I develop systems using PC's and Linux (generally). Until now I did not
need a modem.
I develop the software on my AMD x86_64 using the excuse that it may
make me more productive,
and then deliver systems that normally don't need that processor speed,
so I use motherboards with a
Duron 1.6Ghz which is more than enough.
This time I did need a modem, and realized that Linux is really at a
disadvantage in that area. Fortuntely
I found Linuxant and bought a license, allowing me to come close to the
end of the development. Now comes
the problem: When I move the modem to the Duron system your software
does not honor the license.
This is a real problem, not only in the cost, but on the time lost.
Please let me know what to do. I believe that
your software should work wherever I move the modem. The modem I use is
out of production, so there is no
question of using your software in more than one system. I could not buy
the same modem even if I wanted to.
And next is the question of what will happen when we go to the future
kernel 2.8, which I suppose will exist some day.
Or any other change in the system.
Please let me know what you suggest. I already saw some other modems
that I would rather use, and not have to deal
with the problem that your software introduces.
