Hi,

This is probably a really easy one for you expert types, but I've given it a lot of points because I'm totally stuck.

How do I setup a modem under Linux? I have setup Red Hat 5.0, and got X-windows working, but now I would like to setup my modem (Diamond SupraExpress 56e Pro). Where can I get the drivers, what is the setup process?

Many thanks,

DanF

You should be alright as far as the drivers go, most modems use a standard AT commands use the modem.  If you want an easy way of setting the modem up, go to www.rpmfind.com and get the application XISP.i386.rpm. This is a GUI application for setting up your modem and dial-up profiles.

I got that rpm file, tried to install it and it sprung up an error saying it needed:
xforms >= 0.86
libforms.so.0.86

I found v0.88 of xforms.rpm, but can't find libforms.so

Any furthur suggestions?

FaffMan,

   You could find some ftp sites for D/L libforms library at following url:
http://tuxfinder.com/packages/searchdl.php3?name=libforms0.88_0.88.1.orig.tar.gz&country=US

   It's better you could take a look at Hardware-Howto, modem-Howto(not sure there's exist), and PPP-howto; which located under /usr/doc/HOWTO, if you have installed the extra documents. Here's the short comment: besides using xisp, kppp...etc, to setup your modem and ppp setting, run "modemtool" under shell to set your modem device link, then follow PPP-howto to generate your dial-up script.

   Regards.
