Intel 537 Modem install help


I got the drivers from intel but I can't seem to install it. I can't query the modem. I did the make clean, make 537, make install, but no modem file in the dev. I do that other stuff but nothing my PC freezes and my caps and scroll lock lights start to blink. Please examine the 537_inst and 537_boot scripts if you have a different distribution. It says to do this if it doesn't work. I just started using linux a week ago. I know I have to do this in the terminal. How do I examine the 537_inst and 537_boot.

Please examine the 537_inst and 537_boot scripts if you have a different distribution.

The driver registers itself as character device
major number 240, minor number 1.
The driver takes one argument right now, which is used to enable softbuzzer. It is disabled by default.

ATTENTION: if the driver compiles but the script just wont work for you.
Here are the bare minimum steps to get your modem to work.

0. log in as root.
1. insmod -f Intel537.o (Intel537.ko for kernel 2.6)
2. you can start "hamregistry &" at this point if you wish.
3. rm /dev/537
4. mknod /dev/537 c 240 1 (note "240" is the default, if it does not
work see what /proc/devices says 537's major number is)
5. ln -s /dev/537 /dev/modem
6. start a comm application like minicom and use the modem.
7. see section 3 (International Users) for info on setting the correct
country settings.

I do that other stuff but nothing my PC freezes and my caps and scroll lock lights start to blink. Please examine the 537_inst and 537_boot scripts if you have a different distribution.
