Description of problem:
When configuring a new modem connection, a warning dialog incorrectly claims "No
modem was found on your system", even though /etc/sysconfig/hwconf correctly
shows the USB modem, and kernel module acm is loaded, and minicom is able to
find and talk to the modem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0.Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop with Zoom 2986L USB modem plugged in and turnd on
before boot. Kudzu recognizes modem, and Configures it.
1.RedHat > System Settings > Network
2.New > Modem connection
Actual Results: A warning dialog box appears, titled redhat-config-network,
with message "No modem was found on your system".
Expected Results: USB modem should be found, and device /dev/input/ttyACM0
should be preselected.
Similar to bug 67275 (2002-06-21): one year, two major OS revisions, no progress.
Workaround: ignore the warning, select /dev/input/ttyACM0 as device.
