PCtel HSP56 MR modem in MDK10 (kernel 2.6.3-4)
Last weekend i finally got and installed Linux Mandrake 10 Community (download version). The installation and configuration was a piece of cake. Put aside problems with dual boot which i caused by having the third OS installed (BeOS).
Anyway.. all hardware is working fine except modem and Lexmark X75 AllInOne printer with scanner.
However, what's very important to me isn't printer right now, but a modem for which i gotta make it working under my new linux so i can finally have it as my primary system. It's too beautiful not to have it as my primary OS for which internet connection is a must.
Here's my data and i hope anyone can help:
PCtel HSP56 MR Data/Fax/Voice
it seem's it's on sis 7013 chipset or subsystem
it came with my crappy PCCHIPS M810 LMR mainboard with sis730s chipset (actually same as sis630/730) and it's located in AMR slot (Audio Modem Riser).
I googled over whole web, read the relevant pages of linmodems.org site, downloaded and tried smartlink smlmodemd (smbmdm), installed it by the book, but still getting BUSY errors.
I then tried the newest version of PCTEL driver provided and linmodem, the PCTEL v2.9.9-7, but it say's it's only for kernels 2.4.x which seems to be the main problem here.
I could probably get it working with that if it only supported the new 2.6.3 kernel.
Any help is very appreciated.
And my specific question is are there and where drivers that are compatible with linux kernel 2.6.3-4 on Mandrake 10??
Thank you very much!
