sl-modem 2.9.11~20110321-6ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu
sl-modem (2.9.11~20110321-6ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low * Backport fixes from trusty for compatibility with current LTS kernels: - Added remove__devinitdata.diff patch (also refreshed 08_ungrab_winmodem.diff) to remove __devinitdata, as it is no longer needed, and it causes build failures on 3.8.x kernels. Thanks to Marvin Stodolsky <email address hidden>. LP: #1155418. -- Steve Langasek <email address hidden> Wed, 04 Dec 2013 22:44:28 -0800

- sl-modem-daemon: SmartLink software modem daemon
The SmartLink modem daemon is the application part of the
driver for recent modems produced by Smart Link Ltd.
This package replaces (along with hardware access drivers) the old
driver generation (2.7.x) which consisted of kernel modules only.
It needs a kernel driver to access the hardware. This can be either
recent ALSA (shipped with a newer kernel (>=2.6.4) with ALSA support
and snd-intel8x0m module) which is sufficient for basic operation and
data/Internet connection, or the SmartLink kernel driver which is
provided by separate packages which you can build using the source from
the sl-modem-source package.
- sl-modem-source: SmartLink software modem driver - module building source
This package contains source code for the low-level drivers for the
software modems produced by Smart Link Ltd. It supports PCI and USB models.
In addition to this package, you will need the package sl-modem-daemon
which implements the application part of the driver.
Module packages can be built for the custom kernel package either by hand or
