Stop me having to reinstall modem EVERYTIME


I GOT IT GOING BUT!!

How i get /dev/modem to be there in the first place(work), is to install and configure the drivers/modules(?) by doin:

./configure --with-hal=pctel789
make
make install
--change to root--
insmod -f pctel
insmod -f ptserial

---------------------------------


Then run kppp and connect to internet but how can i make /dev/modem stay because after a reboot it goes

I even added to /etc/modules.conf

# for pctel modem
alias char-major-62 ptserial
below ptserial pctel
# country code for pctel modem
options ptserial country_code=32

Then ran depmod -a (as root) but no luck, i only get /dev/modem if i reinstall the drivers each time.

Thanks CaM

Mandrake 9.1
2.4.21-0.13mdk

PS i think modem should be on /dev/ttyS15 - but that often disapears too

I am using Slackware 9 but this should work in MD as well. Edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and insert this 2 lines :
/sbin/modprobe pctel
/sbin/modprobe ptserial

and restart your pc.

Hope this works for you!

I also have Knoppix/debian and added those 2 lines in the /etc/modules file.

BTW,use the latest pctel driver,it is better than using 'hal':http://www.medres.ch/~jstifter/pctel/pctel-0.9.7.html
