My girlfriend ask me to setup his computer with a linux.
I choose arch
She has a lucent winmodem and I would like to know how to setup his connection.
After some search I install ltmodem with pacman.
Pacman did it without error.
I add this in /etc/modprobe.conf:
alias char-major-62 ltserial alias /dev/modem ltserial
I also have this file for udev:
bash-3.1$ cat ltmodem.rules ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="ttyLTM[0-9]", MODE=="0660", GROUP=="tty", RUN+="/lib/udev/load-modules.sh ppp-generic", SYMLINK+="modem"
bash-3.1$ locate ltmodem.ko /lib/modules/2.6.16-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/ltmodem.ko bash-3.1$ locate ltserial.ko /lib/modules/2.6.16-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/ltserial.ko
The ltserial and ltmodem module did not load and I did not have a /dev/modem or a /dev/ttyLT0
Currently I using my cable connection (eth0...) and the rc.conf is set top use dhcp.
How must I modify the rc.conf to use the lucent modem?
I try to add ppp_generic, ltmodem and ltserial to module section but I have a error when I boot for ltmodem and ltserial (does'nt exist ?).
I never set a 56k connection
clean your modprobe.conf and try to load ltserial and ltmodem with modprobe
