Modems (GPRS/CDMA, POTS)
Switch on the Siemens MC45-Module by pressing
/dev/ttyS0 as modem device.
The necessary Init-String for entering the PIN-Code is eg
If you dial up to your provider via CDMA use these commands:
If you use GPRS:
(the last two commands are provider-dependent)
If you want to use the flybook as a mobile phone:
The ';' at the end makes it a voice call, so the modem doesn't wait for a
carrier and thus doesn't run into a timeout.
/dev/mixer1 you can adjust the volume (channels master,
To select the audio hardware (it's the default, just in case you change
To activate CLIP for incoming calls:
Then the Calling party's number is displayed between the RINGs.
All AT-commands for the MC45 (on the Siemens Website)
I didn't yet have the possibility to test this, since I have no POTS-line, but
so far everything compiles and loads well.
Download the driver from www.smlink.com.
Untar the archive, change into the new directory and run
make; make drivers; make install.
apt-get install sl-modem-daemon in Debian didn't work
because the hardware could not be detected.
load the module
# modprobe slamr
Choose your country from
# slmodemd --countrylist
Run the modem daemon
# slmodemd --country=AUSTRIA
Then use the device
/dev/ttySL0 as your modem device.
If you are successful with this driver please send me an e-mail.
Old Text, not working
Download the automatic installer from Linuxant. Run it as root, let it detect the modem and download the appropriate drivers.
Update: Here this doesn't work. The installer aborts with this error message:
hsfmc97ali: serial driver grabbed our device (00:03.0), reclaiming it..
HSF: ERROR: SILICON Laboratories or LUCENT AC97 modem detected!<3>
HSF: ERROR: This driver only supports CONEXANT devices<3>
HSF: ERROR: not a Conexant modem<3>
cnxthsf_cnxt_serial_add: ComCtrlOpen failed (1)
So I will go on looking for a working driver (though I probably will never need the POTS modem).
