I never did get the cheapo 56k modem to work. lspci reports the
interrupt and the memory location for it, but no comms software seems
able to talk to the modem. I'm trying another one next week.
lspci is great, it shows you everything that the PCI devices report
themselves to be.
Bug question: is there a similar program for ISA? Something that will
snoop around and see what you've got?
The reason is, I just tried to test an old ISA modem that I _know_
works, but having ln -s'd each ttySn device to modem, I still cannot
get a squeak out of it, and not knowing what irq it thinks it ought to
be, nor what irq the system things it ought to assign, ditto memory,
is a pain in the ass. Some kind of device display would be nice. Is
there anything that does this kind of detection?
