------------ --------------  System information ------------------------
Mandrakelinux release 10.1 (Official) for i586
Kernel 2.6.8.1-12mdk on an i686 / 
 on System with processor: i686
 currently under kernel:   2.6.8.1-12mdk
 The kernel was assembled with compiler:  3.4.1
 with current System compiler GCC=3.4.1
    /usr/bin/gcc -> /etc/alternatives/gcc

Checking for kernel-headers needed for compiling.
Kernel-header resources are not evident.
Within your Linux distributions resources, search for package names with:
  linux-headers-2.6.8.1-12mdk
  kernel-source-2.6.8.1-12mdk
  linux-2.6.8.1-12mdk
One of which must be installed if compiling drivers to match kernel 2.6.8.1-12mdk proves necessary.
This is necessary for most modem drivers, through some Linux distributions provide some compiled drivers.
Within the output Modem/ folder, read CompilingDrivers.txt for details.

 The soft modem Subsystem operates under a controller
   8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4 
 capable of supporting under Linux AT LEAST modem Subsystem chips from manufacturers:

	Broadcom
	AgereSystems
	Conexant
	Intel
	Smartlink
 The Subsystem PCI id does not itself identify the modem Codec.
 snd-intel8x0m not present

 Beginning check for older ac97_codec modems.
 An older ac97_modem codec was not detected.

 Checking through information gathered from LinModem ARCHIVES
 From prior reports, the modem codec type of the Subsystem is: SIL27
 The Subsystem has an Agere Systens codec SIL27
 SmartLink software should support this modem
 == Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

 Under the controller 8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4 ,
 with modem subSystem 0e11:0860     
 Alternative supporting packages are the SmartLink slmodem-2.9.N using its proprietary slamr driver, 
 OR the Open Source snd-intel8x0m.ko driver included with recent 2.6.n kernel installations,
    complemented by the daemon, slmodemd,  of the slmodem-2.9.9-alsa.tar.gz package available at:
            http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/
    A major advantage is that driver compiling is not necessary upon kernel updates
.  The command sequence is:
    # modprobe snd-intel8x0m
    # slmodemd --alsa --country=YOURCOUNTRY hw:0 
   with the slmodemd providing for dynamic port creation:
         /dev/ttySL0 --> /dev/pts/N    
   and higher level functions.
 Read the slmodem package readme, Modem/Slmodem.txt and Modem/SoftModem.txt for details.
 
 For SuSE 9.2 users, there is an update  for driver slamr.ko loading during bootup. 
 To find it easily, search for "slamr" within  http://www.novell.com/linux/download/updates/92_i386.html
     

 SmartLink at http://www.smlink.com/ owns vendor IDs 163c, 2000, 2003, and 2004
 The official download site is:  http://www.smlink.com/main/index1.php?ln=en&main_id=40 ,
  but http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/ has older packages and new fixes.
      For the emerging 2.6.10 kernels, use the slmodem-2.9.9a.tar.gz  therefrom.
 Read Slmodem.txt  for details.
   
 == Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

 Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller free (HCF) modems, 537 soft modem
 and AC97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft modem Subsystems.
 These subSystems often have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler, rather than the chip provider.
 Download available drivers through:  http://developer.intel.com/design/modems/support/drivers.htm  with Intel-537 types at:

Analyzing information for PCMCIA device at PCI Bus 02:04.0
GREPping for an inserted PCMCIA modem with filter:        ommunication
 If a PCMCIA modem is currently inserted and the sockets activated by
    /etc/init.d/pcmcia start
 then the PCMCIA bridge is NOT transparent.

 If the modem is known to have a Lucent digital signal processing chipset,
 then PCMCIA.tar.gz variant assembled by Joern Wustenfeld is necessary,
 rather than the standard ltmodem-8.31a9.tar.gz at  http://ltmodem.heby.de/
