I have Rockvel 56,6 KB V90 Data Voice Fax. Linux doesn't detects him under Win u need to install some special drivers, can u tell where can i find them.
Rockwell modems typically use the Rockwell chipsets. These are winmodems. Rockwell refuses to release programming details about these chips, ergo there are officially NO Linux drivers for them.
For more info on those look at:
- Linux VooDoo (Ultimate Source for Linux Drivers?)
.... and at the Linux "Winmodem Support" Page (http://linmodems.org). NOTE: WWW.linmodems.org DOES NOT WORK. You must use "http://linmodems.org" if you want to see their web pages.
(I didn't know that and had to hunt down the URL through Google after trying several variations of www.linmodems.org, ...linmodem.or, ...linmodems.com, etc).
[ As of press time, you don't have to. http://www.linmodems.org/ worked just fine for me.
But while I have you here, I know that the Lucent (binary-only) driver was mentioned on the Debian mailing list for laptop users. After some messing with it, the user was actually successful in getting a usable modem. -- Heather ]
Gawd! A new millennium and I'm still getting Winmodem questions! (Please! No mail about how the new millenium doesn't start until 2001 --- I'm with Linus on this, I don't care. It's a tenth of one per cent different!)
