    Post Linux&Drivers??!!

    Hi,
    the main problem most users of Linux get is finding the drivers for their hardware.
    Facts::: My Motorola modem was not detected by Linux.

    *Going to the site of Red Hat, I found the following:::
    Driver for Motorola56kv90(everything is normal till now) data/fax .{End of the driver list}

    *Checking with my modem documentation, i found the following:::
    Motorola56kv90(Similar to the one found in Red Hat Site till now) data/fax/voice

    *On Motorola Site(I still have to hope to find it here who knows):::
    Driver for Motorola56kv90(everything is normal till now) data/fax compatible with Linx Red Hat 5.2 or newer Only.{End of the driver list}

    *On Linuxmodems.com:::
    same as Red Hat Site

    ISN'T A CRAZY WORLD???!!! .
    Can someone tell me now how can i manage to Connect to internet through my modem under Linux(if there is a way) because i found in a site that *nix use only the right drivers??, is it True??

    I just checked the page on the motorola-site.
    I can be wrong, but it seems to me that you can use the driver for 'SM56 Software Modem (Data/Fax) ' to make your modem work. If you follow the installation-instructions on that page you will be able to use your modem to connect to the internet.

    You will not be able to use the voice (answering machine)-function in linux, because there seems to be no linux-driver/prog for this function.

    Sorry for deceiving you Roleant
    but *nix OS accept only the right driver, if it doesn't has the right driver it won't even put in the non identified hardware...
    Moreover, a hardware for the is just like a file
    that' why Windows is still alive and used lol

    ok ..I know you have..data/fax/voice, but have you try driver data/fax?? you should try to use that driver..if you cannot find your driver for your data//fax/voice..better try then nothing.
    Maybe work..or maybe not working, but at least..you already try.

    Cheerss

    Dear and SwEeT_AnGeL,
    I did not want to say it directly but i did try the 2drivers(from red hat and motorola) too many times ...
    After reading your comments i decided to try again, 4hours in front of Linux tryin the drivers all over again for times and times but it was useless ...
    It seems like i was banned by my modem lol
    I hate saying that but m begenning to be hopeless( i feel not really ok when i am) ...
    Anyone who has a better idea will be always welcome...!!! fanks
