User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13)

I have a modem on 11.2 KDE 64 bit:
03:06.0 Communication controller [0780]: Agere Systems Venus Modem (V90,
56KFlex) [11c1:0480]
Subsystem: Actiontec Electronics Inc Device [1668:0500]
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 0, IRQ 21
Memory at febffc00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
I/O ports at e800 [size=256]
I/O ports at e400 [size=256]
I/O ports at ec00 [size=8]
Capabilities: [f8] Power Management version 2
Kernel driver in use: serial

which works on /dev/ttyS4 in 11.1, 11.2, 11.3, but no longer works in
11.4 nor factory.

Neither wvdial nor wvdialconf ran as root can find or make use of the modem at
/dev/ttyS4:
wvdialconf:
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S1 S2 S3
ttyS4<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyS4<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS4<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S5 S6 S7

When I used the program, minicom, on ttyS4 in 11.4 and in factory, it could use
the modem, dial, and actually connected. But neither wvdial nor wvdialconf
could find it.

I tried a different modem:
03:06.0 Modem [0703]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4212 v.90 56k modem
[14e4:4212] (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [Generic])
Subsystem: Dell Device [1028:0001]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 21
Memory at febff000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
I/O ports at ec00 [size=16]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
Kernel driver in use: serial

with no luck on 11.2 nor 11.4 of Opensuse nor with minicom, but it
appears that may be a different issue with Broadcom modems.

11.2 & 11.3:
hwinfo --modem
45: Serial 00.0: 10200 Modem
[Created at modem.447]
Unique ID: 4gcD.KM1shMXflFC
Parent ID: GiVB.3fyvFV+mbWD
Hardware Class: modem
Model: "AT Modem"
Vendor: int 0x2000 "Unknown"
Device: int 0x0001 "AT Modem"
Device File: /dev/ttyS4
Device Files: /dev/ttyS4, /dev/char/4:68
Speed: 115.2 kbps
Init1: ATZ
Init2: AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Config Status: cfg=no, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
Attached to: #36 (Serial controller)

11:4:
hwinfo --modem
45: Serial 00.0: 10200 Modem
[Created at modem.447]
Unique ID: 4gcD.KM1shMXflFC
Parent ID: GiVB.3fyvFV+mbWD
Hardware Class: modem
Model: "AT Modem"
Vendor: int 0x2000 "Unknown"
Device: int 0x0001 "AT Modem"
Device File: /dev/ttyS4
Speed: 115.2 kbps
Init1: ATZ
Init2: AT Q0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Config Status: cfg=no, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
Attached to: #36 (Serial controller)

Notice the line which isn't in 11.4:
Device Files: /dev/ttyS4, /dev/char/4:68

When using 11.4 32 bit & factory live CD, the differences from 11.4 above:
49: Serial 00.0: 10200 Modem
Config Status: cfg=new,

I checked and there is a device at /dev/char/4:68 on each one.
I don't know want to make of it, though, other than there is finally a
difference discovered.


Reproducible: Always
