I use mobile with usb-modem to connect to internet , how do i configure it in my LFS?


I have just started with BLFS , and i have lynx browser for reading BLFS online book .

First i used to connect to internet using my linux mint maya's mobile broadband option . I used to chroot into newly built LFS system and used to install packages reading the online book .

But now , i ought to reboot into my newly built system to install packages .
After rebooting how do i connect to internet using my NOKIA C2-00 USB MODEM ?

PS- I have no other option to connect to internet other than my phone .

You know you can download the book for offline reading?
Also after booting into your new system to make sudre everything is as it should be don't be afraid to boot back to you normal system and use chroot. After making the basic system and booting into it to make sure it's ok I then went back to my usual system and installed xorg and xfce from chroot with no problems, rebboted to new LFS installed Nvidia driver and checked everything was fine set up xfce as I wanted it installed and set up firefox and am now back to my normal system to install a load of extra goodies, as long as you check back every so often to make sure your new installation is ok and do any tweaks that can only be done from the booted system ( like the video driver ), you should be ok, also I would take snapshots of your new system before you do anything major ( like installing gnome ) so if something goes VERY wrong you can 'roll back' your install.

Hi aashayshah

Have you built lfs on a laptop or pc. A way that it can be done is make your phone a wifi hotspot then connect wireless

Hi

Not much help I,m afraid, I googled for a solution and found nothing. I have looked through the kernel

device drivers---->
usb support----> there are a few options here (I dont have a nokia phone)

I found USB MODEM

I would make a backup of your kernel config file then maybe have a look at the options in the kernel.

You will need to install NET tools so you can use ifconfig and USB util.

What I did find on net, They mention that you should just be able to plug the phone in no special software.

Maybe someone else can add info to this

I dont think this will be easy sorry

Have you tried
Code:
ifconfig
you might need to run it as root
