    isdnlog/isdnutils: /dev/isdnctrl: No such device

    A few days ago I upgraded my server at home from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS (server amd64). I did a fresh install. isdnlog worked perfectly under 9.10.

    A few informations:


    Code:
    $ uname -a
    Linux droener 2.6.32-21-server #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 09:17:34 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Code:
    $ lspci | grep ISDN
    03:01.0 Network controller: AVM GmbH Fritz!PCI v2.0 ISDN (rev 02)
    Code:
    $ lsmod | egrep '(isdn|hisax|HiSax|avm|AVM|ISDN)'
    hisax_isac 7235 0
    hisax 470832 1 hisax_isac
    crc_ccitt 1675 1 hisax
    isdn 145942 1 hisax
    avmfritz 11621 0
    mISDNipac 21499 1 avmfritz
    mISDN_core 91556 3 avmfritz,mISDNipac
    If I try to start isdnutils the following error will be shown:

    Code:
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/isdnutils start
    * Starting ISDN services... * There is apparently no configuration created yet.
    * You can create configuration files with the 'isdnconfig' tool.
    *
    * If you don't want this warning in future, please create the file
    * /etc/isdn/noconfig
    * For more information, see /usr/share/doc/isdnutils-base/HOWTO.isdnutils.gz
    isdnlog/dev/isdnctrl: No such device
    With 9.10 I didn't need an isdn or capi config, the "no configuration" message also appeared under 9.10. It isn't needed for isdnlog, since it just is an "isdn sniffer".

    Output ot isdnctrl:

    Code:
    $ sudo isdnctrl list all
    Can't open /dev/isdnctrl or /dev/isdn/isdnctrl: No such device
    But ls seems to find everything:

    Code:
    $ ls -lsa /dev/isdnctrl
    0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2010-04-30 13:59 /dev/isdnctrl -> isdnctrl0
    The symlink does exist:

    Code:
    $ ls -lsa /dev/isdnctrl0
    0 crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 45, 64 2010-04-30 13:59 /dev/isdnctrl0

    Today's update to 2.6.32-22-server and changing the card to an AVM GmbH A1 ISDN [Fritz] (rev 02) didn't change a thing...

    The following solved the problem for me:

    Code:
    $ tail -3 /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf 
    blacklist mISDNipac
    blacklist mISDN_core
    blacklist avmfritz

    Re: isdnlog/isdnutils: /dev/isdnctrl: No such device

    Hi,

    I have a similar problem with a Gazel card. It worked with 8.10, but I'm not able now to make it work on a fresh 10.04 install .

    I have used an old doc here (in french) http://doc.cliss21.com/index.php?tit...9ris_-_ISDN%29

    but I'm not sure that it can work.

    I have installed :

    isdnutils-doc, isdnutils, isdn-xtools and ipppd

    I have tried to blacklist mISDN and hfcpci modules, but It doesn't change something, I have a message (device not found)

    I have seen that I load capi modules, is-it necessary (I haven't installed it, but it's already there) ???

    Can you help me ?

    Thanks for your answer

    A+

    Hi,

    The solution given by mes2k was good.

    I just have had a problem with the modprobe command. One parameter was missing, and the file hisax.conf wasn't created in modprobe.d

    That's now ok, except a little problem. The connection is launched when strating isdn service, and I have found, for now, no way to avoid this and also to launch connection or disconnection.

    But I think to find a way to do that.

    A+
