Linmodem dono what ?


i did the scan for the modem (the linmodem thing) and . . . . nothing . . . i dont understand anything

when i did the scan this is what i got on the terminal

UPDATE=2006_Jan_28
ONLY use scanModem downloaded as: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

./scanModem should ONLY be run within a Linux/UNIX partition.
If within a MicroSoft/DOS partition, abort with Ctrl-C now !!!
Copy scanModem.gz to your Linux partition and restart.

Soft Modem Information

The earlier generations of modems had chips with digital signal processing (DSP) capability in which
most of the total modem effort proceeded. The "soft modem" is a generic name for modems
which lack DSP. Rather, the CPU does almost all the signal processing as directed by software code.
There are a few soft modems which are fully identified by the primary PCI ID of the modem card,
such as the Agere Systems 11c1:048(a,b,c,d) series.

The larger family is more troublesome, for identification of supporting software.
They are comprised of a primary modem controller which can host a variety of Subsystems.
Both the primary PCI ID and "mc97 codec" written in a Subsystem firmware chip are required,
for assessing support under Linux. Only subsequently is the Subsystem PCI ID useful, for record keeping.

The scanModem script contains five routines for acquiring the critical mc97 codec identification:
1) a modem driver independent test, only usefull for some of the earliest soft modems,
described at the end of this file;
2) a test using modem drivers already on your System, as part of the ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound
Architecture) software package ; See Slmodem-ALSA.txt for details.
3) a test requiring the SmartLink slamr.ko driver: see Slmodem.txt ;
4) comparison with PCI IDs with codecs historically gathered and stored within scanModem;
5) In case 1-4 are not adequate, there are the following instructions for running ATI queries under Microsoft windows.
Chipset information may be obtained under Microsoft Windows through:
1) Start > Settings > Control Panel > Classical View (for WinXP) > System > Hardware >
DeviceManager > Modems > Click on the + > Modem
Double click to expand the graphic. Manufacturer information may be displayed. For example,
CXT stands for Conexant.
Click the Diagnostics Tab, Record any Hardware ID or Vendor & Device information.
Next do the Query Modem and record the ATI specifications.
Try to identify the modem setup file, with name perhaps MODEM.INF
2) Open a COMM console, and send ATI commands to the modem (ATI, ATI1, ATI2, etc)
which may elicit chipset and driver information. Here is an example
ATI3 - Agere SoftModem Version 2.1.22
ATI5 - 2.1.22, AMR Intel MB, AC97 ID:SIL REV:0x27
successfully identifying an Agere SoftModem chipset, both by name and through
the:softmodem SIL ID: AC97 ID:SIL REV:0x27

The IBM mwave modem is not a softmodem, but cannot be detected by scanModem.
But the mwave driver is included in 2.6.n kernel releases. So try
# modprobe mwave
Either the module will load, or the absence of the modem will be indicated by:
FATAL: Error inserting mwave (/lib/modules/2.6.10-1-686/kernel/drivers/char/mwave/mwave.ko): Input/output error
See http://www.linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/mini/ACP-Modem/ for details on this modem.

Subsystems for softmodems are primarily made by Silicon Labs (SIL),
under contract to companies like Intel, Agere Systems, Motorola etc.
In the Table below,
The ChipMadeBy does NOT imply software support directly from that manufacturer.

The chart of information below is largely harvested from messages to discuss@linmodems.org.
A codec_indent like REV:0x27 is reported by diagnostics under Microsoft, as illustrated above.
The matching designation like SIL27 are translations under Linux,
output by a diagnostic of the slamr.ko driver, from the SmartLink slmodem software.
The SIL is an abbreviation for Silicon Laboratorys Inc., which provides Subsystems for many total modem assemblies.
SML is used below as abbreviation for SmartLink Inc., with official driver resources at
http://www.smlink.com/main/index1.php?ln=en&main_id=40 and recent patches provided at:

If a novel identifier is displayed during diagnostics, please report to discuss@linmodems.org

A rough/practical guide is first given, with some qualifications and exceptions to follow:
SILnm (n,m digits) are SML supportable;
CXTnm are ONLY supported by the http://www.linuxant.com/drivers, the hsfmodem package ;
INTnm are supported by Intel drivers and perhaps slmodemd with ALSA support;
BCMnm, INT65 (and similar name styles) have had successes with SmartLink slmodem in ALSA mode.
See the companion Slmodem-ALSA.txt for details.
Qualifications to the Table below relate to Linux software support for soft modem controllers.
In particular, no software package provides support for all soft modem controllers.

The following letters indicate compatibility for the modem controller,
BUT do NOT gaurantee support by the software.
Support MUST be ascertained by identifing the soft modem codec.

+ SmartLink (SML) - http://www.smlink.com, the slmodem-2.n.m series
A SML slmodem-2.n.m-alsa software supporting the ALSA intel8x0m-modem driver
Soft modems with the Broadcom codec BCM64 should thus be served.
T SML slmodem-2.n.m-alsa software supporting the ALSA snd-atiixp-modem driver
With the above SML software, port creation is controlled by a daemon, slmodemd,
rather than being a static feature of the /dev/ files.
a AgereSystems only under 2.4.n
p PCtel support at http://pctelcompdb.sourceforge.net/
c Conexant/Rockwell - http://www.linuxant.com
i Intel - http://www.intel.com
b Broadcom, under 2.4.n kernels, with ALSA code under 2.6.n
for details on A and T slmodem implementations, see Modem/Slmodem-ALSA.txt
===========================================================

To achieve codec readouts for SmartLink (SML) compatible modem controllers listed above,
follow the directions in Slmodem.txt.

The 1) driver independent test, some details
During bootup, kernel diagnostics on the System are stored for later display by:
dmesg
This information may include a SIL_id of modems under AC97/MC97 Controllers,
depending upon the type of bridging of the modem card to the motherboard.
The scanModem script processes dmesg output to capture AC97 modem information,
parses it into a SIL_id if possible, and then displays of modem chipset information.
Guidance to sources of modem supporting software may thus be obtained.

The transfer of the AC97 information to the dmesg buffer requires that modules supporting
both the digital audio card and the ac97_codec be loaded during bootup:
modprobe ac97_codec
modprobe audio_drivers (such as i810_audio)
This can be checked after bootup with:
lsmod

This script can also be used by entering a test block with nomenclature:
./scanModem SILtest
with SILtest a text file in This Folder
containing a section of a dmesg output or /var/log/messages like:

i810: Intel ICH 82801AA found at IO 0xdc00 and 0xd800, IRQ 11
i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 2 channels.
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: 0x4144:0x5340 (Analog Devices AD1881)
i810_audio: AC97 codec 0 Unable to map surround DAC's (or DAC's not present), total channels = 2
ac97_codec: AC97 Modem codec, id: 0x5349:0x4c22 (Silicon Laboratory Si3036)

which does include a line beginning with: ac97_codec: AC97 Modem codec, id:
in the UNSUBSCRIBE.txt

NOTHING !

it was clean



please help

thanx

You will want to setup using slmodem-alsa.

Basics to get it going is to load the snd-intel8x0m module. Command to load ' modprobe snd-intel8x0m '.
If it does not load then you need to recompile the kernel to enable it. To see if you have it you can goto /lib/modules/2.6.***/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0m.ko. If not there then you need to recompile the kernel. Many post here on how to do that.

Download the smartlink driver and compile according to instructions under the ALSA section.
Once compiled and placed where needed, run the command ' slmodemd --alsa '. It will tell you which /dev it is using for the comm port.
