centos 4.1: kppp modem detection fails
I'm using CentOS 4.1 that was upgraded from 4.0.
Since this distro is equivalent to RHEL, I'm posting
my issue here.
Basically, as KPPP tries to detect the installed modem,
my keyboard's Scrool and Caps lock lights are blinking
and my system is frozen. This forces me to hard reboot
As far as the modem is concerned, it's the internal PCI
modem with an Intel 536EP chipset, and the correct
driver has been successfully installed.
I have another system with the same driver, modem, and
distro in very nice working condition.
Obviously, the only difference between the two systems
is in the system board.
The board that's giving me the trouble is AsRock P4AL-800.
Previously, I've had some issue with this board with the
same distro in the up2date process. Now that I reinstalled
this CentOS distro again, that up2date issue has gone cleanly.
However, this new KPPP issue has come up where there was
none like this issue in the past in the same system.
Is this my installation failure or the board's peculiarly acting
Anyone's comment would be very much appreciated.
