Journal IO ERROR's Journal: Anyone know what kind of winmodem I have in my ThinkPad R40? 7

Help! I have an IBM ThinkPad R40 2681CU1 with one of those built in winmodems. Or I THINK it's a winmodem. Here's the lspci output:

I already tried the ltmodem-8.26 driver, and no dice. It doesn't even think there's a modem installed. Is that the right driver? Does it need a patch? What's the right driver for this modem?

Comments Filter:
  • Have you searched the mailing list archives at linux-thinkpad.org? Very useful list. You're bound to find answers there.
  • You probably already knew this, but for kernel 2.4, the driver can be downloaded here [smlink.com].

    Of course, it's kernel 2.4, but have you actually tried compiling it with 2.6? Maybe only a couple of lines need to be commented out, changed, whatever...

The wages of sin are high but you get your money's worth.

Working...
