pcmcia hardware modem, Mandrake 10.1 CE
hi all, I have been having problems with Mandrake 10.1 CE not recognizing my 3com Megahertz 56K pcmcia hardware modem. I've googled everywhere for info, yet it seems like nobody uses modem cards anymore. I have fixed the bug listed to turn on the pcmcia controller. I have total power to my pcmcia card slots, and it when I do cardctl info it tells me that I have that card in the slot, and that everything is working fine. When I go into HardDrake however my pcmcia card is not listed, however it does recognize my cardbus controller. I have added yenta_socket and cardmgr in the right areas, yet nothing seems to work, and I don't seem to be able to configure the internet. Linux without the internet is useless to me so I haven't been using it, although I would love to. This modem works fine with no hassles on FC1 and XP. The last time I checked I have the latest ldetect lists, and my pcmcia cards are not on the list. Another bit of info is that Mandrake recognizes my winmodem, yet I know that is worthless. The main reason why I bought the modem was so I could use the internet in linux. I need to get the modem working on Mandrake.
Can anyone please help me fix this problem? I really would love to stop relying on Windows XP.
