winmodem on Mandrake 10.1
hi, i'm new to linux and i'm not able to make my modem work...
my kernel is 126.96.36.199-12mdk
i have a lucent/agere winmodem and i download drivers for it.
i read on the readme that i need serial_core and crc32 modules!
i don't know what they are and how to get them..
do i need to compile the kernel?
is there a solution to install only these modules without re-compile kernel?
if someone can help me...... :(
winmodems are for win applications
because your trying to use a winmodem in linux your not going to have the win support you need
the winmodems use part of windows to make it work, thats the reason they are 10 or 15 dollars a few years ago we were spending about 100 bucks for a modem that would blaze our packets to the net at 14 to 32k
what you can do is look around second hand stores for a old external modem, I have seen lots of em, second choice is to buy one. then you have a whole modem and linux can configure it
