  1. Hello again, I've upgraded to kernel 2.6.6-1.427 awhile ago and the sources just a few minutes ago. I've used ltmodem-8.31a7 but wvdial never detected the modem so I used ltmodem-2.6-alk-4.tar.bz2 and that's where I am now. I think this just might work. Well, I'm definitely making progress, however, I am now more confused than I was before. Wvdial found a modem on ttyS12, symlinked to ttyLT0. When I dialin with kermit it connects... Trying: #######... Device: /dev/ttyS12, modem: generic, speed: 115200 Dial timeout: 70 seconds To cancel: type your interrupt character (normally Ctrl-C). Call complete: "CONNECT 28800 V42bis". Connecting to /dev/ttyS12, speed 115200 Escape character: Ctrl-\ (ASCII 28, FS): enabled Type the escape character followed by C to get back, or followed by ? to see other options. ---------------------------------------------------- Level 3 Comm nas2.2mi1 UQKT2 Username:/login:/Login: Password: Entering PPP Session. IP address is MTU is 1524. Communications disconnect (Back at solare.flare) ---------------------------------------------------- I know for sure I'm connected but I can't access google, etc. Any ideas on this one? Thanks
  2. Thanks cybrjackle but this is the site I've been looking at.
  3. It appears as if urpmi is the Mandrake equivalent for resolving dependencies. Is there a Fedora equivalent or am I completely astray from the start? I'm probably going to download kernel 2.6.6-1.427 files tomorrow so I may not need this information but I'd still like to know. edit: According to /. users, it's yum and apt. Also, you can download urpmi for FC2 here.
  4. Where is urpmi located? It isn't on any of my 4 discs, can't find it with find and which. root/install.log shows no urpmi installation. Urpmi isn't a KDE installation is it? Urpmi seems to be a Mandrake command, not FC2. Is there an equivalent in Fedora?
  5. Hello, Does anyone have ltmodem-8.31a5.tar.gz? I need this file instead of ltmodem-kv_2.4.22_1.2197.nptl-8.31a5-1.i686.rpm. When installing this rpm I receive a dependency error. I've found 2 links to the tarball but they are either not found or redirect to heby.de/ltmodem. According to the instructions here I need the tarball. FC2/ 2.6.5-1.358 Thanks
  6. Good question, unfortunately I don't have an answer. Believe it or not, I actually edited my post to add the bad link. :unsure:
  7. The readme inside hsflinmodem5.03.27.tar.gz doesn't include PCI ID 16EC:2F00 (U.S. Robotics USR5660A (265660A) 56K PCI Faxmodem) under supported HSF. My modem is pretty new so this older driver doesn't support it. It looks like the only way I'm going to be able to get it to work is buy the license or pay $80 for the only USR modem that supports Linux.
  8. Does anyone have the FC2 drivers bvc built? They are no longer available from his site.
  9. It turns out I have FC2 installed now and have gotten it to work but 14.4kbps is ungodly slow so I'm going to install Mandrake again and use the beta drivers. Thanks, I like Fedora, but if it's between 56k and 14.4 I'll use Mandrake. :P edit: bvc built one for FC2 but the link is down. > http://home.houston.rr.com/bvc/drivers/hsf...2600-1.i386.rpm
  10. Haha thanks buddy. I actually looked at this page a few times but never looked deep enough. PCI ID 16EC:2F00 (U.S. Robotics USR5660A (265660A) 56K PCI Faxmodem) The only problem is the free driver only supports 14.4Kbps... still better than nothing. $14.95 is awfully pricey for a driver, not a modest price if you ask me. I wonder if there's another site I can download the drivers from. edit: Apparently not. Do you know what the deal is with the licence by any chance? Do you pay and they let you download the driver with 56k support? Since it's ~900kb I'm assuming this would be the case.
  11. I've used gnome-ppp with 8.2 and 10. Now I have both Gnome and KDE so I'll have to try kppp. There's also commandline methods (kermit) but I haven't tried it yet either. What's so special about kppp, I've seen it recommended elsewhere too. You wouldn't by any change have the same modem, would you? You probably have the Performance Pro modem (USR5610B) which works with Linux.
  12. I've just recently installed MDK 10 after having used 8.2 off and on. The reason it's been "off and on" is because I had a Lucent Winmodem. Now I have a (see title). I should have looked into it more before buying it but didn't because I wasn't planning on installing Linux anytime soon again. However, I installed 8.2 again, went through a big hassle with setserial, setpci, lspci, (makedev <- the hassle). Makedev is a script in Mandrake 10 so it may work better but I'd rather skip it. I was wondering if, unlike 8.2, Mandrake 10 supports this chipset. At linmodems.org it says... I have found 1 modem that works with Linux in the US Robotics name but it costs $79.99 at CompUSA (most datamodems are pricey, of course). I've looked at a few compatibility lists (one being at mandrakelinux.com, but it was very little help). Does anyone know if Mandrake 10 supports USR5660A (either have gotten it to work or have hard evidence)? If not, will Conexant drivers indeed work with US Robotics. again... Thanks
