Impossible to tell without knowing the exact make
and model... winmodems are generally a bad idea,
though. Have a look at the output of (in a console)
lspci
and use a google search on what you get as the
modem device ... that should a) reveil whether it
is supported at all and b) if it is where to find the
proper drivers.


Cheers,
Tink

== Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

The modem has a supported Lucent/Agere DSP (digital signal processing) chipset

Vendor 11c1 corresponds to Lucent Technologies or subsidiary Agere Systems, Inc.
Information is at: http://www.agere.com/client/modem_dsp.html. Produced are both:
1) modems identifiable from their primary PCI IDs and
2) soft modem Subystem chips requiring identification through codec readouts.

Call waiting specified by, +pcw=1, is not implmented in the ltmodem drivers.

Many installers for RedHat are available at http://dag.wieers.com/packages/kernel-module-ltmodem

The desired installer name is like:
========================================
ltmodem-kv-2.4.20_8smp-8.31a9-1.i686.rpm
----------------------------------------
ltmodem-kv-Kernel_FL-LTver--.CPU.rpm explains the versioning.
For your System
Kernel_FL is 2.4.20-8smp , the full kernel version displayed by: uname -r
LTver is 8.31a9, the release of the compiler kit
8.nn is the Agere core code designation.
The proccesor type or CPU is: i686 dispayed by: uname -m
used in compiling and assembling driver packages.

A suitable installer is not available as of this 2005_Jan_09 update.
Check in the section redhat at http://ltmodem.heby.de/
for a subsequent Installer submission.
Older releases have been archived at:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pack...modem/archive/
Also there is a RPM search engine at: http://rpm.pbone.net
The closest match to your i686=CPU is recommended.
The closest match to your i686=CPU is recommended.
For example replacements in order of preference for an
i686 would be i586, i486 and i386
If not present use the ltmodem-8.31a9.tar.gz compiler kit.

For kernel-version 2.4.20-8 , a failure in utomatic loading pf PPP related modules
has been reported. It was necessary to manually load with:
/sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_generic
/sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_deflate
/sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_synctty
/sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_async
or dialout efforts failed.

The Internet Configuration Wizard writes a configuration file:
/etc/wvdial.conf
containing a line default line
Stupid Mode = yes
Better dialup performance may be achieved by commenting out this line as:
# Stupid Mode = yes
Also non-USA Users may need to add to the [Modem0] block:
Init2 = AT+GCI=hexadecimal_country_code
but test without it first.

kernel not supported? No gcc? Can install rpm's?

Your kernel does not appear on this list of rpms

http://www.sfu.ca/~cth/ltmodem/dists/redhat/8.26a9/

Perhaps you should update your kernel, or use source code.

The output also suggested you don't have gcc installed? If that's right, you should install it.

Can you install rpm's at all?
