Adding a driver to IPCop.


Hi there,

Finally I have found a driver for my USB ADSL modem, but I really don't know how to install this driver. I'm using IPCop 1.2. I've read something in an other thread about compiling, but since I'm a newbie I don't know how to do that or what it is.

Please help me.

B.

Is this a tar file (whatever.whatever.tar), or a gzipped file (whatever.whatever.tar.gz)? You'll need to untar it or ungzip and untar it first. Have you gotten that far?

Cheers--

I can choose from these files to download :

EciAdsl stable version 0.7, 2003-03-26 :

.tar.gz eciadsl-usermode-0.7.tar.gz (231 Kb)

.tar.bz2 eciadsl-usermode-0.7.tar.bz2 (202 Kb)

RPM eciadsl-usermode-0.7-1.i386.rpm (220 Kb)

Debian eciadsl-usermode_0.7-1_i386.deb (154 Kb)

Slack eciadsl-usermode-0.7-i386-1.tgz (122 Kb)

Gentoo eciadsl-usermode-0.7.ebuild (1 Kb)

(I can't post the link because you have got to have 5 posts.)

Anyway, untarring will be no problem, but can I do this in windows?

You didn't mention your distro, but if it is RedHat, the grab the rpm and you can install it automatically. Debian uses the .deb file fomat to auto install with apt (though I don't use debian). So, what's your distro.

You won't be able to conveniently do this in windows. You'll have to be in linux.

I'm trying to install IPCop, I guess it isn't really a distro. It also doesn't have a graphical interface and I don't really know any linux commands.

I understand what you are trying to do, I think

So, let me ask this way, what version of linux are you using? RedHat, Debian, Slackware, Mandrake...?

Hang in there.

Cheers--
Charles

I'm not running a linux distro myself, that IPCop is actually a small linux distro, it's a router/firewall with USB ADSL support like freesco.

So I don't have redhat or slackware or something.

Thx for the help, i know it's hard to help noobs like myself .

Hey, I *own* the title noob! So don't sweat being one yourself.

I'll have to read up about IPCop.

OK. You'll need the tar file. You'll also need the gcc compiler and all of the supporting libraries. Do you know if those are installed?

Cheers--
Charles

ok, i'll go and look for the gcc compiler and the libraries because I don't think they are installed. You mean the tar with the Modem drivers, right? I'll get that too.

I've downloaded GCC 3.3, I can't seem to find any libraries though, where do I get them?
I've also downloaded 'eciadsl-usermode-0.7.tar.gz'.

This is very similar to what I hope to achieve. I'm tryin to add hostap support to IP-Cop. From my research you will need to do this:

* Download IP-Cop source
* Download driver source
* Compile IP-Cop source (you will probably need to install a linux distro to compile it) - this is where i am currently stuck
* Include the driver source in the Makefile
* Re-compile IP-Cop with the driver.

If anyone can see ne issues with this plan feel free to comment.
