I just put one of my boxes up with Redhat 7.0 with all the updates and I installed an Actiontec 56k. This is supposed to be a Tier 1 card. I get this message that says "Sorry, can't open modem" or "Sorry, the modem is busy" this is when I use /dev/modem in the Kppp option. I preformed the symbolic link, I also typed in the commands that I was supposed to. Also when I run /proc/pci the modem shows up in the list with the right IO and IRQ. I am not sure if this is the issues, but the Dev number is 9, and when I run /proc/interrupts it shows that Dev 9 is eth0. I am not sure, but please help.
I have been working on it for 2 days, I have worked on other issues longer, but I know that it is Linux and I have to work for things, that is why I like it. But I want to surf with my Linux box and through Windows out one. Does anyone have or has anyone run into this issues. I have to go back to dial-up, becuase I am one of the northpoint victims.
