Programs like rp3 and kppp are unable to locate my pcmcia modem card. I
get messages like
`Sorry, modem not responding', even though the modem is physically
there. This is w/RH6.1.
It did work with a previous version -- RH5.1. Any laptop users seen
this before? My pcmcia
ether card is configured correctly however.
My own guess as to reason to this problem is IRQ conflict. Typically the
BIOS setting for
ttyS0 is 4. However since that is the same IRQ for ttyS1, the OS resets
it at boot time to another
available one -- in my case-- to IRQ 11. The `setserial' command gives
me the new IRQ, not
the original BIOS setting. There is no way to check which IRQ programs
like rp3 and kppp are
seeing, so I am not sure if this conflict is what is getting in the way
of finding the modem.
Any suggestions towards thie original problem or towards the IRQ
conflict which may or may
not be causing this problem is appreciated.
