I'm running Etch on a Compaq Armada m700. It has a built in lucent
modem, and I have the driver version 8.26a from the ltmodem.org site.
When I run ./build_module, I get the following output:
Now acquiring distribution data:
The Linux distribution is: debian, testing/unstable
End of distribution check.
UPDATE=2004 April 25
A /dev/modem symbolic link is not set.
Providing detail for device at PCI_bus 0000:00:09.1
0700: 11c1:0445 Serial controller: Lucent Microelectronics LT WinModem
(prog-if 00 )
SubSystem 8086:2203 Intel Corp. PRO/100+ MiniPCI (probably an Ambit
U98.003.C.00 combo card)

Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
I/O ports at 3430 [size=8]
Memory at 41300000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
And then it hangs. Running the scanmodem script gives me the same, so I
assume it's that script that hangs. Removing the line where scanmodem
gets called, gives me the following:
To begin compilation of lt_modem.o and lt_serial.o, Enter
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Checking for driver products:
Compilation of lt_modem.o failed,
as expected from absence of modversions.h
And scrolling up I see:
configure support only for 2.2, 2.4 and 2.5 kernels
This works out of the box on SUSE 9.3, with the same version of the
driver, so at least I know that the driver *can* work with 2.6 kernels.
Does anybody know how to get this working? There is a .deb package for
download too, but it hangs at the same scanmodem part.
