Description of problem:
2.4.18-10 breaks the connection to mobile phone (Nokia 5110)
A modem connectted to the port, however, is working OK
I am using the mygnokii software
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gnokii --identify
(on both ttyS0, ttyS0 as well as ttyS4 and ttyS5 on add-in card)
Actual Results: The gnokii program just hangs
No connection to the phone is possible with any command
This happpens on RH 7.2 as well as a fresh upgrade to RH 7.3
Expected Results: Immediate display of phone information
I thought the problem was due to a new mainboard on another server, but as I
just upgraded the kernel in my RedHat 7.2 on the old server and experienced the
same thing. I realized, that it is a kernel problem. Falling back and reloading
the old kernel made the phone connection reappear.
My business depends on the connection working!
2.4.9-31 (i586) on old server and 2.4.9-34 (i686) on new server is working.
'ttyS0, ttyS0' should
be 'ttyS0, ttyS1'
