Description Neil Darlow 2000-01-02 19:22:37 UTC
The Serial Port probe prevents attached modems going off-hook at first
attempt.

This problem was noticed with diald where the first connect attempt after
boot would consistently fail. Subsequent connect attempts were ok.

The solution I adopted was to add the -s option to the kudzu commandline
in /etc/rc.d/init.d/kudzu.

Perhaps more work needs to be done to ensure that the UART is left in the
same state after the probe as it was before.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-03 16:22:59 UTC
Are you using the updated pppd & initscripts? There
was a double-dial problem with those...

Comment 2 Neil Darlow 2000-01-04 10:03:59 UTC
The packages in use are:

  initscripts-4.70-1
  ppp-2.3.10-3

I check for updates weekly and install as appropriate.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-04 19:42:59 UTC
What sorts of modems?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-04 19:43:59 UTC
(and what are they detected as, if anything, in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf?)
