ltmodem is busy

i've a notebook with an ltmodem installed on it that is making me crazy trying to configure an internet connection.
at last i've found out the rigth spot where i found the correct drivers.
i've followed the step by step howto and i've managed compiling and installing the drivers but after the reboot if i try kppp it hangs and tell "the modem is busy".
any idea on how to solve the problem?

Could be a permissions problem - have you joined all of the correct groups (dialout, maybe tty) ?

With LTModems you usually have to go back to the basics to get them to work - check that the module's installed, that all permissions are correct, and that you're pointing at the correct device (use eithe KPPP or Wvdialconf to check which device is active).

Have a look in /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog to see if there are any clues. I think the 'busy' message is because the driver is not working, as mjrich said. Try also doing lsmod in a terminal and see if the ltmodem driver is listed.
