WHY: Modem always missing after bootup?
I am using Mandriva 2007.0 and connect to the Internet using a dial up modem. The modem driver is slmodem (latest version). The dialup tools is kppp. Everytime I restart my Linux, the modem is missing. I test it by querying the modem. An error said that "Unable to open modem".
Thus following are the steps I do in order to make my modem work:
- make uninstall
- make install
- modprobe slamr
- slmodemd start or /usr/sbin/slmodemd
(Please Note: I am using the modem deamon provided by the driver itself, this deamon is keep under "scripts" folder). I have tested out that using the deamon from the linux (/usr/sbin/slmodemd) still having the same result.
May I know how can I make the modem driver "always" stay in the Linux.
