3G modem fixes

June 23, 2009 — BarryK
Rerwin is coordinating the integration of 3G modem detection and operation in Puppy, for use via the PupDial GUI application.

He has posted the latest fix, '' in the alpha9 feedback thread:

Ummm, it looks like the changes that I made in my last post. that is, '', are incorporated into this pet package.

I have updated everything in /etc/udev/rules.d
I have updated /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
I have deleted /dev/536ep and /dev/537 nodes.
I have updated /lib/modules/all-firmware/hso.tar.gz and option.tar.gz
/usr/sbin/has modemprobe, modemprobe_erase, modemtest, pupdial and usb_modemswitch ...ok, I have updated all of these.

Rerwin, I would like to send out a thanks to you for your endless patience with all the guys with modem problems. Me to, I'm signing up for dialup again, very soon. Many people are still on dialup, I know the percentage in the USA is quite high ...even a majority? So, other distros may have moved on, but we shouldn't, and I have decided that I need to keep a dialup account running even if just for testing purposes.

Note, the forum thread where all of this is happening, is here:
I will be uploading the next Woof alpha, and a live-CD version 414 which is intended to be a start on the continuation of the 4.x series -- so testers are encouraged to try that.
