Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Very like bug #257725 ; just another Nokia without appropriate HAL rules.

Patch for hal-info attached.

Note that a significant number of other Nokia handsets will need HAL rules. I expect that all Series 60 3rd Edition Nokia phones will work, and I'd personally be inclined to try to match *ALL* nokia product IDs that have the appropriate USB interface and subinterface descriptors, rather than trying to exhaustively list all handset product IDs.

If that's for some reason not possible, then I'd say at least the following should be added to the int_outof match for Nokia phones in the patch I've attached:

N96: ?
N95 8GB: 0x006e
N82: ?
N75: 0x04e1
N73: 0x04d1

As it stands, the patch only adds the N95-1 (RM159) and N95-3 (RM160).

Note the way everything in the nm-tool output is repeated. That's a very odd, but separate, issue.

After a reboot everything is behaving sensibly. The N95 is detected and can connect to the Telstra network fine using APN "Telstra.WAP". The disconnect button doesn't actually disconnect, but it sounds like that's a known issue.

Now I just have to get it going with bluetooth, then get the laptop's built-in USB HSDPA to work. They all work with my own peers file and chat script, but NM doesn't see them. Expect bugs for them soon.

lshal output with original hal-info from NM PPI, no tweaks to hal-info or changes in /etc/hal/fdi .

Note that the system has an internal HSDPA modem ( a Dell 5520 ) as well, and that'll also appear in the lshal output.

The attached file, when placed in /etc/hal/fdi/information/ named (say) phones.fdi, will enable NM to see this phone. It's easy to add others, so people having issues can use this as a workaround until support for probing phones for capabilities is added. Just add your vendor and product IDs to the file as required.

Added to 10-modem.fdi and it works like a charm.

AkiraH, your model is already present in upstream git head, as "N95-2".
