Lucent Agere PCI 56K modem and SUSE 10
I have a Lucent Agere 56K V.92 modem. I have tried it under SUSE 10 a while ago but could never get it working, and unfortunately without internet support linux was pretty much useless to me, so I left it for a while. I posted a question ages ago and I recall someone saying the winmodem drivers aren't provided in SUSE 10, as they aren't open source now and you have to buy them now or something. In the last few days I've been looking for a PCI modem which is fully controller-based and it will probably cost me about $50 off ebay. Suddently it all clicked, if I could pay for the drivers it would be cheaper than a new modem.
Last time I had suse 10 installed I downloaded the latest ltmodem drivers which had to be compiled from scratch, and I am not a linux expert. I kept getting errors which couldn't be resolved, so I just gave up eventually.
Basically does anyone know how I can get this agere winmodem working with suse 10, if there are official drivers where can I buy them, and how much do they cost.
I don't want an external modem because they are bulky, use a power outlet and don't even really seem to be as quick as my winmodem. On the other hand hardware based PCI modems which don't require any specific drivers are very expensive and hard to obtain.
