    Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    I did this using 2.6.15-26 and it worked well for me on kubuntu.

    Did you use the Conexant drivers, or the Smartlink drivers?

    I'm trying to get the modem on my HP Pavilion ZE4300 working, but haven't had luck with either. The Conexant driver doesn't install /dev/ttySHSF0 or /dev/modem, though no complaints are issued. Under slmodemd the system locks up when I try to do anything with the modem (via "Networking" under GNOME). I've tried using both pre-built and locally-built kernels.

    PCI id is 10B9:5457, so it *should* be supported by the Conexant driver.

    Is there someone out there that would be willing to create a script to take care of all of this?

    Has anyone tried this with Edgy? I'm going to try it later today & report if it works--the Smartlink modem in my system works very well with Dapper--so far, in Edgy I get that the module has a mis-match (using the Synaptic sl-modem-source).

    Question Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    Well--I gave it a try. Using the downloaded module drivers would not work--error'd out during build--installing via the downloaded files from Dapper & using Gdeb package installer worked--but gave this output with modprobe & dmesg | grep

    dean@Linux:~$ sudo modprobe slamr
    Password:
    FATAL: Error inserting slamr (/lib/modules/2.6.17-6-386/extra/slamr.ko): Invalid module format

    Any ideas anyone????

    Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    When installing my Conexant modem using method A or B I get this error:

    WARNING: Error inserting hsfosspec (/lib/modules/2.6.15-27-386/misc/hsfosspec.ko): Invalid module format
    WARNING: Error inserting hsfbasic2 (/lib/modules/2.6.15-27-386/misc/hsfbasic2.ko): Invalid module format
    WARNING: Error inserting hsfengine (/lib/modules/2.6.15-27-386/misc/hsfengine.ko): Invalid module format
    FATAL: Error inserting hsfserial (/lib/modules/2.6.15-27-386/misc/hsfserial.ko): Invalid module format

    Apparently this occurs during the "sudo modprobe hsfserial" command. Any ideas?

    Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    Hello,

    I had one more thred for the same problem. Here is the link to the thred http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=249078
    I am using Kubuntu and Kernel Version is 2.16.15.23
    Can some one help.
    On the thred I have posted complete details about the errors I got while using the methog A and B.
    The modem is working fine with free linmodem driver. So I am almost there with some minor mistake I am doing. Is it because I dont have the debhelper package.

    If that is the case can some one suggest where I can download it.

    Thanks

    Nitin

    Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    I've tried the Method A on my Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper and it depends on debhelper 4.0.0, but i can't find any debhelper on the synaptic, and the debhelper version now is 5.x.x

    Sir Matchless, we have the same modem and i've tried the method B, still doesnt work

    Well--I've tried just about every way I can think of to get my smartlink to work in Edgy--I get stopped every time building the slamr module--code looks like--

    Re: Howto Conexant and Smartlink modem

    hi autocrosser,

    I'm not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try. I'm assuming '/home/dean/Desktop/slmodem-2.9.11-20051101' is where you unpacked the linmodems driver and 'dean' is your user ID. If not, you will have to change the 1st statement, and maybe put 'sudo' ahead of the 2nd and 3rd statements.

    1. back-up and open the original amrmo_init.c file:
    Code:
    cd /home/dean/Desktop/slmodem-2.9.11-20051101/drivers
    cp amrmo_init.c amrmo_init.c.unpatched
    gedit amrmo_init.c
    2. now go to line 704, you will probably see the following code:
    Code:
    MODULE_PARM(debug,"i");
    3. you need to change this to:
    Code:
    module_param(debug, int, 1);
    Note that 'module_param' is lowercase.

    4. save and exit.

    5. you will have to do the same thing for 'st7554.c'. Open the file 'st7554.c' using gedit, look for "MODULE_PARM(debug, "i");" and apply the same patch as above.

    6. try compiling again.

    I encountered this problem while trying out FC5 (kernel 2.6.17-xx), but since I don't have it installed anymore, I'm just doing this from memory and from the info you posted. I'm currently using Ubuntu Dapper 6.06, which uses an earlier kernel version, so I can't reproduce the exact error.

    Please post a feedback coz I'm very interested in this topic. My modem is also smartlink so I'll probably meet this problem in the future if I upgrade.

    Thanks for trying Duncan--

    I patched both files--now the amrmo file passes ok---but I get an error with the st7554.c file----

    make: *** [drivers] Error 2

    The line refers to the USB Modem option--any ideas on a fix?

    Added: I tried with the "new" amrmo file & the unpatched 7554 file--got exactly the same result--

    OK--just tried by deleting the 1153 line (owner-MODULE) with the patched 7554.c file & the driver built & I sudo make install (d) it--I'll test to see if it works--if so, I'll post both patched files for everyone.
