Default Dial Up Modem Driver

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I purchased a dial up modem for my sister-in-law. (No DSL) the modem is
a SmartLink 56k PCI Modem and it came with the driver disk and I have
found them in the Driver Directory on the CD. My problem is how do I
install the driver. lspci does not show the modem as being there.

Default Dial Up Modem Driver

I'd recommend that you take it back and get a serial modem. Winmodems
are just more trouble than they are worth (IMO); some you can get
working, others not at all. Have a look here:

http://xmodem.org/modems/index.html
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/Modems
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/GeneralDiscussion
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/Smartlink

Given the cost of DSL these days in the US it's generally just as cheap
(or cheaper) to subscribe to a low rate DSL plan.

Disclaimer: The only dialup winmodem I've ever gotten working is a
lucent in an old laptop. And getting that to work resulted in help form
folks here *and* further loss of whatever little hair I have left. So,
If she's paying $15 or so for a dialup plan, and if you can get DSL
instead in her location, you can probably find a $15-20 plan w/DSL.
Further, as some that use dialup here will attest, downloading 200MB of
downloads etc., just ain't much fun on dialup...

Hi Bill,
if the driver on the CD doesn't specifically say it's a Linux Driver,
you can't install
it without using an extremely large Hammer. :-) . Windows software will
not install on Ext3.

Easier to get an external Serial modem, be careful of external USB
modems, most
are "Win modems" software driven. I have a USRobotics usr 5637 usb that
just plugs in and works.
Set up dial up connection to ttyACM0 and all works.
Hope this helps.
Take Care
Winton

Default Dial Up Modem Driver

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I'm sorry if I was not clear enough. I downloaded and unzipped
scanModem and after running it I recieved the following output. This
PCI Modem came with the drivers on the disk for Linux. What I do not
know how to do is to load the driver. If it does not work I do not
expect anyone to cry for me over the matter but I would appreciate some
help if anyone has any. Surely, with the thirty-two and the sixty-four
bit drivers in the folder for linux there is a way to install those
drivers or to apt-get install them from somewhere. I need to deliver
this unit in the morning.

This is an AMD x64 Dual Core running the 32 bit Hardy version.

Thanks to anyone that can help.

===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics =====
The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.
ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The ALSA verion is 1.0.16
The modem cards detected by "aplay -l" are: None


The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:
- -----------------------

Primary device ID: 14f1:2f50
Support type needed or chipset: hsfmodem



For owners of a Dell PCs with Conexant HSF modems, a driver source
package with full speed enabled is available, but requires driver
compiling. Read DOCs/Conexant.txt

Support for the 14f1:2f50 and 14f1:2215 HSF modems is projected early
in 2007 from Linuxant.

Start at http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/downloads-license.php to
find the
hsfmodem package matching your System. For several Linux distros, there are
precompiled drivers matched to specific kernels. These have within the
FileName,
your KernelVersion: 2.6.24_22_generic
They can be found through
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php
A more precise location may be given a few paragraphs below.
If an EXACT Match with your your KernelVersion is not found, one of the
"Generic packages with source" near the bottom of the page must be used.
Downloaded packages must be moved into the Linux partition (home folder
is OK)
and unzipped with:
unzip hsf*.zip
The installation command for a .deb suffic packages is, with root/adm
permission:
sudo dpkg -i hsf*.deb
while for .rpm suffix it is, with:
rpm -i hsf*.rpm
From http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-ubuntu-x86.php
download hsfmodem-7.68.00.12full_k2.6.24_22_generic_ubuntu_i386.deb. zip
Under Linux unpack with:
$ unzip hsfmodem*.zip
Then install with:
$ sudo dpkg -i hsfmodem*.deb
Subsequently, the modem should be found with
$ sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
Edit in your personal information with:
$ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
and try dialing out with:
$ sudo wvdial.
See DOCs/Testing.txt for details.

High Definition Audio (HDA) cards MAY host a modem chip in their
Subsystem,
and many are supported by the ALSA audio+modem driver snd-hda-intel
A modem was not detected on HDA card 10de:03f0.
If another modem card is present, then most likely 10de:03f0 does not
host a modem.
If another modem card has not been detected, then possibilities are:
1) A Conexant modem chip is present on 10de:03f0, as Conexant chips
are frequently not detectable by ALSA diagnostics
2) The modem may be of the older non-PCI Controller Chipset (hardware)
type.
Try detection with Root permission:
sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

Support type needed or chipset:

Support can likely be achieved through two mutually exclusive alternatives:
1) The hsfmodem software for Conexant chipset modems: Read DOCs/Conexant.txt
The following ALSA alternative CANNOT work with Conexant modems.

2) An ALSA modem driver plus slmodemd. Read DOCs/Smartlink.txt for
details, and
to test get the package SLMODEMD.gcc4.2.tar.gz from:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/

Completed candidate modem analyses.

The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.2.3
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.2.4



Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.2
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.24-22-generic/build

However some compilations and executable functions may need additional
files,
in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in
/usr/include/ .
For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also
required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.
Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev
packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
In not included on your install CD, search for them at
http://packages.ubuntu.com
or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.




If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some
FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include.
The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to
display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/linmodems/archive-sixth/msg02637.html

To enable dialout without Root permission do:

Hi Bill,
if the CD has drivers, copy the driver from the CD you will need (will
be a .deb file,)
to your home folder. Open a terminal and type sudo dpkg -i "the file
name of the driver" and press enter
Type in your password and press enter. Driver should install.
Then try what has been suggested to set up your internet connection.
Hope this helps.
Take Care
