I would like to be able to connect my Ubuntu system to a POTs line for 
handling voice mail and outgoing FAX transmissions.   I hope this is the 
correct forum for this discussion.  I am using an old PCI phone card I 
had for a Windows systems.   The attached ModemData.txt was generated by 
the most recent scanModem.   I am an experienced Linux user/developer 
and know how to build a kernel if I have to.

Thank you, in advance, for your help.

Todd

CPU=x86_64,  Ubuntu ,  ALSA_version=k3.13.
Linux version 3.13.0-77-generic (buildd@lcy01-30) (gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu 4.8.2-19ubuntu1)
) #121-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 20 10:50:42 UTC 2016

Presently install your Linux Distributions dkms package. It provides for automated driver
updates,
following upgrade of your kernel.  For details see http://linux.dell.com/projects.shtml#dkms


Some modem drivers can only be used in 32 bit modem on x86_64 systems,
while some others are competent on x86_64 Systems.  Cases are:
1) http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-seventh/msg03119.html 
for the snd-hda-intel audio+modem driver. Also applicable to AC97 modem controllers.
In both cases, 32 bit libraries must be installed to support the slmodemd helper having
a precompiled 32 bit component.
2) For USB modems using the slusb.ko driver. 32 bit libraries must be installed to support
the slmodemd helper having a precompiled 32 bit component
3) The hsfmodem and hcfpcimodem drivers for Conexant chipsest modes are x86_64 competent.
4) agrsm packages for LSI/AgereSystems softmodems are not competent on x86_64 systems.

 There are no blacklisted modem drivers in /etc/modprobe*  files 

 Potentially useful modem drivers now loaded are:
  snd_atiixp_modem snd_via82xx_modem snd_intel8x0m   snd_hda_intel

 The PCI slot 00:14.2 of the modem card may be disabled early in 
 a bootup process,  but then enabled later. If modem drivers load 
 but the  modem is not responsive, read DOCs/Bootup.txt about possible fixes.
 Send dmesg.txt along with ModemData.txt to discuss@linmodems.org
 if help is needed.

 The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

 Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.8.2
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.8

 linux-headers-3.13.0-77-generic resources needed for compiling are not manifestly ready!

 If compiling is necessary packages must be installed, providing:
	 linux-headers-3.13.0-77-generic


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
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$  apt-get update
$  apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed
package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

It has samples for a modem using port /dev/ttySL0, which must be changed to match your
modem's port.

 Don't worry about the following, it is for experts should trouble shooting be necessary.
