Need help with Intel 82801DB ICH4 AC'97 Modem Controller

Hi, 

I have been trying to get my Intel 82801DB modem to work. I have SuSE 9.3 
installed and have been also using the KInternet tool to manage the various 
connections. I have tried Linuxant and Slmodem but have not managed to get 
anything that would take the phone line off hook to start dialing. 

I have attached the three files created by the scanmodem tool. I have been 
trying various things for two days now but not getting anywhere.

Any help will be appreciated. 

If this modem chip is not supported then perhaps some direction on how/what to 
look at to support it would be appreciated. 

Thanks,

Hi, 

On July 4 I sent in a request for help with the subject

"Need help with Intel 82801DB ICH4 AC'97 Modem Controller"

Is there anyone that can point me in a potential direction?
I keep trying different things but am not getting anywhere.

Thanks

Re: Is this list still active?

Marvin, 

Yes I received your message. Thank you for replying.

It appears to me that the Modem chipset that I have is Intel based, versus 
Conexant. Please correct me if I am wrong. I had previously tried the 
HSFmodem initially because some older version of scan tool seemed to detect 
it as a Conexant, so I hoped that it might be compatible but it did not seem 
to work. 

I have reattached the three files created by the scanmodem tool. I have been 
trying various things for several days now but not getting anywhere.

Antonio, 

I think that I have the slmodem compiled, see the following make file output.

I have some alsa installed but am not sure how my sound works, it just does.

samhaber-nb:/dev # rpm -qa | grep alsa
alsamodular-1.8.7-5
alsa-1.0.9-9.1
java-1_5_0-sun-alsa-1.5.0_07-1.1

alsa-tools-1.0.8-4
alsa-devel-1.0.8-17
FA_clalsadrv-1.0.1-4
alsa-firmware-1.0.8-5

Thanks,

Hi, 

I downloaded the alsa-lib and alsa-driver from the 
http://www.alsa-project.org/   website. I followed the install instructions 
but these still do not show in the list from command 'rpm -qa | grep alsa'
brobably since these are not "RPMs"

I am now going back to your previous email and try the HSFmodem again. 
Antonio's last email also encourages a retry of the HSFmodem.

Thanks,

Re: Is this list still active?

Jacques,

1- I find these messages difficult to understand. Thank you for interpreting 
them for me. I had previously sent the same information to 
support <at> linuxant.com to ask if this modem was supported by them but I did not 
get an answer. 

2- I have installed 
hsfmodem-7.47.00.01full_k2.6.11.4_21.12_default-1suse.i586.rpm.zip
which I downloaded from 
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-suse-x86.php
Then as root I ran 
hsfconfig -a

and connected with 
 wvdial

My LAN is unplugged and I believe that my wireless WLAN is Off.
I have already checked a web page and will send this email through the 
dial-up.  

This seemed fairly easy this time (I had tried the hsfmodem several other 
times but it never worked this well), those were all different versions. 

3- If you want me to re-run Scanmodem and send the info in for your database 
then let me know exactly which version to download and run. I think I have 
about 4 different versions from various sites over the past year. All these 
versions give slightly different output, least of which is different numbers 
of files.
