will the ltmodem drivers work in debian sid (knoppix sid)
 
in knoppix sid , once on hd its debian sid and so once updated its debian sid , normal right?

then will the ltmodem drivers work in debian sid , and if so how do you go about installing them

also will MSN every put out a port of their MSN9 into Linux? like debian sid

First off, there is no such thing as Knoppix Sid, There are Debian live CDs floating around somewhere.(debian testing weekly builds, sidux) Debian Sid also is not what you would call "normal" we have different levels of testing separated as such;

sarge - oldstable (barely supported anymore)
etch - stable (currently the "floor model" about to be oldstable)
lenny - testing (newer software, about to have all bugs killed before going stable.
Squeeze - new testing (will be a mirror of lenny as soon as it is stable)
SID - unstable (gets all the updates and bugs first)
no-name - experimental (new packages, might not even make it to unstable)

For the drivers, sure why not. As for the MSN messenger..... Do you honestly think that MSN (Microsoft Network) is going to port out their messenger to Linux???????

There are alternatives if you need to speak to people on MSN however.

aptitude install amsn

Google search ltmodem there are many links about how to get it working in linux.

If you want Debian install debian Knoppix is a livecd that is not meant to be used as an installed OS.

As for msn take a look at amsn.

You will need to install martian drivers if you have mars chip on that modem. Go to linmodems.org and follow a link called scanModem, read how to use it, download and run this script which will produce all kinds of useful information in a folder called "modem". One of the files it will create is called "ModemData.txt" which has all the relevant information you need to get source code and how to prepare your Debian for compiling modules, and an email address where you can send that file to linmodem maintainers who will respond within a few days if you get stuck.

I've been using ltmodem for years as it was one of the only PCI modems that worked on 64bit Linux. But I've recently graduated to a USB USRobotics modem that works with all seven of my operating systems and has better speed than the ltmodem....which was the slowest modem in my "modem arsenal".

OH!
And if you are running 64 bit Debian, you'll need to compile the martian_modem user space component in 32 bit. This can be achieved on 64 bit Linux if 32 bit libraries are installed and you have to issue a special command to use those libraries.

Or you can compile martian_modem on any other 32 bit Linux with any kernel and then just put it in /usr/sbin of your 64 bit Debian. Whenever there is a kernel upgrade you'll have to recompile the martian_dev module, but not necessarily the martian_modem. I've used the same martian_modem file for a long time, only recently I had to make a new one as something changed in the kernel and my old martian_modem wouldn't work anymore.

Or I can email the new one I recently built with 2.6.26 kernel, it is only 660.8kb in size.

Hello Junior Hacker!!

I wonder if you can send me the file martian_modem to my email. I compiled module martian_dev in a Debian_lenny_AMD64 enviroment, but I need martian_modem to make it work whith the module. My mail is lnogueron@gmail.com. Sorry for my english, i'm spanish.

Thanks.
