how to use Huawei E153 3g dongle in FC13
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm new to linuxing and trying to use Huawei E153 dongle with FC13, but had no luck.

"lsusb" returned following:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 12d1:1446 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E1552 (HSPA modem)

I tried "usb-modeswitch-1.1.7" too, but I couldn't install it.
Errors which I got are listed in attached error.txt file.

Can anyone help me out on this?

You do realize that when you say you're new to "linuxing", but have been registered here for FIVE YEARS, that it doesn't make sense, right? Especially after you've answered questions in the past.

A brief Google search turns up:

For a different modem, but the steps apply. And you should install usb-modeswitch from your repositories, not from source, unless you ABSOLUTELY have to. Based on your error, it seems you don't have the kernel source installed, either.
