Re: A winmodem problem

I hope someone here can help me.

The system is Debian version 3 and kernel 2.4.18

The modem is described as: LM (AusTel: 018-05600618) L56DM+S InModem IN5699 (OEM pack), Model IN5692, Lucent 1646T00/1034AH-J (Mars-2) chipset, Requires Lucent "Linmodem" driver Yes No PCI Warwick Rendell, Rick Harris

The computer is a 200Mhz Pentium II (a 586 chip).

From the "Linux Drivers for Lucent/Agere Winmodems - download page" (www.sfu.ca/~cth/ltmodem/)
I have found two drivers, either of which might be the one I need. These are named: ltmodem-2.4.18-386 8.00a3 i386.deb and ltmodem-2.4.18-586tsc 8.00a3 i386.deb

I have no experience in setting up any modem with Linux and the data above means very little to me.

Questions are:
1. which driver should I try? and
2. how do I remove a package if I install the wrong one?


If you are using a stock debian kernel, you want the one that is ltmodem-`uname -r` 8.00a3 i386.deb.[but this is the directions on the page so I don't understand where you are going wrong] If you have compiled your own kernel, then you need to compile the ltmodem driver yourself.
