Re: Fedora 5 works perfectly, except usb modem



 
Summary so far:
> > Point of e-mail: How do you get fedora 5 to detect
> and install a USB dial-up modem (DC-009 V2 Sitecom)?

 
Here are the results of the various commands you asked me to execute. Unfortunately I don't have lsusb so I couldn't do lsusb -v... I also cannot access the internet using dial-up, so obviously cannot yum it.
Another problem is that when I go to Add New Software there is an error in detecting packages and I cannot install any packages at all.
 
But here are the other results:
 
for dmesg... there are bits in here that describe me disconnecting and connecting my USB modem:
 
USB disconnect, address 3
usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 4
 0:0:0:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
 0:0:0:0: rejecting I/O to dead device

 0:0:0:0: rejecting I/O to dead device

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
 
 
 
for tail /var/log/messages... shows pretty much the same thing at the end:

and for scanModem, it only detected the internal broken modem; there was no mention of any USB devices.
 
 
I haven't tried slmodem-2.9.11 as I suspect I have no gcc and I cannot install anything at present.
 
 
Cheers,
 
W.

Jeff,
This is the way to go.  William, please download
scanModem, from here

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

copy it to linux partition and become superuser
$ su -
password: *****

# gunzip scanModem.gz
# chmod +x scanModem
# ./scanModem

post to this list if you can't subscribe to
discuss linmodems org and I can relay your message to
the list.  If the slmodemd-2.9.X drivers worked for
you before I do not see why not, the
slmodem-2.9.11-20051101.tar.gz from smartlink
directory in linmodems will not do the job for you.

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/slmodem-2.9.11-20051101.tar.gz

If these are the drivers, be aware that you will need
to apply some patches for it to work with Fedora Core
5, namely, I will refer you to

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/archive-sixth/msg01401.html

where doing as the instructions for each file will
work for Fedora Core 5.

Regards,

Antonio
