ltmodem module compile on ppc
Well I did my homework, or so I thought and found that ltmodem allows certain winmodems to work under linux, great! I can buy that Walmart lucent chip based clearance modem and install it on the old Mac G3 AIO that I want to give to my wifes' father so he can tool around online do some emailing etc...
Oh Boy! I get Debian PPC installed on it with the 2.6.8 kernel and proceed to download ltmodem-2.6-alk-8.tar.bz2 as there are no binary packages under Debian and I am unable to find any .deb packages for the ppc architecture. I proceed through I run scanModem tool it tells me I have a supported card, yea! I decompress the ltmodem package and then get the kernel-headers and kernel-source packages I need, I compile a kernel and the modules then proceed to do a make with ltmodem, it teels me it's looking for a directory that doesn't exist, yes I add the dirctory then it tells me it can't find what it needs. Well a day's research later I find that the directory needs to be a symlink change what needs be done and cool we are off. make starts to run, about halfway through it tells me.
ltmdmobj.o unrecognized symbols in ELF (EM:3)
or something along those lines.
So I hit the research path approx. 6 hours of searching later and reading through documents in the ltmodem package I find that that ltmdmobj.o is a precompiled binary from lucent with specific modem mumbo jumbo, it is precompiled on...a x86 platform. So I am unable to compile the module for the modem.
Now comes the question....
Does anybody know of a way to get a ppc compiled copy of this file or a way in which I could get this file to work for the ppc Arch?
