I am still relatively new to the Linux world (although I LOVE it) so please
excuse my probable ignorance on this one :)
Here is my situation: I am running Windoze 98 and RH Linux 6.0 (kernel
2.2.5, fresh install off of the CD) on two separate hard drives. I have a
PCI modem on COM3, and I have had a heck of a time getting RH to recognize
it to dial out. I used to have a 3Com 56k modem in, but that was an ISA
Anyway, I have /dev/modem set to ttyS2, but when I try to dial out, the
modem never picks up the phone. In fact, I never even hear the click of
when it initializes. I have moved the modem to COM2 (and set /dev/modem to
ttyS1) with no help.
In reading the modem HOWTO (I wanted to do some research first :) ), I read
that PCI modems are generally a pain to get to work in Linux.
Unfortunately, the HOWTO didn't really give much in the way of suggestion or
obvious things to take a look at or try.
So, my question boils down to, is there anything anyone can suggest that
might be one of the more obvious things to look at or try that I have not
done already? I realize all modems are different so I certainly cannot ask
"Please help me fix this" as that is not reasonable, but any suggestion
anyone can offer on obvious things to look at or try (perhaps from previous
experience) would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Thank you very much in advance! Sorry for being a little long winded too :)
