Hi,

Barry just noticed a problem with latest puppyserialdetect:
http://www.puppylinux.com/news/comments.php?y=07&m=06&entry=entry070608-031112

Here is a version that'll maybe revert to the original detection scheme.

Version 1.1f:
ADDED README file.
ADDED /dev/ttySX node creation if necessary.
ADDED scan ttyS0 - ttyS4 (inclusive)
REMOVED optimization that might have skipped over a serial modem.
INCLUDES binaries and source code.

Great! But, I'm away from home for 5-6 days and don't have access to a serial modem. Will test as soon as possible.

Ok Barry Smile

If anyone would like to try out this version, please post if it works or not with your serial modem or internal PCI modem ( /dev/ttyS4 is supposed to be internal PCI modem on some computers), also let us know what make/model it is. If the progam works, it will output a line identifying the modem e.g.:
Type:modem|Port:/dev/ttyS4|Speed:14400

Yes, testers are wanted!
Just to clarify though, if you do have a internal PCI modem, we are only concerned with a true hardware modem -- that's all 'puppyserialdetect' will detect. There aren't too many true-hardware PCI modems around, certainly they are no longer made, and you are only likely to find one in a PC ....how long ago.... 5 years old?

There are apparently some true hardware USB modems, but we havn't got to the point of autodetecting them yet. Except for some models, I'm working on that right now.

Doesn't detect nor the internal modem nor a PCMCIA one.
Only mice's, but as far as I know they aren't serial.
One them is a touchpad.
Code:
sh-3.00# puppyserialdetect
Type:PS2-mouse|Port:/dev/input/mice
Type:PS2-mouse|Port:/dev/input/mice
sh-3.00#

Hi Béèm,

Are you sure you are running the file that you download?
Normally you have to run it with a ./ prefix, like: ./puppyserialdetect
Code:
sh-3.00# puppyserialdetect
sh-3.00# ./puppyserialdetect
Type:USB-mouse|Port:/dev/input/mice
sh-3.00#


Above you can see that I get two different outputs, from the two different versions on the system, (version with Puppy 2.13 does not detect my usb mouse).

jesse,

i tried ./puppyserialdetect, with pup2.16, and it didn't detect modem on ttyS0. the modem wizard with pup2.16 also doesn't recognise a modem on ttyS0, but if i save, then it's OK. (modemwizard with pup1.08 does see the modem).

No joy with my old Asus PC (500MHz) with external serial modem connected to Com1 (/dev/ttyS0). It does detect the serial mouse (PS/2):
Code:

sh-3.00# ./puppyserialdetect
Type:PS2-mouse|Port:/dev/input/mice
sh-3.00#

Let me know if there's something I can run to show you what the hardware is. It's a 3Com US Robotics 56K Faxmodem

... I should perhaps have added that that was done with Puppy 2.14.

I get exactly the line that jeffrey got back. My external serial modem is a "3com us robotics 56k voice faxmodem"

The CD I'm running puppy off is remastered with Dougal's program and I accepted the option to customise the iso for this machine (keyboard, mouse).

I'm using puppy 2.16. The modem wizard and wvdial both find the modem I mentioned. It's on ttyS0.

Hi Jesse,
I have downloaded the "puppyserialdetect-1.1f and
went thro' the process of what I thought was an install, every thing
looked like an install, and after a reboot I checked I don't think it
loaded, Please advise how to load and check that it loaded.

Cheers Tui

Jesse,
I'm finally home and able to test my serial modem. No joy I'm afraid. 1.1f does not detect it, 1.0 does. It's a plain-vanilla ordinary external serial hardware modem on ttyS0.

My pci sound card died so I replaced it with the original device:
Code:
pci bus 0x0002 cardnum 0x0a function 0x00: vendor 0x14f1 device 0x2f00
 Conexant HSF 56k HSFi Modem

This too is not detected. Nor is it detected by the modem wizard. Is it the kind of modem that is supposed to be detected?
