Unhappy Suse 9.0 and USB speedtouch 330 adsl modem

Hello All,

I am a new user to linux and have got a copy Suse 9.0 which was recommeded to me by a friend at work.

I have got a working install on a |Sony labtop and everthing went okay untill I tried to install a USB speedtouch 330 modem.

I found instrutions on a web-site

I followed these until I had a problem building the driver. I found the solution to this on a web page

This solved the problem building the driver. I then followed the rest of the instructions but I cannot connect.

I think the problem is with the modem_run programme as I would expect the lights to flash when I start this programme but nothing happens.

Does anyone know were I can find out what is going wrong as there is no messages from the modem run programme and I am not sure were to look for them ?

Does anyone have this modem working with Suse linux ?

It works for me.... but still having problems starting it, 1 in 10 it succeeds. Have you started hotplug?

This is the message when it fails (during the modem_run command):

"modem_run[25789]: Another program/driver is already accessing the modem (interface 1 cannot be claimed)..."

This is my script for starting it:

### Driver software:

IPADDRESS=">>>your ip address<<<<"

case "$ACTION" in
$LOG S "$SCRIPT: Start ADSL..."
echo -n "Starting..."

echo -n "ppp_generic..."
modprobe ppp_generic

echo -n "ppp_synctty..."
modprobe ppp_synctty

echo -n "n_hdlc..."
modprobe n_hdlc

echo -n "modem_run..."
/usr/local/sbin/modem_run -m -f /usr/local/lib/mgmt.o
if [ "$?" != "0" ]
$LOG ! "$SCRIPT: Error with modem_run"
echo "Error with modem_run";
exit 1;
result=`tail -3 /var/log/messages`
$LOG - "$SCRIPT: $result"

echo -n "start ppp..."
pppd call adsl

sleep 10
echo -n "gateway..."

sleep 2
route add default gw $IPADDRESS
echo " done."
$LOG E "$SCRIPT: Start ADSL done"

$LOG S "$SCRIPT: Stop ADSL..."
echo -n "Stopping pppd..."
process=`ps -ef | grep pppd|grep -v grep`
if [ "x$process" = "x" ]
echo "pppd is not running!"
exit 1
pid=`set $process;echo $2`
echo "killing process $pid"
kill $pid
result=`tail -3 /var/log/messages`
$LOG - "$SCRIPT: $result"

echo " done."
$LOG S "$SCRIPT: Start ADSL done"

$LOG S "$SCRIPT: Cleaning up ADSL..."
echo -n "Cleaning up ADSL..."
rmmod n_hdlc
rmmod ppp_async
rmmod ppp_synctty
rmmod ppp_generic
rm /var/run/pppo*
echo "now powercycle the adsl modem "
echo " done."
echo "On errors, search for running processes"
$LOG S "$SCRIPT: Cleaning up ADSL done"

echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|clean"
echo " Sluit eerst de SpeedTouch 330 op de USB poort aan,"
echo " start daarna dit script"
