modem seen but not heard!


System: Dell Inspiron 1100
Distro: Suse 9.2, kernel 2.6.8-24, KDE 3.3.0
Dual Booting with Win XP
And I'm totally new to this OS.

BCM v.92 56K MDC Modem not dialing
Interface: internal AC 97 bus
The modem shows in the device manager, but when I click on dial in the Kinternet menu nothing happens.

I tried running scan modem and this is what I got:

james@linux:~> chmod +x scanModem1
james@linux:~> ./scanModem1


UPDATE=2005_March_3

./scanModem1: line 223: gcc: command not found

You need to look in the text files that scanmodem wrote. The modemdata.txt file is the one that you need to look at. From memory though, I dont think it tells you which version of slmodem to use. Have a look and see, then post back here or to linmodems.technion.org. (or whatever it says in the file)

But there was no modemdat.txt file created in the tmp directory! Only info.txt, which is what I posted above. So did it not run correctly or something?

I dont know what is going on there. I just put scanmodem in my home directory and run it from there. Is the ./scanModem1 command a new one. I havent seen that before, though they are continually updating it. When I have run it, ( just with # ./scanModem ) there is normally a folder created called modem, and there are about five files in it.
