Re: AlBook 15" USB Modem

Dammit. Has anyone every gotten a company to release a ppc binary of a driver / etc? What would be the best way to ask a company?

This reminds me of the Macromedia Flash thing, a number of petitions and no actual change in their policy...

Hi there,

I have a PowerBook5,2 G4 15", and this modem on it:
P:  Vendor=05ac ProdID=8203 Rev= 5.26

Linuxant said it is not supported. Did anyone with the same modem
manage to get it working?

This is the modem or the bluetooth adapter ? afaik, on latest models,
the modem is no longer USB but i2s (sound bus)

At last, I found the answer for myself. We cannot have the modem
under our dear PPC port. Motorola gives only the x86 drivers under
binary form.
