Angry wvdialconf refusing to detect my modem


I am using Fedora Core 6.0. I have an Reliance PPP Internet connection. I have both the regular(without XEN) kernel and the one with XEN.
When i boot my PC with XEN kernel, wvdialconf refuses to detect serial ports, in turn my Modem connected to COM1. But it works properly when i boot my PC without XEN kernel.

Please any body help me to get rid off this problem. Its annoying me a lot as i have to boot without XEN to access internet.

I don't think your problem is with how wvdial is configured. I think that your problem is with how COM1 is configured in Xen. Here is an explanation of how to configure COM1 in Xen when Xen does not do so automagically:



In order to configure Xen serial console output, it is necessary to add a boot option to your GRUB config; e.g. replace the previous example kernel line with:

kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 com1=115200,8n1

This configures Xen to output on COM1 at 115,200 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity. Modify these parameters for your environment.
