I am completely new to Puppy although not new to linux.I was pointed to puppy from knoppix because of the readily available lucent modem driver from your repository in ibiblio.org.
Now what I want to know is which ltmodem package belongs to what version of puppy?I tried one and it won't install (using insmod -f) because it was a different kernel from what I was using. this is aside from the several lines of error after that.
I have to insmod manually as it is obvious that I cannot connect to the net using puppy without the modem driver

I presume that you used the PupGet package manager to install it -- if not, you did wrong.

Puppy 1.0.4 uses the 2.4.29 kernel (as announced in the News page), therefore use Pupget to uninstall the wrong one, then install the correct one, which is named "ltmodem-8.26a9-k2.4.29".
Then reboot Puppy.
Then run the Modem Wizard.

Tried that and got into the point wherein there was ttyLT0 button but clicking this button to test resulted in "failed"message-something to do with noirq assigned and retry also failed-in other words no modem in the ports.

I have been running Puppy 1.0.2 Mozilla because it works. I just now did a Type 2 hard drive install of Chubby Puppy 1.0.4 over top the 1.0.2 install (new, not upgrade).

I used the Pupget manager to install ltmodem-8.26a9-k2.4.29 (plus the rest of the OO packages and Perl) and rebooted. I now have the ttyLT0 button in the modem setup, but the test fails. (Same as the previous poster.)

It is an internal modem on a desktop...

The ltmodem driver worked in 1.0.2 and it works for FC3 so I know the modem is compatable, but...

What it the recommended next step?

I will probably see my friend (my dad actually) on Thursday, and see what is happening with the Lucent modem -- he has a ibm laptop with internal lucent modem, which i did test sometime ago, back at 1.0.0 or 1.0.1 and it worked then.

Barry,

Any word on checking this issue out? I just got back from a business trip and haven't had a chance to check out all the resources, so if the solution has been posted elsewhere, I'm sorry.

THANKS!
Babbs

I borrowed the ibm laptop from my dad, with the Lucent modem.

1.
I booted Windows and downloaded the lucent pupget package from the Puppy pupget packages download site.

2.
Booted Puppy live-CD.

3.
Ran the PupGet package manager, installed the Lucent pupget package -- can't remember if i'm confusing with something else, but if for some strange reason it isn't listed, you can install it as an "alien" package.

4.
Ran the Modem Wizard, and the "ttyLT0" button was there.
Clicked the button to test it -- and it failed.
Anyway, just ignored that and pressed the "SAVE" button.

5.
Rebooted Puppy, ran GKdial, setup the account, and dialed out,
connected to my isp no problem.

If you get to that last step and it does seem to be detecting the modem
but not dialing out, edit /etc/ppp/chatscripts/dodo, and change the line with the modem initialisation string to this:
Code:
"" "ATZ"


So, there's a problem with the Modem Wizard -- I haven't had time to fix
that yet.

Try those steps, let me know what happens.

Barry,

I am confident that I can get to the ttyLT0 button so I will start there.

Success or not, I'll post the results here as soon as I can do it (probably Thrusday evening).

THANKS!
Babbs
