    PCI modem needs help

    My serial modem is now away.

    So I borrowed PCI modem (HSF) from another computer (RH 8.0 installed and this PCI modem worked pretty fine with RH 8.0 kernel 2.4.20).
    Then I plug this PCI modem to my computer (Slackware 9.0 installed, same kernel). It seems not to work with my slackware. I just plug it and find it with `kppp', modem is found but no response and cant be initialized. I have enabled my PnP BIOS, it doesn't help.

    And there is a somewhat strange.
    # setserial /dev/ttyS0
    /dev/ttyS0, UART:16550A, Port:0x03f8, IRQ:4
    #
    # scanpci
    device Conexant vendor 0x14f1 device 0x2f00
    pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x0e function 0x00: vendor 0x14f1 device 0x2f00
    #
    #lspci -vv
    ...
    Interupt: pin A routed to IRQ 5
    IO port: 0xe800
    ...

    Serial port ttyS0 and pcimodem uses different IO ports and different IRQ.
    I wonder modem is still found and stated `modem is ready'.
    (But no response and can't be initialized)
    Moreover after I issue...
    # setserial /dev/ttyS0 irq 5 port 0xe800 autoconfig
    then modem is not found with `kppp'

    I have read many `HOWTO' documents, I didn't find any clue.
    Anybody please help me.

    Thanks,

    I'm guessing it's probably a WinModem (90% of new modems are ) so it's not going to work natively with Linux. I'm having a similar issue, as I have 3 modems and all of them are WinModems not reccognized by Linux.

    You CAN make them work, do a google search for winmodems in linux, but I personally haven't tried as of yet.

    I know winmodem, but it is not a winmodem.
    It emulates serial port, and it works very fine and very fast with Red Hat 8.0.
    It's a linmodem (Lucent one), I think I shall find its driver.
    I have modem driver in rpm format.
    I have to find out how to configure it on Slackware.
    Likely to run these scripts...
    ./build_module
    ./ltinst2
    ./autoload

    I have done this, but these scripts asked for gcc 2.95 not gcc 3 up.

    Thanks anyway,
