I manage to install Ubuntu Linux, Ver 9.04 Desktop Edition. I am a new user
switching from Windows to Linux. The new OS is very amazing to me.
But I have a problem, I am using *Prolink 56K V.92 Modem* (model no:
1456PVC/R). I scanned the modem chipset with *scanModem tool, please find
the attachment*. Could somebody to help me to get a *right modem driver file

Linux version 2.6.28-11-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.3.3 (Ubuntu 4.3.3-5ubuntu4) ) #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009
scanModem update of: 2009_07_02
The dialer utility package WVDIAL does not appear to be installed on your System.
Please read Modem/DOCs/wvdial.txt
There are no blacklisted modem drivers in /etc/modprobe* files
Potentially useful modem drivers now loaded are:
Attached USB devices are:

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

The PCI slot 00:0b.0 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.

For candidate modem in: 00:0b.0
0780 Communication controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. HSF 56k Data/Fax Modem
Primary device ID: 14f1:2f30
Support type needed or chipset: hsfmodem
For owners of a Dell PCs with Conexant HSF modems, a driver source package with full speed enabled is available, but requires driver compiling. Read DOCs/Conexant.txt
Start at http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/downloads-license.php to find the
hsfmodem package matching your System. For several Linux distros, there are
precompiled drivers matched to specific kernels. These have within the FileName,
your KernelVersion: 2.6.28_11_generic
They can be found through http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php
A more precise location may be given a few paragraphs below.
If an EXACT Match with your your KernelVersion is not found, one of the
"Generic packages with source" near the bottom of the page must be used.
Downloaded packages must be moved into the Linux partition (home folder is OK)
and unzipped with:
The installation command for a .deb suffic packages is, with root/adm permission:
sudo dpkg -i hsf*.deb
while for .rpm suffix it is, with:
rpm -i hsf*.rpm
Under Linux unpack with:
$ unzip hsfmodem*.zip
Then install with:
$ sudo dpkg -i hsfmodem*.deb
Subsequently, the modem should be found with
$ sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
Edit in your personal information with:
$ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
and try dialing out with:
$ sudo wvdial.
See DOCs/Testing.txt for details.
Completed candidate modem analyses.
The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev
Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.3.3
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.3.3
The patch utility is needed and is needed for compiling ALSA drivers, and possibly others.
Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.3
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-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
Checking pppd properties:
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 277352 2009-02-21 01:25 /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
In case of a message like:
Warning: Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied
Read Modem/DOCs/YourSystem.txt concerning other COMM channels: eth0
Which can interfere with Browser naviagation.
Don't worry about the following, it is for experts should trouble shooting be necessary.
