Firstly, my apologies for not getting back quicker, but I have been keep busy at work for the past couple of week, plus a couple of other things.
Secondly I would like to thank all that replied to this posting.
This is what I have achieved so far.
As I was saying I have a Lucent Technologies (LT) Telepath Internet 56K WinModem. I was able to download a driver for this particular model from the linmodems.org website, which can be accessed from the following link http://www.linmodems.org/
The source code for my particular modem can be accessed at http://www.heby.de/ltmodem.
The version of the code I downloaded was contained in the ltmodem-6.00a.tar.gz
I followed the instructions contained in the package and I am now able to make this post from my Linux OS. There is a very good compile and upload driver script with the package.
If anyone else tries this and wants help let me know and I see if I can lend a hand
No good news on this front.
My sound card is an Integrated sound blaster PCI 64V, according to the Gateway documentation, which has a Creative ES1373 chip
(Double-checked this by opening up my PC and viewing the chip for myself).
I have tried a number of approaches, modified various files and tried using alasconf, but have had no success.
Using alsaconf I have the following cards returned.
ens1371 Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 04)
legacy Probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips
When I select the ens1371 option the card appears to have been correctly configured, but there no so much as a beep from the speakers,
when the sound test is done.
When I select legacy option I end up with a result of No Legacy cards found.
Has anyone had any success with setting up a sound card with the same specifications as mine?
(See first post for details)
Once again any help appreciated.
