winmodems

Hello,

I am new to QNX and it looks very nice, I am currently running Red-Hat 7.1
on my laptop. My question is:

I have a Lucent LT winmodem on my laptop :frowning:
Lucky for me Lucent has made drivers for Linux, so I am able to use me
winmodem (now Linmodem) on my Linux box. Will this work on QNX?? is there
any way to convert or use these drivers?

Thank you in advanced
Yaron

Linux drivers will not work under QNX, neither would it be very easy to
convert them, you would have to write an entirely new driver for QNX

And worse, the Lucent driver is binary only so you are doubly out of luck.

Get a real modem
Your gonna run into other issues anyways =(
Lucent drivers are BINARY only in linux… and lucent will probably not give
QNX the information…
Sorry to be the messenger of bad news.
Iv run into this issue with every nonwindows OS it seems…

I had an interesting experience recently, and this is as
good a place it onto as any. About a month ago I was
helping my mother setup a new Dell computer. It came with a
Lucent 56K win modem, which was not what we ordered. While
we waited for the replacement non-win modem, we ran AOL on a
number of occasions. On no occaision do I remember the
modem hooking up better than 42K. In some cases it did
not even hook up in digital mode.

After the replacement US Robotics hardware modem came, I was
surprised to see the modem hook up at 52K every time. I’ve
never seen a modem hookup above 48K before.

This jives with something my ISP told me a few years ago,
which is that he thought all Win Modems were dog poop.

Winmodems are dog poop, it’s as simple as that…

Since a winmodem relies on your computer to handle most of the actual
work for it, a real modem will most likely be faster, unless you have a
very fast computer…
