    Lucent/Agere WinModem and Getting It to Work


    [this is from another post on another forum. trying to give you the information this far]

    Hey. Let me start off by saying that I'm completely frustrated with this. Now, for some background.

    I used to run Slackware 9.2 (or 9.1, forgot). It had the 2.4.22 kernel, and I was able to make my modem work with it. Cool, for me. One day I decided to up the kernel to 2.6.5 or something and quickly discovered that I had no clue how to make the modem work with it. Oh well, I thought, I'll just use 2.4.22.

    Fast forward. My Ubuntu CDs arrive. Yay! They have the 2.6.8.1 kernel in them.

    Nothign works. Yes, I have tried all the 2.6 modem drivers on this page: http://www.physcip.uni-stuttgart.de/heby/ltmodem/ I got the kernel headers so it would stop complaining, but it just enters the directory and says "no target for "and" make" or something like that. Not sure what that means.

    I got as far as having the modules loaded up, some package. .deb

    I used "modprobe lt_serial" and no error. I did "lsmod" and YES, THE MODULES WERE LOADED!

    wvdialconf time. It scans the /dev/modem and it doesnt' work. says no modem although that's where it was loaded (dev/modem is a sym link. ttyLT0 is the real one). I go into network tools and it doesn't work.

    I cry inside.

    If anyone has any idea what to do, get ahold of me. Use this thread, various other means are listed below.

    AIM: nwig
    PM Me: OF COURSE!
    E-mail: alawiggle@gmail.com

    HELL, IF WE HAVE TO, I WILL CALL YOU AS TO NOT COST YOU LONG DISTANCE CHARGES.

    I just want this working.



    *********************
    someone told me to try the following
    **********************
    DId you try this:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=6361
    or this
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=6319


    Install this:
    http://www.vif.com/users/mzajac/ltm...8.31a9_i386.deb


    dpkg -i ltmodem*.deb

    (This is compiled with the default warty kernel)

    Let me know if it works.

    Do this:
    Open a terminal and do
    sudo pppconfig
    Enter the information as needed. Use the name provider for your default connection. COM1 is /dev/ttyLT0, COM2 is /dev/ttyS1, and so forth.
    Add your user to the dip group using the advanced options.
    Save and exit.
    sudo pon
    If you get nothing or if you run into trouble, open another terminal and do:
    sudo tail -f /var/log/messages

    This may give you an up-to-the-second idea of what is going on. Post the result in your question to the forum.
    sudo poff hangs up.
    You need to log out and back in for your user/group settings to be updated. You can then pon and poff without the sudo. Now, right click on the panel and add an applet called modem lights. It is already set up to use pon and poff. Make sure that it is using the correct lock file to see your modem or you will not see the lights.



    ********************
    my response was a text file with what i did. the information in that file follows.
    *************************
    ******************************************
    i used 8.31a8 because a9 didn't install the ltmodem.ko drivers. when i checked with the checkout utility. below is the dpkg install info that happeneed, and the checkout utility info

    at the end, it says "enter" and then stalls and doesn't continue. maybe it's the end?

    There is a functional dependence between many kernel modules.
    During boot up and module installations, these dependencies are written during a:
    depmod -a
    to FileNames: /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.*
    Enter
    ---------------------
    /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.alias /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.isapnpmap
    /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.ccwmap /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.pcimap
    /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.dep /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.symbols
    /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.ieee1394map /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.usbmap
    /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.inputmap
    ----------------------

    The lt_ modules lines within them/ can be selectively displayed with:
    grep lt_ /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3-386/modules.*
    Enter
    /usr/share/doc/ltmodem-2.6.8.1-3-386/utils/checkout: line 353: tmp/tmpfile.depends: No such file or directory
    ----------------------
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.depends: No such file or directory
    ----------------------

    For simplicity, some trimming of the PATHs can be done:
    ----------------------
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.depends: No such file or directory
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.depends: No such file or directory
    ----------------------
    The first line including only lt_modem.ko shows that its loading
    has no prior dependencies.
    The line with lt_serial.ko followed by lt_modem.ko
    means lt_serial.ko loading requires prior loading of lt_modem.ko

    Driver loading is dependent upon the existence of a device node: /dev/ttyLT0
    through which the drivers communicate with the modem hardware.
    Checking for the modem device node:
    ls -l /dev/ttyLT0
    Enter
    ---------------
    /usr/share/doc/ltmodem-2.6.8.1-3-386/utils/checkout: line 382: tmp/tmpfile.node: No such file or directory
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.node: No such file or directory
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.node: No such file or directory
    ---------------
    cat: tmp/tmpfile.node: No such file or directory
    grep: tmp/tmpfile.node: No such file or directory
    The required /dev/ttyLT0 exists, with access by members of Group: .

    Current Group settings are easily displayed by using a GREP filtration:
    grep /etc/group
    Enter

    ok .. firstly get out of the windows partition. Move the program to a linux partition.
    Next ... sudo requires absolute path to most commands i.e.
    sudo /sbin/ifconfig .. rather than just ifconfig (has to do with user PATH).Re-install the drivers.
    After you have done this please post the output of an attempted dial-out.
    Me & Myself just ganged up on I....... Now We all have problems..and none of Us are speaking!
