Modem not working after kernel recompile
I just recompiled the kernel on my girlfriends machine, and now when she tries to dial in, kppp says cannot open modem. I can't really diagnose the problem, since I did this all remotely, and I won't be able to get to her computer until later this week. I added module support for PPP and async serial ports when using menuconfig. I thought that was all I would need to add. Also, the modem is a winmodem, and its PCI. I don't remember whether I used the Conexant HCF or HSF dirver, but she still has the file for that. Do I maybe need to reinstall the driver? Do I possibly need to add module support for sync tty ports? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I also gave her instructions on how to recompile the kernel, which she's already followed successfully, so having to recompile the kernel isn't a problem. Thanks for the help.
