A request to devels as well as anyone with free time monitoring the list :)
Can someone who is testing feisty on a machine with a winmodem test
whether the scanmodem tool is working there and report their experience
at the *bug report*? Bug report at https://launchpad.net/bugs/42454
It's not hard at all. The following link provides information:
Afaik, it cannot break anything in your system. All it does is to tell
you what kind of winmodem you have...
I cannot try bc I'm using a production machine with Dapper with which I
cannot dare to experiment... and the cdimage server isn't working for me
(no answer from server).
PS. If you have free time, you could even try to make your winmodem dial
somewhere in order to test the wiki documentation (which needs to be
offline) and experience what winmodem users experience with Ubuntu. You
probably won't like the latter.
Thanks a lot

I'd like to do more about this bug, but as far as I can see we haven't
had any information about the use of the scanmodem tool in Feisty,
except that it probably doesn't work. Modems are clearly a very
difficult area and we are going to need the developers' input before we
can move any further, I think.
