Salve a tutti...
Pure io ho i soliti problemi con un winmodem...
Ho installato opensuse 10.3 sul mio vecchio pc per dargli un po' di vitalità... Ho già letto un po' di blog sui problemi dei winmodem ma... ... ...non ci capisco un granchè, è la prima volta che utilizzo linux quindi mi servirebbe una guida molto passo passo... Sono riuscito a far andare scanmodem con i risultari che seguono, poi dopo un po' di giochicchiare devo aver fatto un po' di casino e quindi mi sono spuntati errori nuovi che vi incollo di seguito...
Chiedo ad un'anima gentile di spiegare passo passo che ha da fare a questa pecorella nera...
Grassie... Laughing

Primary device ID: 11c1:0440
Support type needed or chipset: Agere.DSP

The modem has a Lucent/Agere/LSI Mars or Apollo DSP (digital signal processing) chipset.
Support packages for 2.6.n kernels are at: , with current update martian-full-20071011.tar.gz

See DOCs/AgereDSP.txt for Details.

Vendor 11c1 is Lucent Technologies with modem technology now under LSI Inc.
Their Linux code developer/maintainer is Soumyendu Sarkar. Support for a chipset and its
continued maintenance is only initiated at the request of a major chipset buyer,
or comparable sponsor. Several different modem chipset types are produced:
with varying support under Linux.

Completed candidate modem analyses.

The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.2.1
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.2.1

linux-headers- resources needed for compiling are not manifestly ready!

If compiling is necessary packages must be installed, providing:

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Checking pppd properties:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root dialout 298784 22 set 2007 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
$ su - root (not for Ubuntu)
chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of: /etc/ppp/options

Don't worry about the following, it is for experts should trouble shooting be necessary.
