Ubuntu Hardy and Agere Systems V.92 56K WinModem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi there:

I'm trying to configure an Agere Systems V.92 56K WinModem with Ubuntu
Hardy Server:
 - Ubuntu Hardy 2.6.24-28-server 32bits
 - agrsm048pci-2.1.60_20100316_i386.deb

When installing the package the script returns:
 - Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.24-28-server

Looking at make.log:
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-28-server'

I've found a problem similar to this here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1126136.html but the the
serial26.c line is already like it shoul be :S

Any idea about this?, cheers, Ibon.

Presently install your Linux Distributions dkms package. It provides for automated driver updates,
following upgrade of your kernel.  For details see http://linux.dell.com/projects.shtml#dkms

 There are no blacklisted modem drivers in /etc/modprobe*  files 

 Potentially useful modem drivers now loaded are:

If a USB modem or cellphone is attached and was not detected, please
provide available information in your request to discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Candidate PCI devices with modem chips are:

High Definition Audio cards can host modem chips.

For candidate card in slot 01:08.0, firmware information and bootup diagnostics are:

      Primary device ID:  11c1:048c
 Support type needed or chipset:	agrsm

The AgereSystems/LSI agrsm code supports compiling of a agrmodem + agrserial driver pair.
There are a few different chipsets which use this driver pair, but they use different code resources:
Chipsets			KV*	PackageNames (most current as of November 2009)
11c1:048c and 11c1:048f         2.6.29	agrsm048pci-2.1.60_20100108_i386.deb or agrsm048pci-2.1.60_20100108.tar.gz
11c1:0620                       2.6.31  agrsm06pci-2.1.80_20100106_i386.deb or agrsm06pci-2.1.80~20100106.tar.gz !!
11c11040 (on HDA audio cards)   2.6.31  agrsm-11c11040_20091225_i386.deb or agrsm-11c11040-2.1.80~20091225.tar.bz2  !!
   All available at: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/ltmodem/11c11040/   
Additionally there are;
automation & testing                    agrsm-tools_0.0.1_all.deb or agrsm-tools-0.0.1-2.noarch.rpm
General background                      agrsm_howto.txt 
* KV == latest kernel release with a reported success 
!! Latest update with major credit to  Nikolay Zhuravlev
   But see conflict issue: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-nineth/msg02753.html 
   For the 11c11040 chip with kernels 2.6.31 and later a change in a modules loading settingmay be necessary.
   Within the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf  (or equivalent for your Distro), change the phrase:
      options snd-hda-intel power_save=10
      options snd-hda-intel power_save=0
   or the agrsm drivers will not function. For Ubuntu related systems this can be done with:
   $ sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Report from  Bjorn Wielens:
Please note- trying to load the modules on a OpenSuSE 11.2 system gives
 an error about the module_version symbol. Using:
# modprobe --force agrmodem
# modprobe --force agrserial 
is necessary to load the drivers, and does not appear to cause ill effects.

All of the above packages are dkms competent.  This means that if your Linux distros dkms package
is previously installed, if provides for future updates matching forthcoming kernels.

-------------- end Agere Systems section -------------------

 Completed candidate modem analyses.

 The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

 The kernel was compiled with gcc version 4.2.4 and a compiler is not installed

 linux-headers-2.6.24-28-server resources needed for compiling are not manifestly ready!
 The code linking utility, ld, may be needed and is provided in the binutils package 
 The patch utility is needed for compiling ALSA drivers, and possibly others. 

 If compiling is necessary packages must be installed, providing:
	gcc-4.2 make linux-headers-2.6.24-28-server

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$  apt-get update
$  apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Checking pppd properties:
	-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 269256 2007-10-04 21:57 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
	$ su - root  (not for Ubuntu)
        sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
	sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of:	/etc/ppp/options
asyncmap 0
lcp-echo-interval 30
lcp-echo-failure 4

In case of a message like:
   Warning: Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied
see http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-sixth/msg04656.html

For guidance on FAX usage, get from http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/  get faxing.tar.gz
It has samples for a modem using port /dev/ttySL0, which must be changed to match your modem's port.

Read Modem/DOCs/YourSystem.txt concerning other COMM channels: eth2
Which can interfere with Browser naviagation.

 Don't worry about the following, it is for experts should trouble shooting be necessary.

 Checking for modem support lines:
     /device/modem symbolic link:   
slmodemd created symbolic link /dev/ttySL0:  
     Within /etc/udev/ files:

     Within /etc/modprobe.conf files:

     Within any ancient /etc/devfs files:

     Within ancient kernel 2.4.n /etc/module.conf files:
