Mandrake 10 Internet connection speedtouch
Right, there seems to be a lot about this modem so I can't be alone...
The USB Alcatel [now Thomson] Speedtouch (the Manta-ray - horrid green one) will not work. Quelle surprise.
I've tried various things that can be found here and there. Editing the files in /etc/ppp/adsl and the like.
Eventually located the speedtouchconf script and tried that. Much jiggery-pokery with the microcode and other things and the furthest I can get is to the point where the script says it is going to initialise the modem, the lights will flicker. This they do.
Before the script is activated I get two solid green lights on the modem after they've flickered once or twice I get a green light on the USB thing, and an amber light for the ADSL connection.
The script exits saying modem_run failed [error code 237] another program / device is using this device.
What's happening? There must be something holding onto the modem on startup but I'm damned if I know what or if I can find whatever it is.
This in Mandrake 10 and I'm a little uncertain about the network setup control supplied by the control centre, seems to hide a little too much for my liking.
Any insight appreciated.
