Unhappy opensuse and smartlink modem

hello everyone, i hope i can get some good help here in this forum. i have installed opensuse 10.0 and the corresponding smartlink-softmodem package for it, but my modem still won't work. i then did modprobe slamr, and it revealed that no such module exists on my system. so my question now is, how can i get that module in my system and where do i get it in the first place? i've spent the last hour poring through google search results to no avail, and so far, #suse and #opensuse in on IRC have been no help. thanks for your time and more power to linux.

Well, perhaps the SuSE package dosn't use the slamr version. There is also a version of the smartlink driver that works in conjunction with an alsa AC97 codec driver.

Probably your best bet, if you want to understand what is happening, will be to visit the linmodem project, get the scanModem script and run it. This will check out your modem and provide advice.
