Description of problem:
redhat-config-network detects my modem at "/dev/eth". It's actually at /dev/ttyS1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Haven't tried. (Although, the pathname "/dev/eth" is giving me a strange sense
of deja vu; I'm wondering if I experienced this in the past and then forgot
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-network, with no PPP connections configured (and no modem
configured either, *I think*).
2. Let it autodetect the modem.
3. See what r-c-n detected as the device name for the modem...
Actual Results: /dev/eth
Expected Results: /dev/ttyS1
[root@i5000e root]# ls -l /dev/eth*
ls: /dev/eth*: No such file or directory
I'm using a D-Link combo Ethernet/modem card. There is also one serial port
inside this laptop (Dell Inspiron 5000e), but no built-in Ethernet or modem.
could you please give me the output of
$ /usr/sbin/kudzu -p -c MODEM
Created attachment 92673 [details]
output of /usr/sbin/kudzu -p -c MODEM
Note that kudzu on my system is now 1.1.8-1. It was something older when I
experienced this bug. I would see if I can reproduce this bug, except that bug
98251 is getting in the way right now...
