RE: Smart Link Modem
When I try to start slmodemd I get the following
error: mdm setup: cannot open dev '/dev/slamr0': No such device
error: cannot setup device '/dev/slamr0'
when I go into /dev and check, slamr0 does in fact exist. The modem symlink
to ttySL0 exist also, however ttySL0 does not exist. So I thought the driver
was not setting up correctly.
