I recently installed SuSE 7.2 but have run into problems with my modem.
This is my first attempt at SuSE so bear with me.
(please reply directly as i am not yet on the list...thanks!)
I have checked that my modem is supported on the suse website and it says it it supported in the kernel, which i reckon is good.
In KDE when i check in KDE Control Centre under System -> Communication Controllers
it lists my correct modem - HCF 56k PCI Modem (Communication Controller).
However when i try to configure my modem through YAST2 it does not see it, and says
"using unrecognised modem if present".
I have set my modem as /dev/ttys0 is this right?
i can choose from /dev/modem (default), /dev/ttyAcm0 (1/2/3) or ttyS0 (1/2/3).
When i try to connect to my provider (Eircom - subscription account) with KInternet,
i get the following message:
Modem not responding.
BTW modem works fine through windozs.
Anyone have any ideas as this is the only thing holding me back from dumping windoze completely.
Thanks in advance.
