PCI modem problems


Having read the HOWTO for these little boogers, and read the man pages for every command I could find that this HOWTO contains, I still can't figure out how to make this work.

As of this post (from another computer, obviously) I can tell you I am using Slackware 9.1 and the the standard kernel that comes with that. I can't remember the exact version number.

I am using a 56k v.92 PCI Modem model: DX-M100 by DYNEX. I believe it is an intel chip.

Also, I came here first because most answers I get are usually here, but after this post I am checking with Dynex via thier website.

Output from lspci -vv and my exact kernal will be added tomorrow morning, after I get them off my Linux machine and copy it all down.

u are very luck
good news for u.
ur modem's chipset should be Intel 536EP which was stated in
http://www.dynexproducts.com/alm?Dyn...0_Modem_manual
or ur modem's documentation.
anyway, u can find the driver at http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...?ProductID=977
all u have to do is select the dist. ur are using.
if urs aren't listed, then just select linux* and compile it.
for how to compile it. go to www.linmodems.org for further info

Hmm

I looked into Dynex website and found the chipset. Still hadn't found the driver yet. Thanks for the tips and the ultimate help!

Hmm, had to get the source and got it compiling. Using Slackware 9.1 I get the message:

unknown distrobution, no install scripts loaded

and an install error 1

Being the curious individual I am, I tried looking through the install script, as the reame suggests, to try and find the error. Unfortunitely, that didn't help.
