Question Ubuntu Server 9.10, ICH4 AC97 modem, sl-modem-daemon dies


Goal: Get Hylafax to send and recieve faxes on my old IBM R40 notebook with built in modem (ICH4 AC97).

What I've tried so far:
1. sl-modem-daemon with alsa-driver (snd-intel8x0m)
2. sl-modem-daemon with soft link-driver (slamr)

1. In the first case I get the modem working fine and well, except that incoming calls are ignored (no RING-messages in minicom). I read somewhere that this is known to be the case with the above mentioned driver. Which is what got me to try out the soft link-driver.

2. In the second case, I get everything working, until I reboot or restart the sl-modem-daemon (e.g. after setting my country). If I don't restart/reboot, minicom can both connect to the modem as well as show the RING message when I call it from my cell. After reboot/restart, sl-modem-daemon dies a second or two after it has been started, even though there's no error messages.

Any ideas as to what I can do about this, or how I can reach my goal? Any help appreciated! =)
