I have to install linux-restricted-modules-3.0.0-12-generic in order to install my Lucent dial-up internal modem, but in the terminal, Ubuntu says it can't find the file. Searching on the net, it seems this package for this kernel (ubuntu 11.10) doesn't exist. How can I install my modem without this file? Or where can I find it?
