    Initialising a device at startup (working winmodem)


    Well finally after finding this http://en.opensuse.org/Smart_Link_Modem I have got my Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop's built in winmodem to work flawlessly, except for the fact that evrytime i turn it on i have to redo the commands as root (yes i have made a script).

    Thats all good but, what i would like to do is somehow have it completely automated. I have tried installing the script into init.d and running it in runlvl 3 or 5 but to no avail. It doesnt seem to run at all.

    this is my script -

    #!/bin/bash
    # PCTel Winmodem Intialisation Script
    modprobe snd-intel8x0m
    slmodemd -alsa -c USA hw:1 &
    ln -s /dev/ttySL0 /dev/modem


    works perfectly as a standalone script if i run it as root but i just cant get it to kick off at boot. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    hi,call the script from /etc/init.d/boot.local(as it is SUSE)
    otherwise you would have /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    regards
