Problem

After finishing the isdn capi (not hisax) configuration with yast I can use the tool "kinternet" to connect and disconnect to the internet. After a reboot it does not work anymore. I can see:

Skipped services in Runlevel 5: isdn

After:

/etc/init.d/isdn restart
/etc/init.d/smpppd restart

I can use "kinternet" to connect to the internet, the problem is that only root has the right permission to do that.

Solution

I've hacked the following two files: You can see the STARTMODE="manual" in both scripts, set it to STARTMODE="onboot" as shown below:

linux:/home/hauser # cat /etc/sysconfig/isdn/cfg-contr0
AREACODE="+49 7438"
DIALPREFIX=""
DRIVER="fcpci"
ISDNLOG_START="yes"
NAME="AVM FRITZ!Card PCI"
PARA_SUBTYPE="1"
PARA_TYPE="8002"
PROTOCOL="euro"
STARTMODE="onboot"
UNIQUE="37TO2343423434WECAC"

linux:/home/hauser # cat /etc/sysconfig/isdn/cfg-net0

CHARGEHUP="off"
DEFAULTROUTE="yes"
DYNAMICIP="yes"
FIREWALL="yes"
IPADDR="192.168.99.1"
MSN="074213456789" 
MULTILINK="no"
PROTOCOL="syncppp"
PROVIDER="provider0"
PTPADDR="192.168.99.2"
STARTMODE="onboot"
USERCONTROL="yes"

Afterwards issue a:

SuSEconfig --module isdn

And everything should be fine. You can check if everything went fine if you don't see the "skipped" inidcator for isdn while booting your system.

Reboot your system now and check if it's working. (Don't forget to bookmark this article) in case you still need a second look at it.

misc (solution?)

As described in [1] I've also done the steps below but I can't tell for sure that this is really needed so try this only if the above didn't help yet.

I've also modified /etc/init.d/smpppd and I inserted:

# Required-Start: $All

instead of

# Required-Start: $remote_fs $network $syslog

Afterwards issue as root:

insserv smpppd
