Hi, I've been trying to get my laptop's (acer aspire 1524) modem to work with Fedora Core 3 64-bit. In the WinXP taskmanager it says Agere Systems ac'97 and from the at commands i found : ATI3 : Agere SoftModem Version 188.8.131.52, ATI5 : 184.108.40.206, AMR Via MB, AC 97, ATI7: AMR Via MB
and the following
PCI CONFIGURATION INFORMATION READ:
VENDOR ID : 1106
DEVICE ID : 3068
SUBVENDOR ID : 1025
SUBDEVICE ID : 0046
REVISION ID : 80
VENDOR NAME : VIA
DEVICE NAME : VIA
SUBVENDOR NAME : ACER --]
MODEM TYPE : UNKNOWN
WINXP INBUILD SUPPORT : NO
Should I gather any more info (and how) ? Is there anything to be done or is it never going to work ? Please, keep it simple, I'm a total noob with linux. Thank you very much and congrats on the great job done in here !
how about if i told you agre was in the process of writing a linux driver?unfortunately that process has gone on for nearly 4 years without a single release from them.basicly,you're doomed.
a nice external serial modem would do wonders to simplify the install.
With the sourcepack for slmodem come some startup scripts, for mandrake too, as far as I rember: they load the module and start the daemon in the background during startup, so you do not have to have the shell with the process open.
No, I didn't have that problem. At first I was connected but couldn't browse. I unistalled everything about the firewall and then I could browse.
I don't know maybe if you try to change firewall settings??
Or try the scenario option from Kppp???
I don't know. Sorry!!!!
