View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install winmodem AGRSM, Ubuntu Server "8.04.1"

April 8th, 2009, 07:12 AM
Hello every one,

I have few problems getting my modem installed. I connect to the Internet by dial-up, through modem. So I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 with an AGRSM modem.
can anyone help me with this... PLEASE.

I appreciate any help.

Here is the output of

$ sudo ./scanModem
$ gedit ModemData.txt

===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics =====
The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.
ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The ALSA verion is 1.0.16
The modem cards detected by "aplay -l" are: None

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:
00-04: ALC268 Analog : ALC268 Analog : capture 1

HDA Intel at 0xfc500000 irq 22

PCI slot 00:1b.0 has a High Definition Audio Card
The drivers are in the kernel modules tree at:
The modem codec file for the HDA card is: /proc/asound/card0/codec#1

Modem Function Group: 0x1

The audio card hosts a softmodem chip: 0x11c11040
If not a Conexant modem, the driver agrmodem+agrserial+patched_snd-hda-intel with its dependent drivers:

provide audio + modem support with the modem chip residing on the subsystem.
Any particular card can host any one of several soft modem chips.

Vendor 11c1 is Lucent Technologies with modem technology now under LSI Inc.
Their Linux code developer/maintainer is Soumyendu Sarkar. Support for a chipset and its
continued maintenance is only initiated at the request of a major chipset buyer,
or comparable sponsor. Several different modem chipset types are produced:
with varying support under Linux.

Completed candidate modem analyses.

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

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.2.3
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.2.4

Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.2
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.24-21-generic/build

However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in /usr/include/ .
For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.
Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
In not included on your install CD, search for them at http://packages.ubuntu.com
or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.

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

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

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