Writing DOCs/Intel.txt

 1057:3052 has a Motorola chipset, poorly supported by Motorola itself
 However Zello discovered that drivers written to support Smartlink  modems do support the 1057:3052 chipset!!
 It sufficed to add 1057:3052 to the list of modem cards recognized by the Smartlink slamr driver.
 There is a ungrab-winmodem driver used in conjunction with slamr, which must have 1057:3052
 similarly added. See messages from Zello:
 	http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-seventh/msg00846.html
 	http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-seventh/msg00848.html
 and Alvaro Aguirre about the ungrab-winmodem fix:
	http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-seventh/msg00990.html
 For general guidance on ungrab-winmodem + slamr usage, read the DOCs/Smartlink.txt

The modem is supported by the Smartlink 
plus the slmodemd helper utility.  Read the
DOCs/Smartlink.txt and Modem/DOCs/YourSystem.txt for follow through guidance.


For 2.6.22.5-31-bigsmp compiling drivers is necessary. As of October 2007 the current packages at
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/  are the
ungrab-winmodem-20070505.tar.gz and slmodem-2.9.11-20080126.tar.gz

 High Definition Audio (HDA) cards MAY host a modem chip in their Subsystem, 
 and many are supported by the ALSA audio+modem driver snd-hda-intel
 A modem was not detected on HDA card 8086:27d8.
 If another modem card is present, then most likely 8086:27d8 does not host a modem.
 If another modem card has not been detected, then possibilities are:
	1) A Conexant modem chip is present on 8086:27d8, as Conexant chips
 are frequently not detectable by ALSA diagnostics
	2) The modem may be of the older non-PCI Controller Chipset (hardware) type.

Support can likely be achieved through two mutually exclusive alternatives:
1) The hsfmodem software for Conexant chipset modems: Read DOCs/Conexant.txt
The following ALSA alternative CANNOT work with Conexant modems.

2) An ALSA modem driver plus slmodemd.  Read DOCs/Smartlink.txt for details, and
to test get the package SLMODEMD.gcc4.2.tar.gz from:

 Completed candidate modem analyses.

 The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

 Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.2.1
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.2.1


 
 Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
   make utility - /usr/bin/make
   Compiler version 4.2
   linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.22.5-31-bigsmp/build

 However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
 in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in  /usr/include/ .
 For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default. 
 Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
 In not included on your install CD, search for them at http://packages.ubuntu.com
 or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
 When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.




If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$  apt-get update
$  apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb


Checking pppd properties:
	-rwxr-xr-x 1 root dialout 298784 sep 21  2007 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:
    http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/linmodems/archive-sixth/msg02637.html

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
	$ su - root  (not for Ubuntu)
         chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
	 chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
