OpenSUSE Hardware :: Setting Up Of Analog Fax/Modem Card - Internal - Options ?
Nov 27, 2010
I just started messing around with openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit version, KDE environment).
My desktop computer has an internal fax/modem card (PCI version, mod. USR5610C). I am very confident that this card works with Linux and U.S. Robotics guarantees that much on their web site.
I connect to the Internet via DSL but I am attempting to set up the internal analog modem card as a back up should the DSL line be temporarily down. I went to YaST -> Modem and I see that my card was detected as "U.S. ROBOTICS 56K FAX INT Modem Not configured". I pressed Edit and the Modem Parameters page says that the device is in "/dev/ttyS4". I am not sure that this is indeed where the modem is located (is there a way to make sure?) but I accepted it and proceeded to entering the name of my Internet service provider, the access phone number, user name, and password. So far, so good -- I think!
Eventually, I come to a window where YaST2 wants to install the following:
* jack Jack-Audio Connection Kit v. 1.9.5-2.8
* smpppd SuSE Meta PPP Daemon v. 1.60.46-1.1.1
So far I have not installed them because of the Jack-Audio Connection Kit software. Do I really need to install it in order to get the modem working? The reason I am being careful is that I just spent weeks and weeks in trying to get my audio card (ASUS Xonar DX 7.1, PCI-E) to work with openSUSE and I sure do not want to mess things up and start all over again!
I am having trouble getting my USB-Dvb-Analog-Hybrid-TV-Card running with openSuse 11.1. (I already tried a lot of instructions I found on the net but none of them worked.) For example, when I try to install em28xx-new, compiling will work, but when modprobeing:
I have a Centos 5.4 server running kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5PAE. It has an internal modem, and I need to be able to issue AT commands from a script to the modem. I need to simply dial a number and hang up. The relevant piece of my script is:
With an external modem, this works no problem. With an INTERNAL modem, the call never goes out. I fired up minicom to make sure the modem was working correctly, and if I issue those AT commands from within minicom, everything works great.
While minicom was running, I noticed a peculiar fact: WHILE minicom is running, the script works from the command line, and I can see all the AT commands and OK's in minicom, (minicom acts as a monitor). When I exit minicom, the script stops working. It appears minicom is creating a bridge between the com port and the modem itself. So, what is minicom doing that I'm unaware of?
The server's sole function is to run asterisk as a voicemail server (avaya wanted well into 6 figure territory to implement this....). This script is to dial an avaya FAC to turn the voicemail message lights on and off on the end users' phones.
I just installed 11.2, and discovered when I went to setup my Logitech Marble Trackball, that there was no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. After some Googleing, I created one using sax2, Edited it to add the appropriate parameters to enable scrolling using the ball, and all works great.
My question is if there is a more "correct" way to change the parameters, as the mouse parameters are obviously stored somewhere on the machine.
BTW, for those with a Marble Trackball, all you need to know about the xorg.conf setup can be found here:
How do I configure my modem without setting a service provider? When I try to configure my modem I can't get past the page for setting my internet provider. I have DSL and only use a modem for faxing. I'm running SUSE 11.3 32bit with KDE 4.5.2 and the modem is a BCM4212.
I have just gotten a Verizon Pantech UML290 usb 4g modem. According to the following post at the verizon forum this is workable in Linux. 4G LTE Data-stick Mac/Linux/Windows-other authentication information. - Verizon Wireless Community I am using SuSE 11.3 x64. Some of the settings they call for I can't find where the configurations should go, APN, CID, Model? Further into this above post, there are examples of success in Ubuntu and Fedora.
I have installed the modem via YaST2 under Network/Modem but to no success. I am running Qinternet to control the connection. I have been using this same setup with the previous modem a Pantech UM175 usb 3g modem. Below is some information I pulled to start the process:
I'm running openSUSE 11.4 on an HP 630 laptop with KDE. Everything works fine but cards inserted into the internal SD card reader are not read, and from what I can tell the reader is not recognized at all by openSUSE on my system. The reader does not appear listed in hardware information and is not listed with the command fdisk -l . There appear to be no references at all to the reader. The reader is recognized, however, on a live USB of Linux Mint 11, where the model is listed as "Generic - xD/SD/M.S." (the vendor too), revision 1.00. It is listed as an SCSI Controller scsi5. Typing lsscsi in the termal of openSUSE provides the following:

This week I got a TV card partially working in Squeeze. It is a PCHDTV HD-5500, sold for use with Linux [URL]. It has a Conexant chipset and open drivers. The drivers are already in the current (Sept/Oct. 2010) Squeeze kernel, 2.6.3x.
TV reception is working with Xine and VLC (probably would be fine with mplayer too). My question is, how do I get video from the inputs on the back of the card?
There's a multi-thing that takes inputs from composite or S-video. I have one of those digital-to-analog boxes from the US TV conversion, and its composite output is plugged into the composite input of the card. Looking at the players, however, it is not obvious which device (or other input) to choose, or what settings should be. How can I make a player get the video from the plugged-in analog source?
I'm new to Ubuntu. Recently bought a lenovo x100e netbook and installed ubuntu. Is there any Ubuntu Expert based in Cape Town that can assist to configure my internal 3g modem and a few other minor issues.
Is it possible to use connect to the Internet using my internal modem which i have in my laptop using debian.. Please do help.Ofcourse i can do this with the windows 7 which is also installed in my lap.. I have a MSI laptop with model no. vr440..[color=#404040][/color]
I've just installed ubuntu on my father's netbook hp 210 mini 3g with internal 3g modem. At the beginning everything was fine - system automatically detected modem and asked for PIN code. I was very surprised but during download some updates connection broke.. and since then ubuntu doesn't detect modem. I have even reinstalled system
In the broadband connection wizard there is no device detected. I'm on ubuntu 11.04, but on the 10.10 was the same problem.
I've got a problem with my 3G modem [Huawei E122]. It has internal storage and kernel assigns a device [/dev/sdX] to it. Because of that, every second time my machine will not boot - kernel panic - as my usb hdd gets assigned /dev/sdb instead of /dev/sda. I cannot use LABEL nor UUID in root= kernel parameter, as it is only available when using initrd, and I can't use it - I am using Debian on my router - mips architecture machine. I have to prevent this from happening, as my router has to start everyday and I have to be sure it works ok. I don't have physical access to restart it when something goes wrong. I don't use my modem internal storage, there's no SD card inserted. However kernel detects the reader and loads it. I can not prevent loading od usb drivers since my hdd is on USB as well.
With openSuSE 11.3 the (analog) sound is very low as compared to the previous release (11.2). I have installed all I could think of like ALSA, but still no success. The installation uses the internal sound card of the M4A785-M mobo with the VIA VT1708S chipset.
I am currently running slackware 13.37 in virtualbox on my Dell 1558. I would really like to install it for real to my HDD to get the speed benefit. My only way to connect to the internet is via my internal Dell UMTS modem. Will this work after the install or do I need to take some precautions before the time and download the right apps files now while I have access?
My hard drive is partitioned in 12 partitions (for various reasons) anyways I am having two issues when I mount my data partition. Firstly I can only write/edit files on the partition when I am under root. Second when it mounts it uses the drive's UUID as the mount name in /media (so it is horribly long!) is there a way I can force it to mount under a different name? I tried right clicking on the drive like I am able to do in Ubuntu and set a "mount point" but Fedora does not have this option.
I have a problem with ssh, in that it's extremely slow when using putty to connect from Windows. A bit of googling suggested that I should use -u0 as a startup option since there's no DNS entry for this machine.
So, at the risk of sounding stupid, how do I put this options in to the /etc/init.d/ssh file? I tried adding it in the the "set" part but got an error, tried adding another "set" line and got an error and tried adding it to the first command there, but also got an error! Where does it go?
I'm running Ubuntu Server 9.10 and I'm looking to setup an FTP server. I have SSH running beautifully and it's accessible from any computer whether it be inside the network or coming in from the internet (provided you have the administrator username and password ). I've tried Proftpd and vsftpd and have failed miserably so far. Which FTP server application do you think I should go with and how could I go about setting it up through my SSH connection?
My current setup is this: - Ubuntu Server 9.10 with Fixed IP of 192.168.1.100 - 500GB Hard Drive - SDA1 = 512MB ext2 /boot - SDA2 = 2GB swap - SDA3 = 20GB ext4 / - SDA5 = 438GB ext4 /home - One User (Username = administrator) - Full SSH Capabilities - IP Address to DNS provided by www.dyndns.org - WRT120N Router with Remote Access and Port 22 Open
I basically want to set up a secure FTP server that anyone on the internal network can access as well as anyone from the internet (as long as they have a username and password). I want to setup a username and password for each user so that they all have read/write access to the same folder in my /home partition (I'll call it FTPSHARE).
I received an update yesterday and now my analog clock plasmoid is no longer functional. It's strange too because when I change a setting in the plasmoid, it'll magically come to life. I ran plasma-desktop in terminal to catch an error output, but nothing came up.

I am running Debian 6.0.1a on a Gateway SX-2841 (64-bit) and I would like to set up the Motorola SBV5220 modem using USB because the Ethernet port is used for a LAN (not on Internet). I am trying to follow the Cable Modem HOWTO. /var/log/messages lists CONFIG_USB_NET_CDCETHER=m, not exactly as shown in the HOWTO. lsmod does not list anything like either CDCEther or usbnet. I am hesitant to try running modprobe until somebody says this is the right thing to do.
I installed 10.10, I'm using a HP tower with a cisco usb ae1000 modem. I have been on Linux all of 12 hours. I had installed on a old laptop, and hard wired to the router. I really liked the OS. And Long short I killed the laptop, literally.
So I partitioned the family tower, but I cannot connect wirelessly. And to run hard wire to the router would mean a complete tear down of my desk and set up in the living room area, and that will not help out the marriage long/short term.
on the internet connection and I gone through the panels trying to set up the connection but no luck. I'm running Vista and Ubuntu 10.10. I using vista to post here now.
How do I get it to find the wireless router and set up my connection without being hardwire to the router itself.
Installed new wireless modem and router. how to connect it to my Ubuntu operating system. So far I can only find a place to enter information but don't know where to find it. It asks for "SSID"-"Mode Infrastructure"-"BSSID"- "Device Mac Address "Cloned Mac Address" and "MTU Automatic". where to find this information or if I am even in the right window to setup this new modem.
