Completed candidate modem analyses.
The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev
Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.4.3
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.4.3
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
Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.4
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.32-21-generic/build
or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.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
When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-devFor Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:
If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.comFor guidance on FAX usage, get from http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/ get faxing.tar.gz It has samples for a modem using port /dev/ttySL0, which must be changed to match your modem's port.
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:
To enable dialout without Root permission do:
$ su - root (not for Ubuntu)
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
