diamond supra modem file

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

Hi all,

I would really appreciate what assistance you could provide.  I was
able to get this Diamond Supra working at one point but now it's back
to "no modem was found on your system".  There is an internal winmodem
which is why there's a second device listed.

Is there a step I'm missing?  Also, did the driver get wiped out by
some boot script or something once I installed it?  I just can't
recreate the solution which got it to start up a few weeks ago.

Thank you in advance,

Presently install your Linux Distributions dkms package. It provides
for automated driver updates,
following upgrade of your kernel.  For details see

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

 The PCI slot 00:03.1 of the modem card may be disabled early in
 a bootup process,  but then enabled later. If modem drivers load
 but the  modem is not responsive, read DOCs/Bootup.txt about possible fixes.
 Send dmesg.txt along with ModemData.txt to discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
 if help is needed.

 Completed candidate modem analyses.

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

 Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.4.5
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.4.5

 linux-headers-2.6.35-25-generic resources needed for compiling are
not manifestly ready!
 The patch utility is needed for compiling ALSA drivers, and possibly others.

 If compiling is necessary packages must be installed, providing:

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 273248 2010-07-09 09:41 /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

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: eth0
Which can interfere with Browser naviagation.
