Hi all,

---------------------------------
Modem Info:

Conexant PCI HSF 56k Softmodem

MODEL: Rockwell International PCI HSF 56k Data/Fax/Voice/Spkp (w/Handset) Modem (Rev 01)

PCI ID: 127a:2015
CLASS: 0780

----------------------------------

Have managed to get my Conexant HSF 56k Softmodem installed under Puppy (v2.13) - fully up and working - including full speed 'licence key' and other required info .. Very Happy

Well the best speed I've ever been able to get here is around 43kbs - normal is around 34-36kbs .. Wink

Followed - jcoder24's - guide to get everything working - thanks jcoder24 .. Smile

I did have some probs early on installing the driver - it did install but it came up in mode - "crippled" .. Exclamation... Eventually found that I needed a few extra files/libs to get it to 'correctly' install .. Mad

The files needed were:
---------------------
sysctl
libproc-3.2.5.so
ls
libacl.so.1
libattr.so.1
----------------------

You'll probably need to get them from another linux distro (if you run any other as well as Puppy) - or "google" for them .. Question

Someone asked if these 'extra' files need to be for the kernel version used in the 'installed' Puppy - BUT - I used ones from my other distro (MEPIS) which runs on kernel version 2.6.15-1 - so I would say if you stay with a kernel no earlier than version 2.6.12 + - then you should have no probs .. Exclamation

Once I had these extra files installed - the Linuxant driver 'correctly' installed - then AFTER I did a REBOOT - (NOTE: you MUST DO REBOOT 1st) - using the 'rxvt' terminal - I ran the command '/usr/sbin/hsfconfig' to complete the modem setup steps - finally managed to insert my 'email' address & 'country' & 'licence key' data - and BINGO everything works properly now .. Laughing Laughing

BE CAREFUL : before you install the 'ls' file - you will need to "rename" the existing 'ls' command file in folder - '/usr/sbin' to say '/usr/sbin/ls_old~' - then install the new 'ls' file ....... REASON : the existing 'ls' command used is really the BUSYBOX 'ls' command, whereas the new 'ls' command is the 'standard LINUX 'ls' command ... BE WARNED .. if you don't do the rename there will be a clash - may lock up your system ... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

AFTER: once you have installed and setup the Linuxant driver & got your modem working properly - you will need to uninstall the new 'ls' command file and RENAME your old one back to it's original ... OTHERWISE .. Puppy may have probs that I don't know about .. Exclamation Exclamation

Hope this helps ..

Hi,
I tend to agree with vicio1. This sounds like a very good work around but is over the heads of most of us poor noobs. This modem chipset is used in a lot of laptops {like mine} so I'm sure this would be a VERY popular fix.
craftybytes...If you could provide a VERY simplified walkthru and maybe include a zip of the exact files you used I'm sure a lot of us technologically challenged linux wannabees would be eternally grateful.
Thanks,
Bobby

Sorry about not getting back to you guys earlier - have been out a fair bit these past few days so have not had much time for the net - just saw your post today ..

Will try to put something together that is a little bit more detailed as to how I got it to work AND hopefully will also include a .zip of the extra files that were required ..

Will try to get back asap..

OK - I'm going to try and make this as simple as I can for you all .. Wink

You will find attached 4 x 'zipped' files for the hsf modem drivers install to Puppy .. Arrow
==========================================================

EDIT::::: due to upload file size limits - now have 8 x 'zipped' files for install .. Embarassed

=========================================================

Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question
EDIT::: <<<<<<<<< PLEASE NOTE >>>>>>>>>
These are ONLY for use with the - Conexant PCI HSF 56k Softmodem; Type: PCI ID: 127a:2015 - type internal winmodems and ONLY for kernel - 2.6.18.1 - not for any other kernel .. Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question Question

Download and 'unzip' each file to a 'temp' folder in - '/my-documents' - in puppy ..
Now you should have 4 x 'sub-folders' :- /etc, /extra, /lib, & /usr ..

All that needs to be done now is to "copy" the 'folders/files' within these 'sub-folders' into the respectively named 'folders' in Puppy ..

As an example : -

1. copy the - 'hsfmodem' - folder (complete) in - '/etc' - into Puppy's own - '/etc' - folder ..

2. copy all the files found in the sub-folders - '/bin, /lib, & /sbin' - in the - '/extra' - folder into the respectively named - '/bin, /lib, & /sbin' - folders in Puppy ..

NOTE: you will need to rename the command - 'ls' - in Puppy's - '/bin' - folder BEFORE you do the copy of the new - 'ls' - file across to this folder .. Question Question

3. copy the - 'extra' - folder (complete) found in - '/lib/modules/2.6.18.1/' - sub-folder under the - '/lib' - folder to Puppy's own - '/lib' - folder into the same - '/lib/modules/2.6.18.1/ '- sub-folder ..

4. copy the files/folders found in the - '/usr' - folder into Puppy's own same folders and sub-folders ..

Just make sure that when you copy the files into the - '/sbin' - folder in Puppy that they are 'executable' - if not make them so ..

Now all you need to do is REBOOT puppy - then in an 'rxvt' terminal - type :

hsfconfig -c ....."to set the Region "

&

hsfconfig -l .... "to enter your own licence key "

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you will AGAIN need to REBOOT puppy - then all should be OK..

NOTE: as I stated in my original post - don't forget to RENAME the - 'ls' - command back to the original - otherwise you may have a clash in Puppy ..YHBW .. Twisted Evil

Mow just use the modem connect icon on Puppy's desktop to start up and configure Gkdial - it all should hopefully run as expected .. Cool

As there is a max limit for uploads - I have had to split some of these - 'folders' - up into smaller - 'chunks' - sorry about that ..

The 'unzipping' & 'copying' of files/folders should still be the same for all the downloaded zipped files ..

Any probs - let me know ..

Hi crafty, its me again.

I have tried all that you have posted in both forum sections and still to no avail, on one machine it says it cannot find a modem on another it is back to not finding the region.

I have tried half a dozen hsf modems that have come from working systems and scanmodem identifies them as:

'For candidate modem in PCI bus: 00:0a.0
Class 0780: 14f1:2f00 Class 0780: 14f1:2f00
Primary PCI_id 14f1:2f00
Support type needed or chipset: hsfmodem'

I'm not sure what to try next, different modems maybe.

Thanks for all the help so far.

Hi Ian,

Sorry to hear that you have not had any success as yet ..

Just to clarify though - the files I posted above are for use ONLY with - Conexant PCI HSF 56k Softmodem; PCI ID: 127a:2015; Class: 0780 - type modem cards ..

The files are ALREADY "compiled" using the Puppy kernel - 2.6.18.1 - and the Linuxant drivers for the - 127a:2015 - modem card - so will not work for any other PCI ID: version of card - even though the Class: 0780 - maybe the same ..

Your scanmodem report gives the modem as:

PCI_id 14f1:2f00; Class: 0780


As can be seen - my modem is - 127a:2015 - but yours is - 14f1:2f00 - thus the above posted driver files will not work ..

Sorry but it looks like you will have to do a "compile" of the Linuxant files with your modem in place so as the 'correct' drivers can be installed ..

I see that you live in Queensland - so maybe send me a PM and we can further discuss what we could do about this for you.. Maybe if you have a few of these modem cards - you could post one to me and I'll see what I can do about 'compiling' the drivers for you and send them back on a CD when returning the modem card..

Happy to help if I can ..
