At he moment i have installed a POS with SuSE 10.3 but am having a problem in recognizing the device name. If i try with a GlobeTrotter EDGE GPRS card its recognised /dev/ttyACM0 and if its a USB it becomes /dev/ttyUSB0. This device name is the one i will pass as a pameter in comgt (ie /usr/bin/comgt -d /dev/ttyACM0) to nitialize the modem and SIM card and then configure it in wvdial. The following is the info i get when i issue dmesg command.
pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
cs: memory probe 0xec000000-0xec0fffff: excluding 0xec010000-0xec01ffff

The issue is i have to use these specific cards as they are already bought. Please help me to identify or assign IRQ and device name or basically what i need to do to make it work. Thanks in advace
The GPRS card works fine in windows when drivers are installed this makes me believe it should work in linux. I have chosen to deploy in SuSE 10.3 since it's easy to new users in windows. Could it be possible to load the dlls in windows in linux.. even if an IRQ is not given to the card?
