Mandrake 10 and dial up

Postby liljim » Sun Mar 28, 2004 7:13 pm

Hello Guys,

I need some assistance from PCTechforums finest..I set up a dual boot with xp and Mandrake 10 community.Everything runs smooth,just got my nvidia drivers going but the only thing missing is my modem.I know linux doesnt like winmodems but i have a pctel amr modem which is supported on 2.4.x kernel.I need a driver for 2.6.3 kernel.I found an expermental driver,tried it and got the following:
[root@localhost pctel]# ./install
checking for running kernel version...** error
your kernel version is: 2.6.3
this package supports only 2.4.x kernels.
enable experimental 2.6 kernel support.
Please read the FAQ about kernel 2.6 experimental support
patching file ptserial-2.4.7.c
patching file Makefile.orig
patching file FAQ
2.6.3
checking for ptserial...ptserial-2.6.0.c
checking for gcc...3.3.2
searching for kernel includes...found at /usr/src/linux/include
checking for autoconf.h e irq_vectors.h .../usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h -I/usr/src/linux/include/asm/mach-default
checking for kernel_version...In file included from t.c:2:
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h:1:28: linux/rhconfig.h: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: ./t: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `./t': No such file or directory
** error
could not determine a proper UTS_RELEASE
[root@localhost pctel]#


so,i went into the version.h file and changed :
#include <linux/rhconfig.h>

to

#include "rhconfig.h"

Now i get:
[root@localhost pctel]# ./install
checking for running kernel version...** error

detecting your modem...found. Your modem is a sis type modem.

You have to run the configure script first
From within your pctel directory run the below command
bash$ ./configure --with-hal=sis

Now try to compile the drivers

Thanks Gecko,
Nothing i tried worked on the 2.6 kernel but i did get it to work on 2.4.25 (im in linux now using Konqueror).I cant belive the difference in page speeds,i thought i had broadband for a minuite!Guess i'll stick to this kernel until i get a better modem.What browser would you recomend i run?
