Agere Systems PCI Soft Modem (Com3) - Driver


I need some help installing drivers for my Agere Systems PCI Soft Modem (Com3) on Ubuntu. The thing is I am extremely new at this and know very very little about using Linux. I have obtained a .tar.gz (martian-full-20061203.tar.gz). I have tried installing it with some instructions I got from a friend which matched instructions I got from the internet in installing it, but alas, I encountered an and I don't know what it means. If anyone could please help me (maybe you also have this modem?) I need some really specific instructions on what to do as I have to access the internet via Vista. Hurray for dual booting. I will post the error I got below. I can make no sense of it.

Any help would be hugely appreciated, thanks.

The lucent/agere driver is not completely open source. The stock reply in these cases is to use a modem supported by open source drivers. With that off my chest...

Some of those errors are way strange (arrays need to be indexed by integers for eg... suggesting bad coding or a corrupt source file. Or maybe it is for a more tolerant compiler?) However, it appears yau are missing the object code files that go with the source.

However... these drivers are supposed to come with the feisty release. Have you tried the restricted driver manager in system > administration ?

Adding to it the best is try linmodems and use their modem scan. I have had no luck getting Agere modems (4) to work. From what research I have done I understand there is a linux driver for one of the chipsets Agere uses but I never have had that model. I changed the modems to external modems which was recognized by linux and didn't require any drivers except it you are duel booting, you will need it for your windows. If you want an internal modem I did install a "Smart Link" and didn't have any problems with it. All this has been some time ago so please check with linmodem first.

Simon Bridge: I doubt it. I don't actually know what that is as I have had no chance to familiarize myself with Ubuntu as I have had no internet access with it. So I am still totally set in windows mode. You will need to explain a bit better sorry!

*Edit - Actually, the restricted driver manager? I have checked that when I was getting my 7600 gt working. and no, there was no Agere modem driver there. But I still don't understand what else you said in that post

Lance Starsweeper: when you reply, quote the bit you are replying to... otherwise your message will be meaningless: which bit do I need to explain?

1. Use a supported modem
2. The errors could be due to a corrupt source file
3. You need the object code files too
4. Use the restricted driver manager... oh you tried that?

The lucent/agere modem driver is called "ltmodem". It is in the list as included in the "restricted driver" package. If it ain't installed now, then maybe it is still on the CD.

Your best bet with any linux is to get internet access by any means... beg/borrow/steal an external serial modem, say, or use a net cafe connection (quite a few will let you). Just until you get set up.

I would appreciate it greatly if you could guide me somewhat into finding this driver on the CD. I have booted through the cd and checked the restricted drivers and there is nothing there except my Nvidia driver, which is useless without the internet to download it...</irony>

It should say "ltmodem". There is no Agere. If ltmodem isn't listed you will have to find a way to get and install the driver such as downloading it and burn to cd and then install. Don't get your hopes up, this still may not make your modem work; check out my earlier post.

The package is called "linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`"
Quote:
Non-free Linux 2.6.20 modules on 386
This package provides restricted modules for Linux version 2.6.20 on
386.
Currently the following modules are included:
- madwifi (Atheros)
- fglrx (ATI)
- nvidia
- fcdsl, fcdsl2, fcdslsl, fcdslslusb, fcdslusb, fcdslusb2, fcdslusba,
fcpci, fcusb, fxusb (AVM ISDN)
- ltmodem (Winmodem)

These modules are "restricted" because they are not available under a
completely Free licence.
Make sure the CD is listed as a repository in /etc/apt/sources.list

system > administration > synaptic | search "ltmodem"

I see this only for 32 bit.
