Was it necessary to spam your question to so many newsgroups ?
Followup set to nl.comp.os.linux ,as you seem to be dutch and that's the
group I'm reading it.

Yes, if you have a supported PCMCIA card this is easily possible.
The card will behave like any other serial modem. I've used this
with an Xircom Ethernet/Modem card.
For PCMCIA cards, see
http://hyper.stanford.edu/HyperNews/get/pcmcia/home.html
Just look at the supported cards, and watch out for winmodem-cards.

Hi!

I have just installed SuSE Linux on my notebook.
I'd like to know if it's possible to use a pcmcia modem
under linux. Does anybody know how to do this?

Hallo!

Ik heb net SuSE Linux op m'n notebook geinstalleerd.
Ik zou willen weten of het mogelijk is een pcmcia modem
te gebruiken onder linux. Weet iemand hoe dat moet?

Om te beginnen moet je support voor PCMCIA inbouwen in de kernel. Voor
meer informatie ga naar www.redhat.com/support and zoek naar notebook
support.

GOOD LUCK

very funny

erg grappig
---------------
sehr witzig

Het modem werkt intussen, maar ik weet nog niet hoe de ppp
verbinding moet. Bij xs4all hebben geven ze een set files
(ppp-on) etc met instellingen, die heb ik overgenomen. Maar
wat je daarna moet doen om de verbinding daadwerkelijk tot
stand te brengen weet ik nog niet. (pppd?)

ppp-on is een script, dat moet je uitvoeren :)
Tik "ppp-on" ....

Yes it is possible, but you shold compile support for  PCMCIA
periopherals into your kernel (2.0.36, i suppose)

That's not necessary if you're using the original 2.0.36 kernel from SuSE.
If you have installed the PCMCIA utilities from your SuSE-cd's, you just
have to fill in your chipset (Intel or TI mostly) in Yast, and pcmcia
service will be started at boot-up.

1. aha2940u2w fails with rh61,62 suse6.4, ok w/rh6 and suse6.2

I'm trying to get linux installed onto a P-II with a brand new Adaptec
AHA-2940U2W and having strange problems. It seems that the newer
distributions have a problem with the aha2940u2w.

Any suggestions on how I can proced are welcome!

When it comes time to format the drive, the installation programs take
way too long, I've waited as long as 1 hour before giving up and
rebooting. The drive light stays on for long periods (45-60 seconds)
flickers off for a second, and then comes back on.

Redhat 6.0 is installing now with full partition and surface check, and
seemed to be going ok, SuSE 6.2 installed ok. Partition Magic 4 can
create partitions and format them ext2 without a problem. Full format and
surface check took about 10-15 minutes for 9 gig. Just partition and
format was less than 5 minutes.

Redhat 6.1, 6.2 and SuSE 6.4 all get s l o w. during access to the drive.
Once I tried partitioning and formatting with Partition Magic and then
installing RH 6.2 onto those partitions. When it started copying packages
to the drive it got about 6 gig copied onto the drive and then seemed to
be copying another 1-2 gig every 5 minutes or so (same activity pattern
on the drive status light.)

I've got 2 new WD 9 gig 10k Drives, the correct u2w cable and
Termination. I've even tried moving the cable to the regular ultra
connector on the card to no avail. Only other hardware at this point is a
3com 10/100 card and STB Velocity / RIVA128 4 meg video card.

I've put an older AHA-2940UW and a Seagate UW 2 gig drive in the machine,
and that works fine with everything.
Thanks,
Pat Cassidy
