Description Uwe Beck 2003-05-25 20:02:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.08 [en] (X11; I; AIX 4.3)

Description of problem:
The configuration for the AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2) is correct in
/etc/sysconfig/isdncard if you create the card over the hardware menu.

NAME="AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)"

After configure a provider the parameters in /etc/sysconfig/isdncard are

NAME="AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)"

The RESOURCES="NONE" means, this card is a PCMCIA card -> see

# check PCMCIA
if [ "$RESOURCES" = "NONE" ] ; then

That is the reason, that the system can not load the modules for the AVM PCI
(Fritz!PCI v2) at boot time. So if-up can not activate the ippp interface.

You can correct the RESOURCES parameter by hand. If you use the
redhat-config-network program the next time for another task the file isdncard
is write back with RESOURCES="NONE".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)
2. Configure a provider
3. reboot
use redhat-config-network after you have correct the RESOURCE parameter by hand

Additional info:

Same problem with redhat-config-network in Red Hat 8.0.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-05-26 11:23:57 UTC
does the version on 
fix your problem?

Comment 2 Uwe Beck 2003-05-26 18:52:03 UTC
I install the new versions with 
rpm -Uhv redhat-config-network-1.2.7-1.noarch.rpm \
redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.7-1.noarch.rpm \

The same problem. I remove the ISDN-card and create the card new. The
parameter in /etc/sysconfig/isdncard are correct for the AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2)
at this time.
If you edit then the provider, e.g switch a compression parameter off and once
again on, then you must save the change before you can exit the program.
Now you can find RESOURCE="NONE" in the file /etc/sysconfig/isdncard.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-06-17 14:07:15 UTC
ok... 1.2.12 on:

you may have to downgrade rhpl

Comment 4 Uwe Beck 2003-06-26 20:08:00 UTC
I tested first the version redhat-config-network-1.2.12-1

The parameter for the isdn AVM PCI (Fritz!PCI v2) now correct in the file

But I see some other problems with the new version.

I create my provider by name "brickxmp".

ifcfg-brickxmp <-- ifcfg-ippp0 before the new program version

After the system was rebooted:

netstat -r
Kernel IP Routentabelle
Ziel            Router          Genmask         Flags   MSS Fenster irtt Iface     *        U         0 0          0 eth0     *        U         0 0          0 ippp0     *        U         0 0          0 eth1     *          U         0 0          0 eth1       *            U         0 0          0 lo
default         lex021         UG        0 0          0 eth0

The default route is set over eth0, but should be set over ippp0. Before this
version of redhat-config-network the ISDN-interface name was always ippp0.
This mistake comes from the loop in the if-up script and it was a random that
I have this mistake found because my providername is "brickxmp".

I see some effects if the name is ifcfg-brickxmp.

With /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-brickxmp the kisdndock do not go
in the o.k. status (color gray) on the KDE desktop.

service network stop
Interface eth0 herunterfahren:                             [  OK  ]
Interface eth1 herunterfahren:                             [  OK  ]
Loopback Interface herunterfahren:                         [  OK  ]

The ISDN-interface shutdown is missing.

ifdown ippp0
Verwendung: ifdown <Gerätename>


ippp0     Protokoll:Punkt-zu-Punkt Verbindung

          RX bytes:359 (359.0 b)  TX bytes:517 (517.0 b)

netstat -r

ifdown brickxmp
Ziel            Router          Genmask         Flags   MSS Fenster irtt Iface

Now you can see, why the default route is not set over ippp0.

service network start
Netzwerkparameter einstellen:                              [  OK  ]
Loopback Interface hochfahren:                             [  OK  ]
Interface brickxmp hochfahren:                             [  OK  ]
Interface eth0 hochfahren:                                 [  OK  ]
Interface eth1 hochfahren:                                 [  OK  ]

If I rename /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-brickxmp in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ippp0 all works correct.

I see the new version redhat-config-network-1.2.13-1 from yesterday.
Same problems I specified in redhat-config-network-1.2.12-1.

Comment 5 Frank Schmitt 2003-07-04 13:02:02 UTC
I see the same problems (with RH 9.0 release, I can't activate my (ISA, non-PNP) 
Fritz-Card, with 1.2.13-1 there's the ifcfg-providername (in my case 
ifcfg-rzonline) problem.

Now that I changed it to ifcfg-ippp0 everything seems to be fine.

Comment 6 Kris 2003-08-10 12:44:19 UTC
This bug still exists in the new beta "Severn".
Could you please fix that problem until the final release ??

Redhat has a lot of customers in Germany and if you want to get more, you should
pay more attention to the ISDN Standard in Germany.
Otherwise you won`t reach Suse...

Comment 7 Kris 2003-08-10 12:46:13 UTC
Ich habe noch etwas vergessen, nach jedem Neustart muà ich die Karte neu
aktivieren, das kann doch auch nicht richtig sein.

Ich nutze derzeit "Severn".

Wäre toll, wenn Du mir mal einen Rat geben könntest.
