Failure on linux with my USB Modem
Ok then, not much fun over the last two days. Spent the time mostly on work – but I made good progress in understanding the emacs editor, a definite plus in one’s professional life :-).
Yesterday, I tried connecting my RD 7130 to my linux laptop, hoping to use it as a modem – but the results were not fruitful. Eventhough the modem was detected and the device also appeared on /dev folder as /dev/ttyUSB0, pppd kept compalining that ‘Can’t get terminal parameters – No such device’. The device was very much there. I googled to find that some people who upgraded to the latest kernel (2.6test) are facing this problem, but mine is anyway only 2.4.22. Could not figure out what the problem. Today, Ill use minicom to see whether I can really communicate with the device.
