Re: Dennis, US Linux Mint 12 Lisa kernel 3.0.0-12-generic

Denis,

Motorola has never provided support for its modems under Linux.
The slamr support for the SM56 modem could not be predicted.
Rather, a test was run and luckily it worked fairly well under the old
2.4 series kernels.  But as the Linux code has evolved, there has been
nothing we can do in the Closed Source component of the code, to
optimize service.

If you have no other CONNECT choice but the modem, your best option is
to buy a Controller Chipset (so called hardware) modem, which have
Open Source drivers fully supported under Linux.  Read the DOCs ouput
by scanModem for details.
