    no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

    Hi guys. I'm having a problem for about a month now. I tryed to do what everyone told me and i tryed everything that people told me to read. Redhat Linux 8 does not recognize my modem. I have PCTEL Platinum V. 90 modem. That is a internal winmodem. yes i do know it is possible to configure it but i don't know how. Can someone take me through this step by step?? Hold my hand all the way through. (Just kidding) but seriously i do need someone take me step by step. I have the drivers on CD and it's sitting here in front of me. Please reply back. Thanks guys.

    Hi,

    This is the main page for PCTel modems under linux. This is the README file, which should guide you step by step, and this is the FAQ. If you run into any problems while follwoing the instructions, feel free to ask.

    This is another FAQ.
    Hope that helps.

    I read the instructions so many times now. I even read them before you made the post with the instructions. They don't work. Please reply back. Thanks.

    Re:no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

    Try this:

    1. Download the driver to /tmp.
    2. Open a console, and from it, type tar -zxvf pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz. Then change to the directory by typing cd pctel-0.9.6.
    3. Type ./configure --with-hal=pct789 --with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.4/include. Make sure, before you do this, that you have your kernel sources in /usr/src/linux.
    4. Type make and then su -c "make install"
    5. Type insmod pctel and insmod ptserial.
    6. Type tail /var/log/messages.
    7. Compare the results to this:
    May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel initialization. Country code is 2.
    May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel device[00:11.0](0x88) found "PCTel Inc HSP MicroModem 56 (rev 01)" IOBASE 0xe800 IRQ 9.
    May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel driver version 0.9.6 [5.05c-4.27.215 (09-14-2001)]] (PCT789) (2001-08-18) with MANY_PORTS SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI enabled.
    May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel driver built on [Linux 2.4.8 i686 unknown] with [2.95.3].
    May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: ttyS15 at 0xe800 (irq = 9) is a PCtel

    Try to use kppp to dial out, using /dev/modem as your modem.

    Re:no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

    You have a compiler problem there.

    This says how to fix it. It is a bit complicated, so feel free to ask for help if you need any.

    Also, your error is reported in the PCTel FAQ

    Re:no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

    Ok.
    1.First, erase the directory where you tried to compile before. This will ensure you get a clean compilation.
    2.Decompress the driver again
    3.Go inside the pctel-0.9.6 folder.
    4. Do the whole ./configure --with-hal=pct789 --with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14/include.
    5. After that, go to the directory src/ptserial/, inside the pctel-0.9.6.
    6. In there, open the file called Makefile on a text editor, and look for the line that says:

    CFLAGS = -D__KERNEL__ -Werror -Wno-trigraphs -fno-common -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -D$(HAL_TARGET) $(AUDIO_ROUTING) -DBUILD_SYSTEM=\""$(BUILD_SYSTEM)\"& quot; -DGCC_VERSION=\""$(GCC_VERSION)\"&qu ot; -I$(top_srcdir)/include -I$(KERNEL_INCLUDES) -include $(KERNEL_INCLUDES)/linux/modversions.h

    Delete that line, and copy and paste the following one on its place:

    CFLAGS = -D__KERNEL__ -Wno-trigraphs -fno-common -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -D$(HAL_TARGET) $(AUDIO_ROUTING) -DBUILD_SYSTEM=\""$(BUILD_SYSTEM)\"& quot; -DGCC_VERSION=\""$(GCC_VERSION)\"&qu ot; -I$(top_srcdir)/include -I$(KERNEL_INCLUDES) -include $(KERNEL_INCLUDES)/linux/modversions.h


    7.After that, you should be able to do the make & make install without problems.
