Re: SmartLink slmodem 2.9.7 for FC2


I have found a solution at http://www.laclinux.com/ftp/lac/systems/laptop/common/modem/README.modem

in addition to what is written in README of the winmodem drivers, I had to do

1. cp scripts/slmodemd /etc/init.d/
2. add "char-major-212 slamr" and "char-major-213 slusb" to /etc/modprobe.conf (not modules.conf like in 2.4)
3. /sbin/chkconfig slmodemd on
4. ln -s /dev/ttySL0 /dev/modem

restart the computer. Now the winmodem will always work - my notebook (Russian Roverbook.com) is fully Linux-enabled again :-)

Sorry for a newbie question, but is it possible to make modem module
load automatically at the system start? I am using Fedora Core 2, with
2.6.5 kernel.

I compiled slmodem 2.9.7 with no problem. But I can't figure out how to
make /dev/modem working... Before, in Fedora 1 and with the previous
driver I needed only to run "make install-amr"... Seems like the way drivers are loaded changed with 2.6 kernel.

The new driver for 2.6 kernel was downloaded from ftp://ftp.smlink.com/linux/unsupported/
