A very standard model, as you know. It's 
connected to ttyS0 and I can see the lights flashing while the program is 
looking for modems. But then it returns saying it was unable to find one. (If I 
later choose /dev/ttyS0 manually everything works fine.)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect an external modem to ttyS0 (in my case a USR 56K faxmodem)
2. Use redhat-config-network
3. Add a dial-up connection

Btw, what is the preferred dialer in Limbo? rp3 seems to be gone and when I try 
to "activate" the ppp0 connection in redhat-config-network nothing happens. I 
installed kppp and that worked, though.

Shows up fine in redhat-config-network-1.1.8-1

I just tried (null) - still the same problem. And this has status CLOSED. Hmm...
