    Fedora Core 1,Modem Busy or Linmodem?


    Greetings to all.

    I installed FC1 a few days ago, i am unable to connect to the net.
    i encountered the following problem.
    Using KPPP when i 'setup' the connection, on querying modem i get following results.
    /dev/ttys0-->no modem found
    /dev/ttys1-->no modem found
    /dev/ttys2-->modem busy.
    /dev/ttys3-->no modem found
    i am also having windows 98 as second OS. here the modem is installed on COM4.
    --modem specifications--
    DIGICOM/Creative Modem Blaster V90 PCI DI5655
    --query modem result from Windows--
    Identifier DSMODEM\DSI0428
    ATl1 000
    ATl2 RXF2-V90A
    ATl3 V4.43.012-T-PI
    ATl4 Creative Modem Blaster V.90 PCI DI5655
    ATl5 OK
    ATl6 DS1820/DS1821
    ATl7 OK
    AT +FCLASS=? 0,1,2,8

    the drivers for this modem are available for MS windows at http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/drivers.shtm#comm [second row]
    but no such support for linux exists.

    also i searched http://65.70.147.202:8080/gromitkc/pci_list.html [from linmodem.org], the modem is listed under DIGICOM SYSTEMS (2/3 down the page 800x600 pixel).but on futhur going thru the links, the page seems missing or have been moved.

    thanks.

    ======= Fedora code changes =======
    SmartLink slmodem-2.9.n, Lucent/Agere DSP, Intel537 drivers are already Fedora competent. For usage of winmodems with the kernel-2.4.nn Fedora releases a change in the serial-like driver code of WinModems is necessary.
    See for guidance: http://hepunx.rl.ac.uk/~wmurray/pctel/pctel.html
    Basically , the line:
    if ((tty->count == 1) && (state->count != 1)) {
    should be changed into:
    if (atomic_read(&tty->count) == 1 && state->count != 1) {
    This works in the ltmodem code too. See
    http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/arch.../msg02360.html
    An error about "rs_close" during compiling is a signature that the fedora fix is needed

    Beginning with Fedora 2 kernel-2.6.6-1.427, kernel-headers needed for compiling drivers are provide at: /lib/modules/kernel-version/build/

    redhat is not yet providing pre-compiled drivers for WinModems

    There has been no formal support for Linux since kernels 2.2.2
    Some kludges are of fading utility as the Linux kernel and hardware evolves:
